This course is equivalent to the Tigerscheme QSTM or CREST CRT qualification.

In partnership with IRM, our five-day course is designed to help qualify Penetration Testers to test on government and commercial systems, which—alongside gaining security clearance—will support obtaining CHECK Team Member status. You will learn and practice current techniques used by industry qualified cyber-security Penetration Testers when conducting engagements in real world environments.

It includes the theory, as well as immersive, hands-on demonstrations and exercises to harness security testing skills in four days, with the fifth day dedicated to assessments. It can be delivered at the PGI Cyber Academy in Bristol or in some circumstances can be delivered at client premises for group bookings.
