646-204 - Cisco Sales Expert

Answered Question
Jul 29th, 2010


I Intend to take up the Cisco Sales Expert (646-204) certification in a weeks time, but the certification info page http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/current_exams/646-204.html mentions that the last date for taking the exam is 21st Oct 2010. Would like to know the following

1) Does it mean the exam will retire after 21st Oct and it will no longer be valid?

2) Am trying to findout which exam is going to replace 646-204, but did not find any info on this in the retired certifications page (http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/le11/learning_retired_certification_exams_list.html)

Would really appriciate if someone can help me here. Thanks



I have this problem too.

Hi Vinayak,

Sorry about that my friend, I didn't explain myself too well

If take&pass the 646-204 exam before the October expiry date

your CSE Certification will be valid for 2 years.

Thanks Rob. I was told that normally Cisco exams are valid for a period of 2-3 years before they actually expire. So if i have got you right, 646-204 will not be valid after 21st Oct??
