    Hi All,

    Quick question, I know obviously with the Cisco certs that you have to re-sit to keep them current and so forth, but if I was to complete a normal CCNA, and then say 2 years later complete a CCDA or a CCNA Security or something similar, do they re-certify you on the standard CCNA? Or do you still have to re-sit.

    The only reason I ask is I would like to do a few CCNA's, but i'd end up having to re-certify a LOT if I did that!?!

    I'm sure someone else can confirm, but I believe one higher exam re-certifies all lower level exams on cisco tracks.

    Ah ok, is there a time limit on it? ie if I did 2 or 3 CCNA level certs then moved on to CCNP but my original cert was 5 years old and one of my second certs was say 3 1/2 year old then they would still all become re-certified?

    As long as you don't let the cert expire before passing an upgraded one then you should be recertified.

    My CCNA Wireless renewed my CCENT and my CCNA. So to answer your question, yes :)
