CCNA-V without CCNA

Hi all,

I`ve recently left a job where I was studying CCNA amongts doing service support.  I`ve graduated from NetAcad the year before.  The company paid for my exam but I failed by about 20 points.

I`ve left the company and I am now employed by a telephony company, Cisco voice installs on UC-500 platforms mainly.  My new boss isn`t too concerened about me not having the CCNA cert as I have proved that I have the knowledge to support customer networks, but he does want me to get CCNA-V.  He will pay for this.  I have been with this company two months now.  I`ve installed an 80 user UC-560 plaform, supported 35 other customer sites, so my boss believes I have the right skills, drive and knowledge to pass the exam.

Can I do the CCNA-V without having the CCNA cert?  I just don`t want to go through the same old study again when I already know the stuff.  I just want to crack on with the CCNA-V.  I am willing to go back to do the CCNA off my own back but for now I just want to get the voice cert and progress within the company.

Any advice would be great.

Cheers,

Hi Stephen,

You do require a valid CCNA as a prerequisite for the CCNA-Voice exam (cert) not to take

the exam but to actually receive the certification

CCNA Voice Prerequisites

Valid Cisco

CCNA

or any Cisco CCIE certification can act as a prerequisite.

Thanks Rob.

So this would mean I wouldn`t get a certificate through the post if I passed the exam?

Hi Stephen,

You are most welcome my friend

That's correct, you would not receive the CCNA-Voice cert until such time

(you have 3 years) as the base CCNA was passed. When you passed the CCNA

you would get "both" certifications.

Cheers!
