This course covers techniques and strategy concepts for performing professional web applications penetration testing in a highly secure environment. Our course has been developed around professional penetration testing, web applications development and security awareness in the business and IT fields.

We will start the course by reviewing the key aspects of penetration testing – both in terms of methodologies and legal aspects and reporting. During the course, we will learn advanced reconnaissance techniques, which will allow us to professionally prepare for a penetration test. After discussing the OWASP Top 10 for 2021, we will deep-dive into web browser security mechanisms, vulnerability exploitations, injections, bypassing API controls and many more valuable skills.

Our goal is to show you all the most important aspects of web application penetration testing. Together we will look for vulnerabilities and exploit them in practice in CQURE’s custom-built training environment. During the exercises, we will use industry-standard tools such as the Kali Linux, Burp Suite, Bloodhound, Metasploit and the Wireshark.

To make sure that all participants gain the necessary security concepts and knowledge, our classes have an intensive hands-on labs format and we have prepared tons of exercises that you will be able to perform even after the course concludes, as we will grant you an extra 3-weeks of lab access!

The knowledge used to prepare the unique content of this amazing course has been gathered during tons of penetration testing projects done all around the world by CQURE Experts. The training will allow you to understand the penetration tester’s perspective on security, and learn crucial tools and concepts needed for everyone considering developing their career in penetration testing or cybersecurity in general.

Platform and Technical Requirements:

To participate in the course you need a Stable internet connection. For best learning experience we also need you to have a webcam, headphones and a microphone. Open RDP port 3391 for the connection to the Lab environment is needed as well. We will setup a secure Zoom classroom for every day of the course – we will send you a safe link to join the conference by e-mail.


After finishing the course, you will be granted a CQURE Certificate of Completion. Please note that after completing the course you will also be eligible for CPE points!


Remote Delivery

We are Experts in remote delivery. In the past year, we have organized over 200 days of trainings and we have tested many solutions. The experience remains the same as in the case of face-to-face trainings – a personalized, lab intense training with a lot of interaction between you and the instructor.

Virtual Labs

You will be granted a lab access for the duration of the training and a complementary access for additional 3 weeks after the training concludes with new challenging exercise instructions. With the extra self-study materials, you will be able to refresh your knowledge, acquire new skills and practically apply the techniques you have just learned.

Lifelong Certification

What is wonderful about our certification is that it is lifetime valid with no renewal fees – the technology changes, but fundamentals and attitude remain mostly the same. Our Virtual Certificates, which entitle you to collect CPE Points, are issued via Accredible.

Our students say…

I have attended CQURE’s training as someone who is not a security professional, but just an enthusiast, and I feel like I learned a A LOT. The whole training was loaded with information and nice demos of the latest technologies. On top of that — having an opportunity to ask and talk to professionals was priceless.

All of their classes are based on their real world experience with the products, not just the typical Official Curriculum style classes that teach you things for an exam, but that you will never use. You’ll find that all of the material you’ll learn in the class will be used, at some point, in your security career.
