CCNP Recertification

Unanswered Question
Feb 13th, 2008


Could someone please clarify the CCNP recertification policy. Can I recertify my CCNP by taking any professional level 642 exam? For example, even though BGP is a CCIP related exam, could I take the BGP exam and use to to both recertify my CCNP exam and count towards the CCIP certification. Or do I need to retake one of the 4 CCNP exams (BSCI, BCMSN, ISCW, ONT)to recertify my CCNP?


I have this problem too.

Hello a.proctor,

Below I have provided the policy that is listed on the CCNP page.

CCNP Recertificaton


CCNP certifications are valid for three years. To recertify, pass any 642 exam that is part of the professional level curriculum after 01/01/06, or pass a current CCIE written exam.

You can take any 642 exam under a professional level certification not just CCNP related.

Hope this helps.
