CCIP exam

please help me, i am prepearing for CCIP exam and i have to pass two exams

  1. 642-691 BGP + MPLS
  2. 642-642 Qos

but the CCIP will be retired after 27th of july so because of that is it possible to pass the 642-691 BGP + MPLS before the July 27th and after that like in December i will go for the 642-642 Qos.

in this conditions can i  get the CCIP certification .

CCIP exam

Hi Wessam,

this won't work, all required exams for CCIP must be cleared before 27th of July.

In my personal opinion there's no need to chase up CCIP, just go for CCIE and you'll be all set.

CCIP exam

no don't say that are you sure???!!!

the only

642-691 BGP + MPLS only will be retired after 27th of July but the

642-642 Qos is still available so why not i can not finish the Qos exam after the BGP+MPLS exam...?

plz are you sure ????

CCIP exam

Wessam, I was wrong, please accept my apologies!

CCIP will retire on 29th of October

July 27th comes from the expiration of 642-661, 642-611and 642-691

so if you manage to clear BGP+MPLS before July 27th and then do QoS before October 29th, you'll get that status assuming you have cleared ROUTE already or will do so in the meantime.

But my Big Advice remains the same - go straight for the lab!

Re: CCIP exam

If you complete the ccip before the end date you can move to ccie R&S or do ccnp SP (and you dont need to take ccna SP)

Yes ccip is valid for 3 years after completing it
