NA and NP individual exams are valid for 36 months as well as their certificates. You should complete CCSP before Dec 05 2008 as that should be the expiration of your first exam 642-501 (SECURE). Specialization certificates are valid 24 months, they don't affect the 36 months validation of NA and NP individual exams.

Check your exam and certification progress in

If i complete ccsp with in Dec'5th 2008, i have more 36th months(Dec'5th 2011) to expire.ok. But i have completed SNPA also on this month.It is also comes under 642 series.So will i get total 6 years(Dec'5th 2014) of life time to expire my CCSP.
