Why is CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker) important?

CEH is a widely recognised ethical hacking qualification that was introduced in 2003. It is regularly updated, and the latest version (CEH v12) covers Parrot OS, enhanced Cloud security, IoT threats, operational technology attacks and fileless malware.

Awarded by the EC-Council, CEH is globally recognised as a foundation qualification for anyone who wishes to develop a career as a penetration tester, SOC (security operations centre) team member or cyber security analyst. 

CEH also provides an essential up-to-date understanding of cyber threats, vulnerabilities and countermeasures for every technical cyber security professional. 

CEH is accredited by the NCSC Certified Training scheme as a Courseware-level qualification that supports the career and skills development of UK cyber security professionals.

Our unique five-day intensive CEH Training Course

Our course is designed to deliver learning in just five days. It is delivered by instructors rated world class, building skills through both theory and hands-on practical labs.

All the key content required to pass the theory exam is covered. The highly interactive delivery includes discussions, Q&As, labs and practice questions.

After the course, you can continue to build your skills with our battle labs to get you ready to sit the CEH Practical exam and become a CEH Master.

Become a CEH Master with CEH Elite v12 training

Access to iLabs for six months after the course allows learners to continue to practise, and test and use the software tools.

Build your red and blue team skills with battle labs 

Our unique battle labs will provide you with a unique interactive opportunity to apply and develop your skills to attack or defend an organisation.

Delivered quarterly, our battle labs use the EC-Council CyberQ cyber range platform to offer the following challenges, in which you can participate in as either an attacker or a defender: 

  • ArbFile – Attempt to gain administrative access and exploit vulnerabilities in web applications and services, or to prevent such attacks.
  • Attentive – This ‘pwn the target’ challenge uses reverse shell exploits, privilege escalation and password cracking.
  • Zig – This challenge uses unauthenticated RCE (remote code execution), ZIP password cracking and red team methodologies.

found the course content met their expectations

“Michael was excellent, his vast experience made the course very engaging and demonstrated the real world application. While this course was delivered via webex, I found it worked very well and didn't detract from the learning - it was very good and I think Michael did a cracking job delivering it like this.”

- Matt Ball, Consultant, WPM Education


“Michael was thorough, helpful and very attentive to our queries and need for information. He was very helpful with the course materials too. I couldn't have wanted a better trainer!”

- Naiya, Information Security Compliance Manager


“Course delivery was excellent. Instructor method of personal slides followed by using the iLabs was very effective as I already had performed the demos and had better understanding before even using iLabs. If I had just jumped into using the iLabs without the instructor interaction I would have learnt less from the Course. I am very happy that we did not learn this course in parrot fashion. Thanks for the course, Michael.”
