CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker), Certification is one of the most respected IT security certifications offered by EC-Council. This certification takes time and effort. It doesn’t end once you have the CEH certification. The EC-Council requires CEH-certified professionals to renew CEH certification every three years. There are steps and requirements for CEH renewal.
We have provided a step-by-step guide on how to renew CEH certification.
It is important to first understand the requirements of the EC-Council ECE programs.
CEH Renewal ECE Requirements
We list the CEH renewal ECE requirements here, but these requirements also apply to all other EC-Council certificates under ECE program: CEH (Practical), ECSA(Practical), LPT [Master], ENSA, CND], CEH, CHFI ECSA, LPT (Master), ENSA and CCISO.
To renew CEH certification, there are three essential ECE program requirements. These are:
1- ) 120 ECE Credits per 3 Years: To renew CEH certification, you must earn 120 ECE credit in each of the three years. There are many ways to earn CEH ECE credit. We will provide information on all options and how to complete ECE requirements for renewing CEH certification.
2- ) Submit 40 CEH Credits for Each Year of the Three-Year Period. The EC-Council expects that you submit your CEH ECE credit each year. This is crucial in the CEH renewal process. You will most likely lose your CEH certification if you wait for the end of the three-year period and don’t earn 120 ECE credit in the last year. To complete your 120 ECE credits and renew CEH certification, you must earn ECE credit each year.
3- ) Annual Membership to EC-Council. Since 2016, EC-Council expects all certified professionals to be an annually member of their organization. This is required to renew CEH certification. The annual membership fee is $80. This is the only way to submit your earned ECE credit during CEH renewal.
