The Certified Ethical Hacker program is the pinnacle of the most desired information security training program any information security professional will ever want to be in. To master the hacking technologies, you will need to become one, but an ethical one! The accredited course provides the advanced hacking tools and techniques used by hackers and information security professionals alike to break into an organization. As we put it, “To beat a hacker, you need to think like a hacker”.
This course will immerse you into the Hacker Mindset so that you will be able to defend against future attacks. The security mindset in any organization must not be limited to the silos of a certain vendor, technologies or pieces of equipment.
This ethical hacking course puts you in the driver’s seat of a hands-on environment with a systematic process. Here, you will be exposed to an entirely different way of achieving optimal information security posture in their organization; by hacking it! You will scan, test, hack and secure your own systems. You will be taught the five phases of ethical hacking and the ways to approach your target and succeed at breaking in every time! The five phases include Reconnaissance, Gaining Access, Enumeration, Maintaining Access, and covering your tracks.
Underground Hacking Tools
The hacking tools and techniques in each of these five phases are provided in detail in an encyclopedic approach to help you identify when an attack has been used against your own targets. Why then is this training called the Certified Ethical Hacker Course? This is because by using the same techniques as the bad guys, you can assess the security posture of an organization with the same approach these malicious hackers use, identify weaknesses and fix the problems before they are identified by the enemy, causing what could potentially be a catastrophic damage to your respective organization.
We live in an age where attacks are all susceptible and come from anyplace at any time and we never know how skilled, well-funded, or persistent the threat will be. Throughout the CEH course, you will be immersed in a hacker’s mindset, evaluating not just logical, but physical security. Exploring every possible point of entry to find the weakest link in an organization. From the end user, the secretary, the CEO, misconfigurations, vulnerable times during migrations even information left in the dumpster.

CEH Certified Ethical Hacker - 40 hours
Attend Official Training:
If a candidate attends an official EC-Council training either at an Accredited Training Center, via the iClass platform, or at an approved academic institution, the candidate is eligible to attempt the relevant EC-Council exam without going through the application process.
2. ELIGIBILITY PROCESS
Applicants who do not attend training must prove 2 years of work experience in the Information Security domain via the application form found here: https://cert.eccouncil.org/Exam-Eligibility-Form.html.
If further information is requested from the applicant after the application is submitted and 90 days pass with no response from the applicant, the application will be automatically rejected and a new form will have to be submitted.
On an average an application processing time would be between 5-10 working days once the verifiers on the application respond to EC-Council’s requests for information.
On the application, there is a section for the applicant to list a boss, supervisor, or department lead who will act as their verifier. EC-Council reaches out to the listed verifier to confirm the applicant’s experience.
If the application is approved, the applicant will be sent instructions on purchasing a voucher from EC-Council directly. EC-Council will then send the candidate the eligibility code and the voucher code which candidate can use to register and schedule the test.
If application is not approved, the application fee of USD 100 will not be refunded.
The approved application is valid for 3 months from the date of approval so the candidate must purchase a voucher within 3 months. After the voucher codes are released, the applicant has one year to use the codes.
Should you require the exam voucher validity to be extended, kindly contact firstname.lastname@example.org before the voucher expires. Only valid vouchers can be extended.
An application extension request will require the approval of the Director of Certification.
