CCNP confusion

Answered Question
Feb 4th, 2010

hi guys

i did the routing and switching before they changed last time around (summer 2006) . i had 3 yrs to do the other two but didnt get them done, are these irrelevant now?

i am almost ready to do the ONT, if it do this before july will this qualify towards my CCNP if i get the others ones in the next 3 years or has that changed also?

thanks for any help

I have this problem too.

Sorry I misunderstood your question. Yes I beleive you can sit for the CCNP exams and then take your CCNA.

If you did the Routing and Switching in the summer of '06 then they would have expired in the summer of '09 so based on that you will need to retake them. If you are ready to take the ONT and you take it before July then yes it will quailify towards your CCNP, But you may want to consider this. If you do take the ONT you will have to take and pass the ISCW also before July 31st and then take 642-902 Route and 642-813 Switch within 3 years. So that means you will have to take 4 exams. If you stopped and did not take the ONT and just went this path, 642-902 Route, 642-813 Switch, and 642-832 TShoot, then you could get it in three exams. And on final thing, if you are still strong in Routing and Switching you can still take the 642-892 Composite by July 31st and then you would just have to take the 642-832 TShoot exam with in 3 years and you would be CCNP in two exams.

Unfortunately, you will have to take the CCNA again if it is expired. A valid CCNA is required to get your CCNP.....sorry.
