All, I'm a certified CCNP but it's going to expire next year, do I need to take the 1 Composite paper or how? Since Cisco System have a new line of courses. Please advise... Thanks!

Hi, shahreezal

Please goto this page.

On the bottom of this page, there is a statement:

CCNP recertification

CCNP certifications are valid for three years. To recertify, pass any 642 exam that is part of the professional level curriculum after 01/01/06, or pass a current CCIE written exam

Please note that the meanining of the so-called "professional level curriculum" only include the following:


So, what you should do now is just choose one exam from CCNP/CCDP/CCVP/CCIP/CCSP and pass it before your CCNP expires, then your CCNP will be recertified.

Hi there,

I've just go through the link that you gave me & to understand more, I would say that if I take any one of the professional level curriculum papers: suchs as, e.g. BSCI from CCNP, it will automatically renew my CCNP for the next 3 years? Am I right?

Thanks for your advise & assistant! Appreciate that.
