Examination format
The format is the same for both the Infrastructure and Application Certified Tester exams.  The candidate will be expected to possess not only the technical ability to find security weaknesses and vulnerabilities, but also the skills to ensure findings are presented in a clear, concise and understandable manner.  The examination consists of three tasks:

  • A multiple-choice written examination
  • A hands-on practical examination in two sequential sections. The first component will comprise a Scenario question demarcated from the practical component and designed to mimic the skills required to perform a build review and author a client report on the findings.  The second component will be a practical test (now referred to as an Assault Course)

To pass the exam, the candidate must pass all sections.  The written elements of the examination are delivered at Pearson Vue test centres;  the practical element is delivered at a CREST examination centre.  Candidates must hold a valid pass in the written element of this examination in order to sit the practical element.

The course uses specially designed applications running on a variety of web application platforms and now covers a wider scope than purely traditional web applications to include more recent advances in the field of web application technology and security to pass the CREST CCT Exam .
