The Certified Penetration Testing Consultant exam consists of two parts:
The first part is a completely hands-on penetration test in which the examinee will find specific flags and write a complete report.
The second part are the exams through the online Mile2’s Assessment and Certification System (“MACS”). The examinee will take two exams. One is a few questions selecting the flags found during the hands-on exam and the second is an exam that will take 2 hours and consist of 100 multiple-choice questions.
The hands-on exam requires 4 of 5 systems to be exploited and the 2nd exam requires a 70% passing score. The online exams are accessible in your mile2.com account.
