Why become S-EHP-certified?

The Ethical Hacking Practitioner certificate is a must for professionals who wish to immerse themselves in the art of Ethical Hacking.


This certificate demonstrates that you have acquired intermediate-level knowledge of Ethical Hacking, including the most important practical aspects. You are able to analyse network traffic, hack wireless networks, scan networks and penetrate computer systems and websites. The main goal of this training is to teach you not only “what tool to use”, but also “how to manipulate the application to make it do something it wasn’t designed to do”.

For whom is the S-EHP certification?

This course is ideal for professionals who have to deal with cyber crime in their daily work or have to test business systems to protect them against possible vulnerabilities and leaks. We recommend this course to:

  • Network and system administrators
  • Penetration testers
  • Ethical hackers
  • Security auditors
  • Security officers


Finally, this certificate is intended to be an important career milestone for Ethical Hacking professionals, as it constitutes the second level of a complete and extensive Certified Ethical Hacking Leader certification track. Achieving the Ethical Hacking Practitioner certificate provides students with the necessary knowledge to be able to continue with the Ethical Hacking Expert certificate, and advance their career path to become a Certified Ethical Hacking Leader (CEHL). Students who already possess medium-level Ethical Hacking knowledge can decide to start their training with the Expert level of the certification track.
