Ethical Hacking Practitioner

5-day Ethical Hacking Practitioner course

The Ethical Hacking Practitioner course is the second level in the SECO-institute's S-CEHL certifcation track.


Our Ethical Hacking Practitioner course is a continuation of the Ethical Hacking Foundation course. This course is a must for those who want to immerse themselves in the art of Ethical Hacking.

This training will allow you to bring your Ethical Hacking skills to intermediate level. You will start with such techniques as analysing network traffic before moving on to hacking wireless networks, scanning networks, penetrating computer systems and websites. The question is not “what tool to use”, but rather “how can I manipulate the application to make it do something that it wasn’t designed to do”. The course is very practical because you can only learn Ethical Hacking by doing it.
