Certified Ethical Hacker Program

Group Training + View more dates & times


The Certified Ethical Hacker certification is one of the most sought-after cybersecurity certifications around the globe. Organizations like the DoD and ANSI have endorsed and/or accredited the CEH course.

Want to Master CEH? This program incorporates instruction and practice to get students ready to take the CEH certification exam as well as the CEH Practical Exam. Candidates who successfully pass both exams earn the CEH Master credential as well as their CEH certification.

And if that wasn’t enough to get your blood pumping, we are bundling either the CPENT pen-test self-paced program to help you get your skills moving toward a career in pen-testing or the CHFI self-paced program to help you get you ready for a career in computer forensics.

CEH provides an in-depth understanding of ethical hacking phases, various attack vectors, and preventative countermeasures. It will teach you how hackers think and act maliciously so you will be better positioned to setup your security infrastructure and defend against future attacks. An understanding of system weaknesses and vulnerabilities helps organizations strengthen their system security controls to minimize the risk of an incident.

CEH was built to incorporate a hands-on environment and systematic process across each ethical hacking domain and methodology, giving you the opportunity to work towards proving the required knowledge and skills needed to achieve the CEH credential. You will be exposed to an entirely different posture toward the responsibilities and measures required to be secure.

Now in its 11th version, CEH continues to evolve with the latest operating systems, tools, tactics, exploits, and technologies.

Topics covered include:

  • Trojans and Backdoors

Certified Ethical Hacker CEH Training Common Questions

Is the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) worth it?

If you want to work in Information Security, then yes it is definitely worth it! The CEH certification is listed as a requirement or desired certification for thousands of job postings worldwide. Additionally, if you support the U.S. Department of Defense as either an employee or contractor it is a required certification through the DoD 8570.01-M Mandate.

In other words, if you want to secure a job then it is definitely worth the investment to meet most job posting requirements.

Is the CEH exam hard?

It can be! To be successful on any certification exam, students need to be comfortable with the exam material and they need to be comfortable in a testing environment. We design our classes to address both needs so that students have the best chance possible to pass on their first attempt. If you have little or no experience in the field prior to the exam, then you should invest a significant amount of time studying the material and applying it in testing environments as much as possible. If you have real-world application of the material, it may take you less time to absorb and apply the concepts related to the CEH Certification Exam.

How much does the CEH certification exam cost?

EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) exam vouchers cost $1,199.00.

What is the CEH certification salary?

The CEH certification salary is estimated at $82,966/year, according to Payscale.

The course will prepare students for the CEH certification exam as well as the CEH Practical exam. Successful candidates who pass both will earn the CEH Master credential.

Practical Knowledge

In addition to the two multiple choice certification exams, students will also be given the CEH practical exam.
