I noticed something unexpected while looking at Cisco Certification pages.
Cisco firewall specialism is being retired on 17/Nov/2008, while SNPA exam which is part of this specialism is retired on 18/Jan/2009. Both me and few others were caught out by this i.e. preparing to take SNPA exam before it is retired in 2009 only to find out that it will not give us Firewall Specialist Certification now (unless we take it in 3 days time :-)).
I understand that SND exam (which I passed already) is retired on 17/11/2008, but this exam is listed as counting towards CCSP certification till 17/11/2011 !!!!
Who should I raise it as an issue within Cisco?
There are other specialism like Cisco IOS, which have exams (SNRS) retiring on the same date like SNPA but this specialism is not being even listed as retired?
