    CCIE written with no CCNP - migration question

    Steve

      My CCNP in route and switch expired last year but I have since passed the CCIE R&S written.  I understand I can take the lab after February 24, 2020 and get the new CCIE, but until I pass the lab exam do I have anything?  I think I read somewhere that I would automatically have the Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Core.  Is that true?  And if so, doesn't that mean I have less than if I had a CCNP?

          Hi!

           

          The effect will be from February 24th, 2020 because there won't be pre-requisites for different level certifications

           

          Migrating to the new program

          On February 24, 2020, the new CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure v1.0 certification will replace the current CCIE Routing and Switching v5.0 certification.

          If you have started working toward the current CCIE Routing and Switching certification, keep going. In the new program, you’ll receive credit for work you’ve completed in the current program.

           

          *If you pass the current CCIE Routing and Switching Written v5.0 exam before February 24, you’ll  be eligible to take the new CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure v1.0 lab exam after February 24.

          *After February 24, the CCIE Routing and Switching Written v5.0 exam will be replaced with ENCOR 350-401. After you pass ENCOR 350-401, you will earn the Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Core certification.

          *If you complete the entire CCIE Routing and Switching certification before February 24, then on February 24, you’ll automatically receive the new CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure v1.0 certification, which can be maintained as per new recertification guidelines, and you will also receive the Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Core certification.

            why CCNP  expired if u pass CCIE Written? 

            - CCIE written should renew all lover level certs


            how long ago did u pass CCIE written?   Old Policy that is now (still active) is that you must take a lab within 18 months of passing Written exam; then if u fail lab, you have 12, then 6 months.

            does it apply to you?


            Yes, you have 3 years to pass 'old" or new lab (after Feb 2020)

              This is the article I find confusing.

              *If you pass the current CCIE Routing and Switching Written v5.0 exam before February 24, you’ll  be eligible to take the new CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure v1.0 lab exam after February 24.

              *After February 24, the CCIE Routing and Switching Written v5.0 exam will be replaced with ENCOR 350-401. After you pass ENCOR 350-401, you will earn the Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Core certification.


              Taking these two statements together, does it mean that after Feb 24 by having passed the CCIE written already  I will then be a Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Core?

                As I started out saying, "My CCNP in route and switch expired last year but I have since passed the CCIE R&S written".  So my CCNP R&S expired, then I passed the CCIE R&S Written a few weeks later.

                I passed the CCIE Written around February or March of 2019.

                From what I have read I thought the old lab would no longer be available after Feb 2020.

                  Yes. You will get the Cisco specialization - Enterprise Core. Only you must take the new LAB CCIE

                    true, old lab would no longer be available after Feb 2020 but you can still take new lab until your Written expires;  default gap between lab takes is 30 days so you can have plenty opportunities to pass lab;


                    best of luck!

                      will then be a Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Core?

                      Yes. You will get the Cisco specialization - Enterprise Core

                       

                      No, I don;t think you get Cisco specialization - Enterprise Core,

                      you have CCIE written and 3 years to pass CCIE Lab , current version or new one after Feb 24th

                        Hi!

                         

                        *If you pass the current CCIE Routing and Switching Written v5.0 exam before February 24, you’ll  be eligible to take the new CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure v1.0 lab exam after February 24."

                        Anyway, the phrases of the Cisco page are ambiguous: You can take a CCIE lab with your current CCIE Written, because it is replacing the ENCOR 350-401 (specialization).
