I have just obtained my BCMSN and my company ask me to work on the CCVP.
I was just wondering how long my bcmsn will remain "active"
cause if for exemple I pass my ccvp, my ccna will be recertified for 3 years, which is the only condition for the bcmsn..
Any answer ?
The CCNP cert 3 years start after you pass the last of the exams? or since you meake the first one?
Your BCMSN exam will be valid for 3 years. Below is the info from Cisco. So if that was your first test passed for the CCNP, you would have 3 years to pass the 3 remaining tests. Essentially it works out that all tests for a specific certification need to be passed within a 3 year span (if I am interpreting the info below correctly). Hope this helps.
Do certification exams expire?
* CCENT, Associate and Professional level 642 exams are valid for three years from the date the exam was passed. Specialist focused certification exams are valid for two years from the date the exam was passed.
* Placing expiration dates on exams ensures that candidates starting a multi-exam certification such as CCENT, CCNP, CCDP, CCVP, CCSP and CCIP, complete the program within a specified time-frame. By passing all of the required exams within the specified time period as noted above, candidates demonstrate that they are tested on current content. In situations where the period exceeds three years, candidates will need to re-take those exams that expire.
