Black Hat Training Certificates

Black Hat now issues all Training Certificates of Completion in digital format. Digital credentials provide a more sustainable, verifiable and secure pathway for Black Hat Training attendees to share their achievements.

All Black Hat Trainings participants will be issued a digital Certificate of Completion at the email address associated with the attendee registration. Certificates will not be issued to attendees not physically present at their registered Training course.

Please note: If you do not receive a Certificate of Training Completion, you must request it no later than 48 hours after the end of the conference. Black Hat will only send you the certificate electronically. Black Hat does not replace lost, stolen, or misplaced Certificates of Completion.
