You have a choice of doing SNPA or SNAF, not both. You would still need to complete the IPS exam and the elective to certify.

Hi ,

Thanks for you reply what confused me is in CCSP certfication page it show under required exams following


SNRS 642-503 or 642-504




so four from above example for SNRS 642-503 or 642-504 meaning one of two not both but it didnt say SNPA or SNAF , snpa and snaf show in two sepearte rows

can you please comment on this.

I see what you mean, it is a tad confusing. But considering the SNAF exam replaces the SNPA (by phasing out the PIX) id say they wont count it towards your 'required' exams.

Thanks for your prompt reply,

sorry to ask again I just need to confirm it, weather this combination is possible .a confirmed answer ,, since i am planing to do SNPA because pix is widely deployed and used in many companies so its very importent that we have a very good knowledge about pix also so i was thinking of above combination .

please comment on this.

I cant tell you for sure. I'd speak to cert support, or maybe someone else can comment.

But I'm 99% sure the answer is going to be that you need to do SNPA OR SNAF. Doing both will not count as two modules.
