About CCNP and CCNA Validity

crsrivathsancrsrivathsan Registered Users Posts: 1 ■□□□□□□□□□

My CCNA certification ends on January 2013, i dint try to attempt CCNP all these days, but now i feel like giving it since my CCNA will be having no value after this,
Is is necessary to complete all 3 (SWITCH,ROUTE and T-SHOOT) before the CCNA expiry(jan 2013) date or just any one is enough so that i can take rest two exams after the expiry date??
It would be really helpful for me if i get an answer for this question.
Thanks in advance.

    • Pass the current ICND2 exam, or
    • Pass the current CCNA exam, or
    • Pass the current CCDA DESGN exam, or
    • Pass any current CCNA Concentration exam (wireless, or security, or voice, or SP Ops), or
    • Pass any current 642-XXX Professional level exam, or
    • Pass any current Cisco Specialist exam (excluding Sales Specialist exams or MeetingPlace Specialist exams, Implementing Cisco TelePresence Installations (ITI) exams, Cisco Leading Virtual Classroom Instruction exams, or any 650 online exams), or
    • Pass any current CCIE Written Exam, or
    • Pass the current CCDE Written Exam OR current CCDE Practical Exam, or
    • Pass the Cisco Certified Architect (CCAr) interview AND the CCAr board review to extend lower certifications

    As long as you pass 1 you should be good.
