CCNP Re-certification

I wanted to verify a scenario for renewing a CCNP certification.


Let's say I have a CCNP that will expire in 1 year. If I take and pass the BCMSN, will it extend my CCNP certification another 3 years? Or will I have to pass all of the required CCNP exams?


Would it be better/easier to study and attempt the written CCIE? (Assuming all CCNP exams are required to re-certify.)


"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 or CCDE written exam."


This information suggests that one must only pass any of the 642 exams, which includes the BCMSN, in order to extend a CCNP certifications valid dates.


I just wanted to confirm with someone who knows first-hand.

Hi David,


The re-cert only requires "1" of the 642- Professional level exams. So, you would be good for another 3 years if you passed the BCMSN.


Hope this helps!
