CCIP exams validity

Unanswered Question
Sep 26th, 2007


just a quick question,

- how log can it take to complete the whole set of exams for CCIP since the completion of the first one, and without letting it expire??

i've had some discussions with some colleagues before and we never agreed on whether it was two or three years

nayone who can tell it for sure??

many thanks

I have this problem too.

each exam is valid 3 years.

so done you're bsci in jan 2006 it's valid until jan 2009. So if you do the QOS and BGP in jan 2007 they will be valid until jan 2010 but if you have not done your MPLS by jan 2009 you will lose the BSCI.

But there is another problem. Cisco might change the courses during this period and than you might end up with nothing.

I'm a training co?rdinator and I advise students to do one course at least every 4 months.

many, many thanks indeed for the trouble in replying;

know what??

i passed the "composite" back in november, 11th 2005, to recertify for CCNP;

then i seized on the opportunity to go on for CCIP, and i started passing QoS on october 2006, BGP in may 2007, and finally i expect to go for the MPLS any time shortly;

just i was going to be pretty close for the 11th november, should the first test expired in just two years,

that was the point of the question
