The Certification Process
- Obtain a voucher
Whether you are attempting the eMAPT certification exam on your own or after having attended one of our approved training courses, you will need to obtain a voucher before you can start your certification process.
Please note that Mobile Application Security and Penetration Testing course includes at least a free voucher in plans such as Full and Elite.
Once you obtain the voucher you will receive login credentials to our Certification area where you will manage the exam and anything related to the certification process from the beginning up to the shipment of your certificate.
- Begin the certification process
If you have the Full Plan the exam voucher expires 180 days after purchase.
Before that deadline you will have to begin the certification process by clicking on "Begin certification process". The expiration date will always be available in your certification area and reminder emails are sent to make sure you take advantage of the voucher.
- Practical test
As soon as you click on the "Begin certification process" button, you will receive an email with instructions regarding the scope of engagement. This letter will contain exactly what you should test and how.
At this point, you will start your penetration test against the designated targets; take note of your findings and start creating your report.
From this moment on, you’ll have 7 days to perform your tests against the target applications and upload the final PoC.
- Upload your POC
Once you have performed a comprehensive penetration test it's time to finalize your "Proof of Concept".
This should be a working Android application (source code + .apk file).
When ready (max. 7 days from the beginning of the certification process), you will upload your PoC in .tar.gz format for review.
- Obtain your results
One of our instructors will carefully review your application and if your findings and quality is deemed sufficient to pass the exam, you will become an eMAPT.
Should you fail the first attempt, you will be notified via email and are then entitled for a free retake.
IMPORTANT: The retake consists of a new set of applications to tests. You have 7 days to upload your retake report from the moment you download the target applications.
Once you pass the exam you will find the digital certificate immediately downloadable and verifiable.
