CCNP Routing and Switching renewal

I am working overseas and will need to renew my CCNP Routing and Switching by next year, but wont have a lot of time to study. Can I simply take any of the three CCNP Routing and Switching tests(Route, Switch, or TSHOOT) to renew, or would I have to take all three. If not, will ANY CCNP level exam renew my CCNP even if I dont have the CCNA prerequisite?

 

Thanks for any insight you might provide..

Hi Troy, Passing ANY 642

Hi Troy,

 

Passing ANY 642 professional level exam (including any of the previous three CCNP exams) will re-certify your current CCNP (or any new 300 level exam)  :)

 

Cisco Professional-level certifications (CCNP, CCNP Wireless, CCDP, CCSP, CCNP Security, CCNP Voice, CCIP, CCNP Service Provider, CCNP Service Provider Operations, and CCNP Data Center) are valid for three years. To recertify, pass ONE of the following before the certification expiration date:

  • Pass any current 642-XXX Professional-level or any 300-XXX Professional-level exam, or
  • Pass any current CCIE Written Exam, or
  • Pass the current CCDE Written Exam OR current CCDE Practical Exam, or
  • Pass the Cisco Certified Architect (CCAr) interview AND the CCAr board review to extend lower certifications

Thanks Rob, I saw that, but

Thanks Rob, I saw that, but was not sure if I could just retake the ROUTE exam and completely recertify my CCNP ROUTE AND SWITCH.
