Get $200 off through the end of 2019!
October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, and we thought that would be the perfect time to announce that we’re offering $200 off the price of CEH (Practical) exam vouchers through the end of 2019! That means you could register for this exam for only $300 instead of the usual $500! The voucher is good for 1 year from the purchase date, so you don’t have to be completely ready to take the exam when you buy the voucher.
What is the CEH Practical?
The CEH Practical is the next step for those who have achieved the CEH credential. This rigorous exam is 6 hours long and includes 20 realistic scenarios with questions designed to validate critical skills in the ethical hacking domains that are outlined in the CEH program. Where the CEH exam is about validating knowledge, the CEH (Practical) is about showing that you can implement that knowledge in real-world scenarios.
This exam makes use of virtual machines, networks and applications to mimic a real corporate network. In the exam, you’ll be presented with scenarios and asked to put into practice the knowledge gained from CEH training.
CEH (Practical) credential holders have demonstrated their ability to:
- Exploit their understanding of attack vectors
- Scan networks to identify live and vulnerable machines in a network.
