    Re-certification

    Steven

      Im getting very confused by this new model coming up, my certs expire on May 17 2020, I have NP level certs for voice, sec and RS and DP and others. after Feb 24th, as I`m understanding I will be converted to all new certs, but what I dont understand is how to renew pass that point. From what I`m seeing I can take 80 credits from CE and this will re-certify all my certs ? or just one ? also what is actually 80 CE credits ? Do I have to go to class ? Getting pretty confusing now...


      Any help, especially about the way CE works/will work would be really appreciated TIA!

          Hi!

           

          About the new policy recertification

          https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/training-events/training-certifications/recertification-policy.html

           

          We must wait to February 24th, 2020 and maybe days after to see details about the Cisco recertification by Continuing Education only.

           

          Regards!

            80 credits will renew all your Pro and lower certs. but not sure if you have enough time since your cert expires on May 17 2020.

                          Hello,Steven! How are you doing ?

               

                         First of all, congratulations on your many certifications!!!!

               

                         Yes, i can do it !!!!!

                       Please, do the same for the others certifications : https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/training-events/training-certifications/certifications/professional/ccnp-migration-tools.h…

                         Here the great news!!!! Continuum Education program will  also value  for NP  !!!!!!

               

                        

                    4) How to get the credits

               

                        Here is something difficult to understand , many choices .  You can win credits in Cisco Lives, courses , webnars. And the credits can be used to have the certifications  renewed. But will have to pay an administrative fee...$300 ... It is just a substitution exam for credits... All information is in the link bellow.

               

              Cisco Continuing Education Program

               

               

                      Here you can see  a table with the courses and credits

               

              https://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en_us/training-events/le31/le46/cln/marketing/continuing-education-catalog-sample.pdf

               

                     They will change to attend NP certifications renew

               

                    Important !!!!!!

               

                    CE program is just to renew the Certifications!!!! If you have your certification expired will need to start again and take the exams, can´t use credits to certify.

               

                      Well, think it is all .

               

                     Cheers!

                Steven

                I get most of what is said from reading the new policy, but what I dont understand is what 80 credits would be. So I read the sample from the PDF, and lets say I see that currently(I know this will change probably) "Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE)" will give you 40 credits (half of whats needed for renew) does this mean I can take this course ANYWHERE ? Any format ? From any vendor ? I see globalknowledge course for that is 3600$! And how does Cisco becomes aware of this ? Can I take INE.com course or any other online courses, I`m really confused of this point ... And do I have until May 17th to complete the courses or if I complete some credits I can extend ?

                 

                Second part Im confused about, I have my CCNP R&S for a long time and I originally took all of the from 642-x exams, on Feb 24th, when it all converts, do I still get the SPECIALIZATIONS ?

                 

                @Ismael da Silva Mariano I think you might be a bit confused on your #1, I dont think our certs will automatically renew on 24th... with 3 years ...

                 

                Im debating if I should take any exam before Feb 24th to get everything I have renewed and then have 3 years to plan next move... or should I wait till 24th and start to do CE to renew, my problem is not actually understanding what is involved with the CE is whats scaring me.


                If I do take an exam now, can anyone recommend which exam I should take that would be attainable with about 1.5 months of study ?

                 

                Thank you in advance and thanks for all the replies !

                  I also want to mention that it seems the 300 fee will no longer be in effect post 24th...

                   

                  https://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en_us/training-events/training-certification-faqs.pdf

                   

                   

                  No more continuing education administrative fee, as of February 24, 2020.

                    Hi!

                     

                    The option of the people is renew their current certifications (for example CCNP R&S) and from February 24th, 2020 will migrate to the new certifications (for example CCNP Enterprise). About the "continuing education administrative fee" is only for CCIE candidates. Here is the current program:

                    Cisco Continuing Education Program

                     

                    For CCNA and CCNP certification, we must wait for details about Continuing Education for recertification. Or maybe our moderators can give us more information:

                      SO @ing_percy do you think I should renew before 24th ? OR should I do it after but before my certs expire on May 17th ?

                      • 8. Re: Re-certification
                        Ing_Percy

                        Well, it depends of you. Maybe the better option (in my opinion) is renew before February 24th, 2020 and after you can study the new books with calm for updating the knowledges without thinking in the day of expiration of your certs.

                         

                        Regards!

                          thank you for the input, really dont like my current situation... and no knowledge at all. Im thinking Im going to take TSHOOT before 24th and thats it, study for a month and go take it.

                            does this mean I can take this course ANYWHERE ? Any format ? From any vendor ? I see globalknowledge course for that is 3600$! And how does Cisco becomes aware of this ? Can I take INE.

                             

                            No, no, no and no,  Based on my experience:

                            there will be a site with list of courses and credits and starting dates.  Couple years ago I looked into this as right now you can use credits to renew your CCIE.  It is not easy to get 80 credits. Some courses are for 12 credits only; those are long ones, others and shorter ones are  for 3-4 credits.

                             

                            Those courses are by Cisco -led instructors and presenters (during annual Cisco Live). No INE or other companies; although instructors may be "borrowed"

                             

                            You must finish all and get X amount of credits before your cert expiration date; so  if you taking course and will finish after May 17th, you will loose your cert.

                            my understanding is that 642-x exams do not count into Migration exam scheme;  But if you are current CCNP, you will get new CCNP.

                             

                            if I find a link with courses/credits (it may be under constructions) I will reply with it. Currently Learning Credits counts towards CCIE only !

                            Pretty sure there are no courses available right now as they getting ready for migration from old to new.

                                          See the migration tool to see where you will go on february 24. If any of your certifications will retire before feb 24 , no need to take exams .
