    Default CCNP Exam with CCNA expired?

    My CCNA expires this June (2012) --- does anyone know if I can take my first CCNP exam later than that? I know my CCNA will not be "valid", but does that mean I can't take CCNP exams after the CCNA expires. I can't believe CISCO would expect me to retake the CCNA before moving on to CCNP. Thanks in advance.

    Hello,
    you should try to pass the first CCNP exam before your CCNA exam gets invalid! Otherwise you must do the CCNA exam again.

    The CCNA exam is valid for three years, passing one of the CCNP exams (or any other 642 exam) will extend it for another three years after the day you passed the CCNP exam (or any other 642 exam).

    By the way, keep in mind that a CCNP exam (or any other ...) is only vaild for three years and that you have to pass the other two exams in this three year period.

    Don't get me wrong but finding out that there are only three month left before an old exam gets invalid doesn't sound like good planing.
    Bye, Tore
