Renewing my certifications?

So my 3 comptia certs expire next year in August, I will be earning my ccna this weekend and ccna security around february next year.

When i use these to renew my certifications will they renew starting at the date that i earned my last certification? will it renew for 3 full years? Do I have to pay the fees for each year that i renew for or how does that work?

    You have to pay the dues under the CEU section at this site: Then once you paid at 100% I think it's $49 per year. Then you can submit your CEUs. For example, the CCNA Security (50 CEUs) will renew your Security+ 3 years from the date you passed your CCNA Security. CCNA R&S will give you 20 CEUs towards your A+

    What type of work do you currently do? What are you aiming for next?

    I wouldn't pay to keep CompTIA certs from expiring when moving on to Cisco.

    If you don't mind paying as stated above. Another higher CompTIA cert will keep the lower ones active. Other certs will renew as well.

    I work with a wide variety of technologies currently, firewalls, Windows servers, Pos systems, I'm all over the place. I plan on staying certified for at least the next 3 years with my Compia certs, after that I figure they won't be so relevant with my experience level at the time.

    so i will need to pay $150 for all 3 years to stay certified?

    ^ You will need to pay $150 just to pay off the 3 year CEU dues. Once you do that, you will have to take another approved list of exams in order to recert the A+, N+, and S+, such as the CASP, etc. CCNA Security will renew your S+ Refer to this site and scroll to the bottom:

    So I've passed my CCNA: Security exam and will renew my 3 comptia certs with this soon. But that brings up another question, lets say in a few years i pass another certification such as the CCNP: R&S. This will renew my CCNA:Security, will the renewed CCNA: security count as CE credits for comptia?
