I am holding a professionnal certification, one year and half old. If I pass a 642 professional exam now, with that automatically make my certif available for the next three years ? In other terms is it like a sliding window, each 642 exam renewing the certif for three years ?
CCNA, CCDA, CCNP, CCDP, CCSP, CCVP, and CCIP certifications are valid for three years.
To keep them valid you will need to recerify them on or before the expire date.
To to this you will need to Pass any 642 exam that is part of the professional level curriculum after 01/01/06 or Pass any current CCIE or CCDE written exam.
Certifcations, once recertified , renew for 3 years from the date of the passed recert exam.
Hope this helps
