I have recently passed elearnsecurity ejpt, I am trying to decide between OSCP or SSCP or CEH. Would anyone have any recommendations?

    OSCP, go big or go home. Assuming you want to get into Pen Testing that is

    if you have not invested money into elearn securitys PTP course, then jump into OSCP.

    Getting into pen testing? Understand that CESG CHECK program is used to accredit firms doing pen testing services within UK, similar to US's DoD 8570. And CREST certifications fulfils the requirements. Perhaps you want to check out CPSA and CRT.

    From my own experience...

    I did CEH as helps get past the HR firewall > I read up for SSCP, then decided against doing the exam due to finances and the fact it never gets asked for on any job specs, and instead went for CRT > OSCP!!

    My recommendation if you know you may want CHECK Team Member status later....you could miss CEH, read up on SSCP, go for CRT, then OSCP.

    if you want to be a pentester, OSCP beats CEH hands down
