CCNP recertifcation - Really confused!

Unanswered Question
Feb 22nd, 2010

Hi eveyone,

I don't this question has been asked before.

My CCNP is valid until Sept 2011 but would like to recertify in the coming months (before 31st july 10).

I've read contradicting comments and just need clarification once and for all.

If I pass ANY one of the following will it recertify my CCNP : 642-901 BSCI, 642-812 BCMSN, 642-825 ISCW; 642-845 ONT ?

I think this is stated at the bottom of this link http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/le2/le37/le10/learning_certification_type_home.html.

OR do I need to pass the 642-892 Composite ??.

Lastly, what exams do i need to do if I decide to recertify after July 30st 10 ?.

Thanks in advance

Truong

Hi Truong,

Good questions

1. If I pass ANY one of the following will it recertify my CCNP : 642-901 BSCI, 642-812 BCMSN, 642-825 ISCW; 642-845 ONT ?

A. Yes. Any of these will re-certify your CCNP. Don't forget ANY 642- professional level exam will re-certify you.

2.OR do I need to pass the 642-892 Composite ??.

A. No you do not need to pass this exam

3.Lastly, what exams do i need to do if I decide to recertify after July 30st 10 ?.

A. ANY 642- professional level exam will re-certify you if taken/passed before your September 2011 date. You could take

any of the remaining or new CCNP 642 exams.

Hope this helps!

According to the Cisco webinar this morning on the new CCNP, if you pass any of the current or new exams, you'll be recertified another three years.


After the 31st, you're going to have to take the new exams to get recertified, unless you've passed one or more of the existing exams before the 31st.  There is a good matrix explaining what you need to do here:

Hope that helps!

What about passing all the old track papers before 31stJul. Would I be able to achieve my CCNP?

As according to the combo tool,selecting

BCMSN

BSCI

ONT
ISCW

it shows invalid path(Screen shot attached ).

Now I am a bit confused here.If a  person clears all the above papers well before 31st Jul, I believe he should be CNNP certified.

In that case, what do you say/

Regards,

Shahid

Hi Shahid,

You would be good to go if those four were passed before July 31

It's just the way the tool loads, have a look below at what is shown in

the Need to take and pass section after entering only BSCI and BCMSN;

Exams

ROUTE
SWITCH
TSHOOT
BSCI
BCMSN
COMP
ISCW - Expires July 31, 2010
ONT - Expires July 31, 2010

Need to take and pass

Candidates must pass both ISCW and ONT by July 31, 2010 if they want to certify using those exams instead of the new TSHOOT exam.

For certification through July 31, 2010:

  • ISCW and ONT
    OR
  • TSHOOT

After July 31, 2010:

  • TSHOOT

Hope this helps!
