Certified Ethical Hacker Training Course
Purdue’s Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) course is a comprehensive online bootcamp that teaches information security professionals how to find vulnerabilities in information systems and prepares those professionals for the Certified Ethical Hacker certification exam.
With the consent of organization owners, students learn to systematically inspect the organization’s network and system infrastructures to locate vulnerabilities that malicious hackers could exploit. Upon assessing the system’s security to determine if unauthorized access is possible, students learn how to close those security breaches.
The course leverages Purdue’s highly ranked cybersecurity programs and faculty with its online course design expertise to bring students a tailored online experience. Those who complete the course receive a voucher, good for up to one year, with which to take the CEH certification exam from the International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants (EC-Council), which is the international professional organization that oversees the Certified Ethical Hacker program.
The CEH course takes approximately 40 hours to complete and meets Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
