My CCVP expired about a year ago along with my CCNP and CCNA. I'm looking at getting my CCVP back and see that a pre-requisite is the CCNA Voice. So it looks like I can take the regular CCNA along with CVOICE and that will give me the CCNA Voice. Since CVOICE is one of the tests for CCVP I figured this would be the best and cheapest route to getting my CCVP again. I figure 6 tests in all at a total cost of $1000. Does this seem like my best route or can someone suggest another path?
Yes, this is definitely your best path. As you're aware, expired certifications cannot be renewed, so you'll be starting from scratch.
Hope this helps.
