Can anyone tell me if there is a 30-day grace period at the end of one's 3-year CCNA certification period during which one can still recert? I just realized that my CCNA expired 1/06/09 and am wondering if there is any "window" to recert or if I need to retake the entire CCNA exam. Thank you in advance.
Sadly not. This was nicely posted by Brandon early last year;
What is the recertification policy for Cisco Career Certifications?
In order to recertify, candidates must complete the recertification requirements or progress to the next level of certification while their certification is still valid. Holders of expired certifications must repeat the entire certification exam process in order to regain their certifications.
Certification candidates are responsible for keeping track of their certification expiration dates. Please plan your recertification accordingly. If the recertification requirements are not completed on or before the certification's expiration date, the certification will expire.
***There is no grace period or time extension for completing the recertification requirements.
Hope this helps! Sorry man!
