    I’m looking in to taking the self study road to getting myself ECSA/LPT certified, but i’m a little lost: i already figured out that you need to pass the ECSA exam to become ecsa certified, and if you want to obtain LPT you need to submit your certifications of both CEH and ECSA. This is all there is to it, no exam whatsoever, which is a little odd if you ask me.

    Now i was wondering about the following: The ECSA/LPT course consists of 47 modules, where the first 11 are ECSA, the rest are LPT. Is the exam based on the frist 11 modules, or are all modules part of the exam?

    it will probably be a while before i am going to take the exam, but expect a little review when i do…

    The ECSA exam only covers modules 1-10.

    which seems quite a lot for “just” 50 questions, that is less then 1 per module!

    I did ECSA a couple of months ago myself, so I’m quite sure it’s only the first ten ones. 😉

  • #46372

    Seconded. The exam only covers the first ten modules.

    Thanks guys, i’m already through half the course, so i will finish up first and start focussing on the first ten modules.
