Two-day and four-day Black Hat Trainings participants will be issued a Certificate of Completion. If you do not receive a Training Certificate of Completion, you must request your certificate no later than 48 hours after the end of the conference or you will not receive one.

Please note: Black Hat will send you the certificate via email, not US First Class Mail or Federal Express. Black Hat does not replace lost, stolen, or misplaced Certificates of Completion


Black Hat provides Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits for those who are certified through ISC2:

  • 16 CPE credits for two-day Briefings
  • 16 CPE credits for two-day Trainings

You can request CPE credits by entering your certificate number on the online registration form.

Special service for CISSPs and SSCPs: Black Hat will automatically forward your earned CPE credits to ISC2 upon completion of Training and/or Briefings, thirty days after the event has ended. Please allow four to six weeks for ISC2 to post your hours.

CPE is a globally recognized standard unit of measure for continuing education for security professionals. Please see ISC2 for more information regarding the certification process. Please note Black Hat does not maintain records of earned CPE credits. It is the responsibility of the student to maintain his or her own records.
