The Raipur based academic group plans to promote CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker), the flagship course of EC-Council along with the latest version of the basic security certification CSCU (Certified Secure Computer User) – CSCUv2 in its own campus.

Apart from its own students, the Rungta group will be providing training services for EC-Council certifications to students of other institutes as well, all through India, through the Rungta Skill Academy. Every candidate who successfully completes the training will be awarded the respective certification by EC-Council.
