EC-Council’s Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT) course is growing in popularity. But some people looking for certification still don’t know what’s required for this course. First of all, there are prerequisites. These include becoming CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker) and ECSA (EC-Council Certified Security Analyst) certified, and to complete the steps needed for the LPT course. In order to become certified, students must get a criminal background check, have a resume with references to check certification and experience, and submit license fees of $500 for two years. Overall, the student needs to attend the course for the duration of the days. If you opt to take the course full time, the LPT course runs in one week, 5 days a week for a total of 40 hours. There are no tests for the LPT course, but when taken with the ECSA course, there is an exam at the end of the dual course.
