Exam FAQs

To be eligible to apply to sit for the CEH (ANSI) Exam, a candidate must either: (Prior to being ANSI accredited, EC-Council's certifications were named, based on versions - CEHV1, CEHV2 etc. During that time, candidates that attempted the certification exams were vetted for eligibility. In order to avoid "being double bill", the EC-Council Certification department shall issue a waiver of the application fee of any candidate that has a CEH V1- CEH V7 certification and wishes to attempt the CEH ANSI certification.) or Have a minimum of 2 years of work experience in the InfoSec domain (You will need to pay GBP£100 as a non-refundable application fee); Or Have attended an official EC-Council training (All candidates are required to pay the $100 application fee; however, your training fee shall include this fee)

The fee is GBP £1500
