Hi,

I have a question.  I passed my CCNA last year, so I have about a year
and half until the three years are up.  I wanted to go for my CCNP but
I do not currently have time.  I started a new job which took up a lot
of time and am going to start my Masters in the fall.  If i just pass
one of the CCNP tests does that reset the clock?  If I pass one and it
does reset the clock, do I have to pass the other three in three years
or everytime I pass a test will it reset the clock?  I ask because I
am taking two Masters programs back to back and will not be completed
with these for four years.

THanks for the advice.


Re: What is the least I can do?
Each CCNP exam will reset the clock to 3 years.

so u have can do the exams over 10 years :|.

Even when the new exams come out your first one is still valid, well in
the past it has (not sure if they stay valid)

You don't have 10 years to get your CCNP. Each CCNP exam will also expire.
Correct me if I'm wrong but you have 3 years to get your CCNP.

Corb,

You see in "Cisco's Certification Tracking System"
then Certification Progress

Under CCNP u see

Complete one item
Routing (640-503) **
Routing (640-603)
Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (640-900) **
Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (640-901) **
BSCI (642-801) **
Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (642-901)

** This requirement is no longer available. If you have already
completed it, it will count towards your certification status. However,
if it is not yet complete, you should complete the other requirement(s)

Seem like the old exam still count and don't "expire"

The exam's don't expire only the Certification expires.
