          One Composite new CCNA exam will have basic knowledge of Security, Wireless, and Voice , plus Routing and Switching topics.

          see CCNA exam topics.

           

          you can see new CCNA part 1 book which comes with Wireless chapter; other topics will be in part 2 of new book

            Hi!

             

            For example: If you have CCNA Security before February 24, 2020 and the migration is done from this date, then you will receive the new CCNA certification plus a training badge.

            Check: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/training-events/training-certifications/certifications/associate/ccna-security.html


            About "badges" and "Specializations", check this discussion in CLN

            Badges vs. Specialization

             

            Regards!

                Hi!

                 

                From February 24th, 2020, There are no pre-requisites for different levels of certification (associate, professional, expert)

                Also, you can get Cisco Specialization for each professional exam passed.

                 

                Regards!

                  CCNP security is changing on Feb 24th; you may want to take a look at that;

                  see CCNP Security Certification and Training Program

                   

                  To earn CCNP Security, you pass two exams: a core exam and a security concentration exam of your choice.

                  • The core exam, Implementing and Operating Cisco Security Core Technologies (SCOR 350-701), focuses on your knowledge of security infrastructure.
                    • You can prepare for this exam by taking the training course, Implementing and Operating Cisco Security Core Technologies (SCOR).
                    • The core exam is also the qualifying exam for the CCIE Security certification. Passing this exam helps toward earning both of these certifications.
                  • Concentration exams focus on emerging and industry-specific topics. You can prepare for concentration exams by taking their corresponding Cisco training courses. Choose your CCNP Security concentration exam from these options:
                    • Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower (SNCF 300-710)
                    • Implementing and Configuring Cisco Identity Services Engine (SISE 300-715)
                    • Securing Email with Cisco Email Security Appliance (SESA 300-720)
                    • Securing the Web with Cisco Web Security Appliance (SWSA 300-725)
                    • Implementing Secure Solutions with Virtual Private Networks (SVPN 300-730)
                    • Automating and Programming Cisco Security Solutions (SAUTO 300-735)

                    CCIE Security will change ;

                    To earn CCIE Security, you pass two exams: a qualifying exam and hands-on lab exam.

                    • First, take the qualifying exam, Implementing and Operating Cisco Security Core Technologies (SCOR 350-701), which focuses on your knowledge of security infrastructure.
                      • You can prepare for this exam by taking the training course, Implementing and Operating Cisco Security Core Technologies (SCOR).
                      • The qualifying exam earns a Specialist certification, so you get recognized for your accomplishments along the way.
                    • Second, take the 8-hour, hands-on lab exam, CCIE Security v6.0. This exam covers the end-to-end lifecycle of complex security solutions and technologies, from designing though deploying, operating and optimizing.

                      CCIE level is very very hard;  I would recommend CCNP security with several tracks or specializations as they call it; then think about CCIE level.

                      learning for expert level wuill take time and commitment; it may take 2-3 years.  note that CCIE may change in another 3 years - although unlikely.
