CCNA certification validity

Answered Question
Jun 7th, 2009

Hi,

I currently hold a valid CCNA certification and it expires by end of 2009.

Does taking up 640-721(CCNA Concentration - Wireless) exam helps me to extend the validity of my CCNA certification ?

Thanks,

Sathish Kumar

I have this problem too.

But if you go here: http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/learning_about_recertification.html it says

CCENT, CCNA, CCDA Complete one of the following recertification options:

Pass your current certification exam. For CCENT and CCNA, ICND 2 will also recertify.

Pass a CCNA Concentration exam (wireless, security, voice)

Pass a current Specialist exam (excluding Sales Specialist exams)

Pass any Professional level exam bearing a 642 prefix

Pass a current CCIE or CCDE written exam

Achieving or recertifying any of the certifications above automatically extends your active CCENT, CCNA, and CCDA certification(s) up to the point of expiration of the last certification achieved

Any idea how to verify which information is correct?

Just passed the CCNA Security (much more zone policy firewall on test than in book) so I guess I'll find out in a couple days which of the two answers are correct.

I used the CCNA Security Official Exam Certification Guide from Cisco Press by Watkins and Wallace. I also used a few practice questions found somewhere on Cisco's site but I can't find them at the moment.
