St. Charles Community College has partnered with EC-Council to work together to train IT professionals. CPC 162: Certified Ethical Hacking and CPC 161: Computer Forensics prepare and authorize students to take the CEH or CHFI certification exams. These highly valued certification exams and classes teach students the offensive skills used by hackers to gain unauthorized entry into a network, and how to gather evidence of such attacks.
As an Authorized Training Center (ATC) for EC-Council, students will learn from a certified EC-Council instructor. Students completing this class are eligible to take the corresponding certification exam. In fact, the certification exam will be administered on the last day of class for those students that purchased a voucher from the SCC Bookstore at a reduced cost.
If you have never been an SCC student, you must complete an Application for Admissions and the Class Add/Drop form. Current SCC students may register online. CPC 107: A+ (Computer Repair & Maintenance) is a prerequisite to this class. In addition, it is recommended that the student either complete CPC 170: CCNA1 before taking this class or take CPC 170 concurrently.
You may pick and choose specific class sequences as you work towards certifications. However, if you plan to earn a degree, please visit our counseling department early in your training.
For more information, contact Mike Fuszner at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to meet. You'll have a chance to talk about your background, experience, goals, take a brief tour and prepare to sign-up for classes if the program fits your educational needs.
Some classes fill up quickly. Students register on a first-come, first-served basis. It is suggested that you register as soon as registration opens up each semester. Spring registration usually begins in late October; fall and summer registration usually begin in early April.
Sufficient enrollment is required to run a class. Classes meet once or twice per week. In addition, students need to spend additional time outside of class.
Training consists of presentations, online learning, and hands-on lab exercises where students apply what they learn in class. All classes are lab-intensive.
