Answered Question
Mar 9th, 2010

Hello All ,

     Iam planning to take the CCNP exams 642-901 BSCI and 642-812 BCMSN , but i will not be able to take the TSHOOT exam before the end of July ,

so my question is . Will those certifications continue after the end of July so that when i take the TSHOOT exam after the end of July i will earn my CCNP or they will expire and i will have to take the new ones .

Best Regards

I have this problem too.

Hello Osama,

BSCI and BCMSN will count for new track also after 31 July, because they are considered equivalent to new Route and Switch exams.

Of course, they are available only until July 31.

you will need to take TSHOOT to complete your CCNP.

Path 3: Candidates substitute the new TSHOOT exam (or TSHOOT beta exam) for ISCW and ONT, passing three exams to complete CCNP certification. This is the recommended path for candidates who have not yet taken the ISCW or ONT courses or exams and will become the only available path after July 31,2010.
