+ View more dates & times
  • Overview

    The Certified Ethical Hacker CEH Training course at UMBC Training is a 40-hour immersion into ethical hacking designed to provide professionals with the expertise and insight necessary to prepare for and react to malicious intrusion.

    This class will immerse students in an interactive environment where they will be shown how to scan, test, hack, and secure their own systems. The lab-intensive environment gives each student in-depth knowledge and practical experience with the current essential security systems. Students will begin by understanding how perimeter defenses work and then learn to scan and attack their own networks.  No real network is harmed during these instructions. Students then learn how intruders escalate privileges and the necessary steps to secure a system. Students will also learn about Intrusion Detection, Policy Creation, Social Engineering, DDoS Attacks, Buffer Overflows and Virus Creation in the process. When a student leaves this class, they will have hands-on understanding and experience in Ethical Hacking.

    Topics covered include:

    • Trojans and Backdoors
    • Viruses and worms
    • Hacking Web Servers
    • SQL Injection
    • Physical Security
    • Cryptography
    • Data Loss Prevention
    • Patch Management

    CEH Training Includes:

    • 40 hours of instructor-led training by a CEH certified professional, delivered either in-person or virtually
    • Official EC Council Ethical Hacking & Countermeasures Materials
    • ProctorU Exam Voucher
    • 6 Month CEH iLabs Subscription for practical experience outside of the classroom

    CEH Certification Exam

    Our Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) Training course prepares students to sit for the EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker exam 312-50.  Included in the cost of this course is an exam voucher which can be used to sit for the CEH exam when the student is ready.

    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. Additionally, if you have not taken an official CEH Training Course, like the one we offer, you need to apply for eligibility with EC-Council prior to purchasing an exam voucher. The application process requires proof of 2 years of Information Security related experience and a non-refundable application fee of $100.

    What is the CEH certification salary?

    The CEH certification salary is estimated at $82,469/year, according to Payscale.
