I just want to make sure I have that correct. I guess with all of the new material they are adding to it they should just name it CCNA anyway LOL. I just want to make sure I understand it correctly.

    all the requirements say is a current CCENT cert, so you could actually take the retiring 640-822 ICND1 and get your CCENT and then move to Voice if you so desired.

    Juniper's levels are Associate - Specialist - Professional - Expect. Cisco's switched to a four-level model like Juniper, but gone with Technician - Associate - Professional - Expert. I agree this switch will cause some confusion. But not too much, since most hiring managers have either never heard or the CCENT or pretend they've never heard of the CCENT. ;)

    If you hold either any CCENT or CCNA R&S, you can go directly to CCNA Voice. I would consider staying within the "spirit" of the law, however, and either get a new-CCENT or CCNA before tackling a specialty track. Otherwise, your general networking knowledge may be less than needed to ace the specialty track, or weaker than hiring companies would expect for such an applicant.

    They are just improving their standard, that's all.
