Student Reviews

Ethical Hacking Dual Certification Boot Camp (CEH and PenTest+)

I have never had a better experience in any previous training. The instructor gave the information needed for the test and also shared his real-world experience to bring it together. I would not hesitate recommending this class to anyone interested in CEH.

I have never had a better experience in any previous training. The instructor gave the information needed for the test and also shared his real-world experience to bring it together. I would not hesitate recommending this class to anyone interested in CEH.I thoroughly enjoyed the Ethical Hacking class. I would venture to say it is one of the best technical classes I have ever attended. I feel very confident that I will be able to take my learning experience and be better able to defend our company assets.

The course materials were excellent. The class format was fantastic. The instructor not only prepared us for the examination but also spent a considerable amount of time in learning practical skills for the real world.

GREAT labs. They were relevant to issues faced in the security industry. The classroom instructor had great knowledge and real-world experience to share, which made the class exciting and relevant.

This. Was. Great. Very nice fluctuation of the way and speed the instructor delivered content. Great for me (who has little experience) and great for those who were already skilled in the knowledge/content being delivered. Thanks!

What is ethical hacking?

Ethical hacking is the practice of attempting to bypass the security of a particular system in order to identify threats and the potential for data breaches within a network. Unlike malicious hacking, this process of ethical hacking is planned, authorized, and completely legal.

What is the salary of an ethical hacker?

A Certified Ethical Hacker salary can vary. In the US, Certified Ethical Hacker salaries range from $35,160 to $786,676—with a median salary of $168,948. The middle 57% of Certified Ethical Hackers make between $168,948 and $374,847, with the top 86% making $786,676.

What is penetration testing?

Penetration testing (or pen testing) is a security exercise where a cyber-security expert attempts to find and exploit vulnerabilities in a computer system. The purpose of this simulated attack is to identify any weak spots in a system's defenses which attackers could take advantage of.

What is the salary of a penetration tester?

Burning Glass Technologies reports that the median annual salary for penetration testers is $100,329. While ZipRecruiter lists the penetration tester salary as $116,323 on average per year.

Does this course prepare for a certification?

Yes, you will be prepared for the EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and the CompTIA PenTest+ certification exams and receive an exam vouchers with your enrollment.

To sit for the CEH exam, you will need to meet the following requirements:

  • Complete the exam application
  • The CEH (ANSI) program requires the candidate to have two years of work experience in the Information Security domain and should be able to provide a proof of the same as validated through the application process unless the candidate attends official training.

To sit for the CompTIA PenTest+ exam, the following experience is recommended:

  • Network+, Security+ or equivalent knowledge. Minimum of 3-4 years of hands-on information security or related experience. While there is no required prerequisite, PenTest+ is intended to follow CompTIA Security+ or equivalent experience and has a technical, hands-on focus.
