    CCNA recertification


    by somchai ·

    My CCNA status is to expire soon. I plan to get the CCNP certification. However, my CCNA status may be expired before I finish the whole CCNP track.

    Can I recertify the CCNA status by passing a single exam in CCNP track?

      According to Cisco, taking and passing any new exam at the Professional level, will recertify you at the Associate level.

      CCNA status is independant of the CCNP status. You can still get your CCNP and not have a CCNA and vice versa.

        I don’t think so…

        Any upgraded exam will refresh your CCNA. Go to to read about it. You should know this if you’re a CCNA.

        The CCNP certification requires a valid CCNA certification. I doubt a lapsed CCNA certification is considered valid, but don’t quote me on it.

        I think you’ll find that you need to have current CCNA Status to earn the CCNP.
