How to become penetration tester

Hello Dear Friends,
how are you all i hope everyone is doing well,
I have a question about how I can become a pen tester.
I’m currently learning from Cybrary as a free course but I think once I’m done with free then I will upgrade it.

Can I upgrade my plan with monthly installments?

Welcome to Cybrary!!! I have a video on this topic. It’s about an hour long so stick with it. I will post the link once it is up on YouTube (moving my content from Zoom).

Thank you sir for your response.

It is a great career field. This space can be overwhelming and information overload. It can be hard to do one class or focus at a time. We are here to help if you need it as well. As you go through the courses prior to joining just let me know. Pen Testing is one of my favorite fields.

You can also pay monthly for Cybrary but the annual does give you a better deal. Just depends on what you want. You can use my code if you want to get a discount:

75% off first month: MARKMONTHLY
10% off annual subscription: MARKANNUAL

Thank you Sir I appreciate it.
well, I have financial issues so thats why cannot afford it annually I will try to pay monthly.

Another question : I’m now pursuing offensive penetration testing whih has lab but if i did not upgrade then i could not acess to lab can i get certificate after completing the course witout upgrad it ?

I’m a little lost on the question. You are taking the Offensive Penetration Testing course which has labs. You want to know if you can complete the course without taking the labs? I believe the labs are optional, meaning you can complete the course with or without taking the labs. I don’t think upgrading will remove your access to the labs. If you are taking the course as a free user, then again, the labs are optional and you can complete the course without the labs.

yea, sir,
Now I’m just doing free courses but I’m thinking the labs are optional and if I complete the course then can I get the certificate without doing the optional labs?
