Recertification  |   Exam Information  |   Policies  |   Tools


Recertification

Recertification is an important indicator to  IT professionals and their employers, ensuring that the certification  holder has kept up with current trends in networking technology.  Valid  certifications may be renewed indefinitely, but without timely renewal,  certifications expire or become inactive. To keep certifications current, individuals should recertify by advancing to the next level of  certification or passing the designated recertification exam(s).

Recertification Renewal Timeframes

  • Entry, Associate and Professional level certifications are valid for three years.
  • All CCIE certifications are valid for two years and must be recertified by the deadline to remain on active status.
  • Specialist certifications are valid for two years  and can be renewed by retaking all exams required for the  certification.Cisco Sales Expert (CSE) designations are valid for two  years and must be recertified regardless of other certifications you  have achieved, are currently pursuing or are in the process of  recertifying.

How to Recertify

Renewal requires certification holders to  register for and pass the appropriate Cisco recertification exam(s). In  order to recertify, exam requirements must be met prior to the  certification expiration date.  Individuals with an expired certification(s) must repeat the entire certification exam process in  order to regain their certification(s). Visit the Cisco Career Certifications Tracking System to check the status of your certification(s).

When you use a higher Level of certification to recertify your  certification, your current certification will match the expiration of  the higher certification (if you have one year left on your CCNA  certification and you pass the current CCDE, both your CCDE and your  CCNA certification will expire two years from the date you passed the  CCDE). All certification expirations will match to the latest  certification achieved.
