CCNA v3.1.1

Hi, I've started and completed my Cisco Certified Network Associate v3.1.1 training at Box Hill Institute in 2006, and have not yet redeemed my exam voucher as I did not sit for the certification exam.

As sponsored by my employer, I would like to seek for formal certification of both CCNA and CCNP. And I have just completed my CCNP-1 Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks v5.0 module this month.

However, when I rang up Pearson Vue to book for the certification exams (640-801 and 642-901) this morning, they could not confirm if the 640-801 exam is corresponds to CCNA Program v3.1.1. And CCNA is a pre-requisite for CCNP exams.

Can I still get CCNA certification? Which certification exam (ie. 640-801 or 640-802) shall I take? Is this CCNA exam corresponds to the materials of CCNA Program v3.1.1?

Please kindly advice.

Hi Mike,

the 640-801 exam has been replaced by the 640-802 exam. Pls. find that information on:

You'll find the topics of the 640-802 exam here:

I think WLANs were not part of the 640-801 exam, but i don't know for sure.

Regards, Daniel

The old 640-801 (CCNAv3) didn't have anything on WLAN's instead it had ISDN.

You need to have a valid CCNA to attain CCNP status, however you can still do all the CCNP exams first you just won't qualify as a CCNP until you get a CCNA
