Certification Query

I hold a CCNA certificate that will expire on June 4 2013. I plan to write CCIE Voice Written before that. My question is - will I be eligible to write CCNA Voice / CVP papers after I clear CCIE Voice Wrtitten? Or do I need to re take CCNA again?

Hi Rajnath,

Here you go

CCNA Routing and Switching certifications are valid for three  years. To recertify, pass ONE of the following before the certification  expiration date:

  • Pass the current ICND2 exam, or
  • Pass any current Associate-level exam except for ICND1 exam, 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

When using a higher level of certification to extend other  certifications, the expiration date of other certifications will extend  to the expiration date of the higher certification (i.e.: If you have  one year left on your CCNA Routing and Switching certification and you  earn a CCIE certification (which has a two-year certification life) then  both your CCIE certification and your CCNA Routing and Switching  certification will expire two years from the date you achieved the CCIE  certification).
