Certiport will retire the EC-Council Associate program June 30th, 2022. Vouchers and licenses purchased for the Ethical Hacking Associate and Cyber Forensics Associate Exams prior to this date will be redeemable and exam delivery will be supported through June 2023. Moving forward, customers who wish to certify in cybersecurity can now pursue the IT Specialist Cybersecurity certification which covers much of the same material covered in the Cyber Forensics Associate exam. For any questions regarding this change, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
