        The Infosec Institute is an authorized EC Council training and
    testing center and they DO NOT use the "stock" EC Council courseware.

    But to put it simple Greg was asking for opinions and this has turned
    into a mass marketing campaign. Looking back through this thread
    every person that teaches the CEH has piped in and said "theirs" was
    the best.

    Two things, first Gregory was asking for an honest, unbiased,
    reference to the CEH, second these forums were designed to promote
    learning and cohesion among fellow pen-testers, not a forum for mass

    Hey Gregory,

    Being the Information Security Testing Product Line Manager and lead
    instructor / researcher here at Intense School I of course somewhat
    biased, but will try to be honest in my response to this matter.

    I always see a great deal of questions regarding our content and the
    CEH. I also used to teach the OPST and the real issue surrounding
    these "hacking" certifications is industry-wide approval and market
    penetration. When it comes to a world-wide cert. that has achieved
    this, it is the CEH.

    To clarify, Intense School has lead the growth of the CEH in the US
    more so than any other training provider with a very high pass rate.
    With that said we are also the only authorized testing provider who
    does NOT use the official CEH Curriculum. Why you may ask?
    The answer is simple, quality and hands-on education. The curriculum
    provided by EC-Council for this course (while good for some) is more
    like a book than a class and the nature of the hand-on experience is
    almost non-existant.

    Therefor we created a course that met our expectations, which is to
    exceed our students needs.

    Our (current) courseware was developed by Clement Dupuis and John
    Nunez. I have to tell you that in my many years and having written,
    seen and taught many "Hacking" classes, John and Clement did an great
    job, with any curriculum in IT updates are mandatory.

    This class certainly prepares you for the CEH, and to be honest many
    other similar certification, but is written to do more than just

    We are continually working to offer our students the most "Intense"
    training experience. In fact we are the ONLY ones to my knowledge who
    offer the same quality and hands-on training ONLINE.

    If ANY of you have any questions, comments or concerns feel free to
    contact me.

    Again Thank YOU and have a GREAT class, whichever you choose.

    Highest Regards,
