I want to know whether I have to give my recertification exam for ccnp before the expiry date or it can be given on the expiry date even?

Also I want to whether the expiry date of the certifications is from a fixed time zone or it is local to the country?

Any help on these queries would be appreciated.

Kind Regards,

I am 99.9999% sure they go by the date that is listed on the exam.  So if it says you need to renew by April 20. 2010, today, and you go to take a test that shows the date of the test as April 20, 2010 then you will be okay.

If you wait till after midnight in your timezone, but fly to a testing center that is still open and still April 20, 2010 and you take a test in another timezone then the test will still show that it was completed on April 20, 2010 and thus you will be recertified.

Thanks for your reply Ryan.

Hope it is like you say. Well my certification expires tomorrow 21st of April 2010 and I have booked another professional level exam for tomorrow at the 1st time slot available. So supposedly my ccnp should renew.....

Anyways once again thanks for your time and effort.
