Many of the core courses in the Master’s and Bachelor’s degree program parallel the knowledge requirements for EC-Council certifications. Once a student has completed and passed the corresponding ECCU course, then they are eligible to test for the EC-Council certification. Students must pass the test to achieve the certification. Receiving a passing grade in the ECCU course does NOT guarantee a student will pass the certification exam. While passing the ECCU course waives the education requirement, students are responsible for the cost of the exam. For more information contact ECCU at: [email protected].
