Help a small help to clarify some doubts.
I have passed my CCNP certification in August 2008. I have passed the exams 642-892 Composite, 642-825 ISCW and 642-845 ONT.
My CCNP is valid till July 2011 (3 years from the date of passing).
Now I am planning to complete my CCIP certification in the month of August 2010 considering the following exams:
642-892 Composite (already passed)
642-642 QoS (will attempt the exam)
642-691 BGP + MPLS (will attempt the exam)
Now my question is, Cisco has announced that the last date to take the 642-892 Composite exam is 31-July-2010. (Note: I have already passed the exam). So if I pass the other two exams (642-642 QoS and 642-691 BGP + MPLS) after 31-July-2010, will I be able to achieve the CCIP certification or will I have to pass the new 642-902 Route exam?
Thanks in advance.
Your composite exam will be valid for 3 years from the date you passed it. You will need to pass the other exams for CCIP within this time period. See the following links.
Hope this helps.
