CCNA v3.1.1

Unanswered Question
Jun 30th, 2008

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.

I have this problem too.

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the 640-801 exam has been replaced by the 640-802 exam.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.

Yay another Victorian :) (i'm out in croydon)

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
