Certify your red team’s skills and get ahead of hackers by training for EC-Council’s Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification. For individuals looking to prepare on their own, we offer a CEH Practice Test.


Course Overview

EC-Council’s Certified Ethical Hacker (CEHv11 or “Version 11”) certification is designed for skilled professionals who want to understand how to find weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems. N2K’s CEH certification training course provides your team of security analysts, penetration testers, or vulnerability analysts with foundational red team knowledge and skills in security, procedures, analysis,
and more to better uphold the security posture of the organization.

Our 100% online format makes it easier for your workforce to accommodate training. This Live Online CEH Course is taught online over eight consecutive weeks with live instruction once per week and includes multiple learning tools and materials in our LMS. Resources within the portal are available on-demand for a full six-month access period of the course.


According to EC-Council, it is recommended to have at least two (2) years of related information security experience. Proof of experience is required.

Related Courses

Equivalent certifications to the CEH include EC-Council’s Certified Network Defender (CND) or Pentest+ from CompTIA.

EC-Council also has a Certified Ethical Hacker Master credential, or CEH (Practical), that serves as a “next level” certification following the actual CEH exam.

Who should earn the CEH?

The CEH is an intermediate-level certification equivalent to 2 years of hands-on experience in a security role. Individuals in the following roles are excellent candidates for this certification. 

  • Junior Penetration Testers or Ethical Hackers who want to take their hacking skills to the next level
  • SOC Analysts and Incident Responders who want a better understanding of “hacker mentality” and tactics
  • Network Security Specialists who oversee enterprise networks to source and mitigate vulnerabilities

Benefits of Training

There are a great number of benefits to achieving the CEH certification, but a few highlights include:

  • Ideal credential to validate Red Team skills and abilities
  • Understand the latest hacking techniques and methodologies used by hackers
  • Mapped to NICE 2.0
  • DoDD 8140/8570 approved for CSSP Analyst, CSSP Infrastructure Support, CSSP Incident Responder, and CSSP Auditor
