Before attending this course students should have completed the Comptia Network+ Certification or equivalent knowledge, however, it is not essential to have passed the Network exam.

Although attending this course and passing the exam is not a prerequisite of the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) training or subsequently taking the CEH exam, it is highly recommended.

The CEH program looks at security in an offensive mode, while the Network Security Administrator program looks at network security in defensive mode, therefore they complement each other and help build a complete picture of today's Information Security landscape.


This course provides the knowledge and skills to sit Exam 312-38. Delegates are provided with an examination voucher. The Exam is sat online on the last day of the course.
