Which GIAC exams have labs?

I know GCIA and GWAPT require doing labs on the GIAC exam.  What other courses do people know of which also have labs?  I am particularly wondering about GMON, but am curious as to any others.

    I did the GWAPT and it did not contain labs.  It contained screenshots of tools used, outputs of screens, etc...

    I beta tested the exam labs a while ago and learned here in another post that they went live several months ago in some exams. I tihnk a couple of members said they got the VM scenarios in a few tests.

    The only three that I know of right now are GCIA, GXPN and GSE. I did beta testing for GCIH a year or so ago -- so assume that will be coming as well.

    I can confirm that GXPN had 6 labs.
