What is ethical hacking?

Ethical hackers (also known as penetration testers) are employed to conduct penetration tests – controlled hacks – on businesses to test systems and find vulnerabilities.

Unlike ‘black hat’ hackers, ethical hackers are security professionals able to provide the knowledge and skills needed to fix flaws before they can be exploited. Businesses that hire ethical hackers get specialist insights from the perspective of an intruder. With this knowledge, businesses can fix vulnerabilities and boost their cyber defences.

What is the cost of the CEH certification in the UK?

To find out the cost of this accelerated course and others, visit our prices page.

How much does the exam cost in the UK?

While the exam is included in this accelerated course, self-study students must apply to EC-Council to determine exam eligibility.

Successful applicants can then purchase an exam voucher directly through EC-Council at a cost of $950 (payments are required to be made in USD).

What are the certification requirements?

EC-Council recommend you hold two years’ IT work experience and possess a basic familiarity with Linux or Unix. Firebrand also recommend you possess a strong working knowledge of TCP/IP and Windows Server.

If you attend Firebrand’s course, or any other official training programme, you will not be required to go through EC-Council’s application process. However, if you wish to attempt the exam without training, you must first be approved through the eligibility application process.
