ethical hacking security

I am very interest in learning computer security, and ethical hacking.
I know basic security from working on computers for a very long time, but I would like to take my knowledge to a higher level
Does anyone have suggestions on a good learning course to become an ethical hacker, and certified in security?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
