EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) has a very well-structured curriculum which will allow you to build extensive knowledge of all the domains regarding penetration testing. The CEH courseware is so comprehensive that it will make your journey to the penetration testing effectively with real-world scenario example and how to use tools in a methodological approach.

What is the best part of CEH training?

The best part of the CEH training is definitely the EC-Council iLabs facility, where you can apply your knowledge gathered from the courseware and can test your ability on penetration testing with pre-configured virtual lab environment.

Recommendation about CEH:

I think the method EC-Council follows to provide industry standard extensive training to be the ultimate penetration tester is pretty excellent. If anyone wants to pursue their carrier as a Cyber Security Researcher or Penetration Tester, then I highly recommend you to start with EC Council’s Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) program then take EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) and finally achieve Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT) certification.
