Amount of time given to complete CCVP once started

Unanswered Question

I am a voice engineer and have been working on IP Telephony since 2004. My plan is to take the CVoice, CIPT 1 & 2, and TUC exams, to get them out of the way and then do CCNA and QoS to complete the CCVP requirements. My question is, once I pass the CVoice exam how long do I have to complete CIPT 1 & 2, TUC, CCNA & Qos? Do I have 3 years to have all of them completed in order to become CCVP certified or is the time shorter? Also, is the CVoice the exam that is taken to satisfy the CCNA Voice Certification or is there a CCNA Voice exam? Any info would help.

I have this problem too.

The CCNA Voice exam is a separate option from the CVOICE exam. Passing the CCNA Voice is a prerequisite for attaining the CCVP certification.

The CCNA Voice exam has recently been broken down into two options, a commercial option and an enterprise option. Passing the CVOICE #642-436 exam will meet the requirements for the enterprise option. The CCNA Voice Certification commercial option continues to use the IIUC #640-460 exam. So this might be a little confusing.

In regards to the time frame to complete the CCVP track of exams the only thing I've found from Cisco is this:

Why do the updated 642 exams have expiration dates?

Placing expiration dates on exams ensures that candidates starting a multi exam certification such as CCNP, CCDP, CCVP, CCSP and CCIP, complete the program within a specified time-frame. By passing all of the required exams within a specified time period, candidates demonstrate that they are tested on current content. In situations where the period exceeds three years, candidates will need to re-take those exams that expire. Associate and

Professional level 642 exams are valid for three years. Specialist focused certification exams are valid for two years.

Cisco does say that you have to have passed an exam within the 3 year period in order for it to be valid for a track of courses. So from the time you start the CCVP track you have 3 years to complete it.
