Advantages to Getting a Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) Certificate

The CEH course is part of the EC-Council iWeek library of courses. It aims to equip participants with practical insights into the cybersecurity domain. The course concludes with an exam, and upon successful completion, participants can order their certificate, signifying their expertise in ethical hacking.

More About the CEH Certificate

CEH v11 covers over 500 new threats and vulnerability scenarios. The course covers diverse security challenges such as Advanced Persistent Threats (APT),  Fileless Malware, and Cloud Attacks. It also discusses the future of cybersecurity by covering AI and Machine Learning-based threats.

The course teaches a systematic approach to ethical hacking, ensuring that professionals can reliably find and address vulnerabilities. The course may also discuss different commercial-grade hacking tools and techniques. This knowledge helps professionals anticipate and counteract potential breaches.

Why Should You Get a CEH Certificate?

Having a CEH certificate opens up a wide range of job opportunities in cybersecurity, such as Penetration Testers and Security Engineers. CEH certificate holders are also reported to earn more than their non-certified counterparts. In 2020, professionals in the US who earned their CEH certification were reportedly earning about $96,000 a year. 

The CEH credential meets the requirements of Directive 8570, earning recognition by the US Armed Forces. This directive provides guidance in conducting Information Assurance functions as required in their line of duty. Said recognition opens up opportunities in the public sector for those with a CEH certification.

Said certification can also serve as a launchpad for other advanced certifications in the cybersecurity domain. This includes the EC-Council's Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT) or the Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) if you're interested in continued learning.

Get Your CEH Certificate at FSE ICC

We at FSE ICC offer the EC-Council CEH program in two formats - iWeek and iLearn. Both aim to equip learners with the skills and knowledge to become certified ethical hackers, but they are delivered in different ways to cater to different learning styles and schedules.

  1. Certified Ethical Hacker iWeek - iWeek is a live, online, instructor-led training model, ideal for those who prefer interactive learning. They can ask real-time questions and interact with their instructors and classmates. Typically, iWeek courses are scheduled for a specific date and time, making them ideal for those who can set aside dedicated time for the course and who learn better with structure and live interaction.
  1. Certified Ethical Hacker iLearn - On the other hand, iLearn is a self-paced, online training model. This option is more flexible, allowing learners to complete the course anytime and anywhere. It works great for those with busy schedules or learners who like to take their time to digest the course material. The iLearn package generally includes one year of access to the online training, an exam voucher, and other related online resources.

In essence, both iWeek and iLearn lead to the same CEH certification, and the choice between the two largely depends on your personal learning style, your schedule, and how you prefer to engage with the course content.
