In this course, you will learn all the basics things that are required to make a strong base to start to learn actual penetration testing and the advanced things to actually perform penetration tests. In this course, you will learn the basics of networking, Linux operating systems, virtualization, information gathering, vulnerability assessment, and exploitation. We will learn web app penetration testing, network & WiFi penetration testing, and basic stack/buffer overflow.

Can only this course get me a job?

The answer to this question is big no, just kidding. But many young aspirants enter into this field and they think, there are some techniques and tools that they should use to hack into any available machine on this planet, but this is wrong.

The short answer is YES, you should require to learn at least one coding language like C, C++, or Python.
