    I’m 15 years old and would have completed my CEH course by september but the problem is I require 2 years of security experience which is not possible as I’m only 15 or I should have attended a EC-Council training session,if one of these 2 conditions are fulfilled only then can I appear for the exam.I can’t find a training centre in Lahore,Pakistan.What do I do to appear for the exam?

    Look at EC-Council i|Class sessions.. All the benefits of an EC-counsel class from the comfort of your own home. You may also want to email the EC-Council for additional options.

    Just for my curiosity, why do you want to get certified in anything at 15 years old? I understand getting the information but the certification really only matters when it comes to getting a job.

    So, why you want to get certified so soon ???
    It would be increasing knowledge and information too,as it might be place of interest.
    But validity of Completing CEH certification is only 3Years.
    So, you need to validate again after 3 years. Its better you do Certs when you seek job.

    You’re only going to be wasting your time getting some certs now. Certifications go along with experience (professional experience). Coming straight out of high school or even college with a C|EH is practically useless. CompTIA certs are 0 experience certs, meaning you can have 0 experience but have A, Net and Sec+ and land a job. C|EH is a 5 year experience cert (in my opinion). If you have a C|EH and less than 5 years professional IT experience, I won’t hire you (it doesn’t have to be 5 years in CS, just 5 years in IT). Same with GPEN, GCIH, GCIA etc.

    I commend your ambition, but you’re working really hard to skip a very valuable step. Start at the bottom, develop your skills in an IT field (Cyber security is not an entry level career field) and get a foundation. Honestly your C|EH will expire before you even get to use it.

    Would you suggest some IT fields in relation to these for gaining a solid foundation?

    It really depends on the specific security field you’re interested in. Trying to understand cyber security as a whole is a HUGE undertaking for even seasoned professionals, for that reason it is broken down into Network Security (switches, routers, VPN etc.) or Webapp (php, RoR, javascript, etc.) or software (C, C++, python, ruby). If you’re not sure what you really want to focus on I’d say network help desk is probably the best place to start since every security field requires a solid understanding of TCP/IP. For career implications though getting into software has a longer path because it sets you up for Malware Analysis and reverse engineering where as the network path kind of falls off career potential wise.

    By reading would be your best option. I believe you can sign up for the Juniper online training courses for free. In some of the basic Network Fundamentals videos have pretty good explanations

    The Network Fundamentals E-learning is the course, its a decent little video with pretty good explanations. The subnetting is really well explained in this.

    According to me, if you have good knowledge and sharp mind, experience is not required 🙂

    Certification can add value in your resume but knowledge is must so you have to focus on your knowledge.

    I have done CEH V9 course but side by side I increased my knowledge from online, read informative articles, Watched videos, used online tutorials and much more.
