    eCPPT Learning Objectives

    eLearnSecurity by INE certifications are designed to challenge you to think through cyber security challenges like an analyst, rather than simply a series of multiple choice questions. The eCPPT doubles down on this by challenging you to solve real-world labs and then create a bespoke technical write up that includes why the systems could be compromised and how to solve the issues that allowed the exploit occur. This exam is not for the faint of heart, providing you with up to 7 days to complete the labs and another 7 days for your writeup. To pass this exam, you need to prove mastery over a multitude of areas including Network Pentesting, Web Application Pentesting, WiFi Pentesting and System Security. In order to accomplish this mastery, you must have an array of toolkits including Privilege Escalation, Exploit Development and Information Gathering and Reconnaissance.
