I just passed the Junior Penetration Tester certification, provided by eLearnSecurity.
If you have never heard of it, eJPT is a 100% practical certification on penetration testing, the first one among the roadmap as a network penetration tester.

I won’t be reviewing this course/certification because I only bought the voucher to take the exam without studying the related material. Given that, it won’t be fair to judge without tasting the whole experience that eLearnSecurity provides. There are a lot of reviews about it out there anyway!
The exam was pretty easy. It was a Blackbox penetration test that wasn’t CTF-ish but in my opinion not realistic either. The network topology was pretty basic for a real corporate network and the hosts were pretty vulnerable by default. But I guess that is the point of a Junior Certification.
It can also be verified online!
Although I don’t recommend taking the exam without studying the related material, if you decide to proceed the way I did, you can still study from the Barebone Edition course for FREE!
You wont get LAB time or be able to download the course but you can view some slides online!
As mentioned in the website:
“For a limited time, all new members of EH-Net get eLearnSecurity’s Penetration Testing Student (PTS) – Barebone Edition course for FREE!
Simply register now AND login successfully to EH-Net at least once, and you’ll then receive an email with instructions on how to redeem your free pentesting course with lifetime access to the training material. See PTS Plan Comparison Chart.”
I won’t give you any tips about the exam because I don’t want to spoil anything. Just do what you have learned, take the obvious path and you will do fine.
Happy pentesting 🙂
