CCNP Re-Certification Expired

Unanswered Question
Sep 24th, 2008

Hi everyone,

I recently noticed that my CCNP expired a few months back. I never received a reminder by email as stated on Cisco's site.

So now I presume that I have to start from scratch. Does this mean I have to re-do the CCNA before completing the CCNP again ? Is there any way for me to get my CCNP back without going through all that process again ?

I might want to take the CCSP certification instead of the CCNP, but it also states that I need the CCNA too. Seeing as how I have been through this process before, can I take the CCSP exams without doing my recertifications ?

Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.


I have this problem too.

If your CCNP is expired, you will need to retake the exams to regain your certification. If your CCNA is also expired, you will need to retake that exam as well. You can take the CCSP exams without recertifying, but the CCSP will not be valid until you have a valid CCNA.

Hope this helps.
