R&S : Written 3.0 passed. Whats about 4.0 ?

Unanswered Question
Jul 20th, 2009


I've succesfully passed the written 3.0 exam. It appears that the 3.0 lab will not be available at the 18th october, so I will apply for a v4.0 lab. My question Can I complete CCIE R&S with my v3 written and a v4 lab ?

Thanks for your answer


I have this problem too.

You can take the v4.0 lab if you have passed the CCIE v3.0 written as long as the written is still valid.

"Q: What if a candidate has passed the v3.0 written but not the lab? Will he/she have to retake the written exam?

A - MG: No, as long as a candidate's v3.0 written exam is still valid, meaning they passed it less than three years ago, they will not have to retake the written. I would strongly encourage those who've passed the v3.0 written to take the v3.0 lab exam before it is retired on October 18, 2009, if at all possible.
