Hi all,

Curently I have CCNP and I want to receive CCDP. However BCSI I passed for CCNP was 642-801 and BCMSN was also old. Requirement for CCDP is 642-901 and 642-812 or composite. Is it neccesary for me retake BSCI/BSCI/composite?

I have this problem too.

As long as you passed the tests within the last 3 years, they should still be valid towards the CCDP. Here is Cisco's info about older tests counting towards the current CCDP.


Many of the retired CCDP exams that were offered are still valid towards the CCDP certification. Those candidates who have passed earlier versions of the CCDP exams (such as 640-603 or 640-503) are able to apply those exams towards the CCDP certification requirements.

The retired Routing 640-503, Routing 640-603, BSCI 640-900 and BSCI 640-901 will fulfill the same requirement for CCDP certification that the current BSCI 642-901 exam does. In addition, the retired Switching 640-504 and 640-604 exams will fulfill the same requirement for CCDP certification as the current BCMSN 642-812. Lastly, the retired Foundation 640-509 and Foundation 640-841 exams also remain valid towards the CCNP certification path. These exams will fulfill the same requirement as both, the current BSCI 642-901 and BCMSN 642-812 exams.

The following exams are no longer valid towards the CCDP Certification:

ACRC 640-201

ACRC 640-403

CLSC 640-205

CLSC 640-404

CMTD 640-206

CMTD 640-405

Foundation 640-409
