CEH eligibility for self study??

First, I am new to this web site. If I post the thread in the wrong section, please let me know. Thanks.

The question I have is I want to do the self study for CEH. I know I need to complete the eligibility form and fax it to EC-council for approval. The question I have is will it expire after I get approval? Like 3 months, 6 months or 1 year? Should I get approval now then begin my preparation or should I wait until I am very close to take the test then try to get approval?

Please advise, thanks.

Re: ECH eligibility for self study??

Welcome to EH.NET.

I did the self study route, and waited until I was ready before submitting the paperwork.  Plus, if you wait, that's more "experience" you have, and the less likely they are to reject your request.  I've read elsewhere that people have done self study, just got past their required two years in the security field, and  their requests for a voucher were denied.

Plus, and this is speculation, the voucher may only be good for a certain version of an exam.  The current version is v5.  If you received your voucher, and v6 of the exam is released, the criteria may change, and the voucher becomes invalid.

I'd just wait until you were close to ready to sit for the exam.

I think rance is right. I did the self study too and waited till I was ready for the exam. I would say just be aware it takes a long time for them to process the application and send the code. It almost took 3 weeks for me.

Hey mtu,

Welcome to EH-Net. I think the other members answered your questions pretty well. The only thing I would add is that v6 is being released by EC-Council this year at Hacker Halted.
