Re-Certifying and taking new exams

    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!?!
    Certifications: ECDL, Does that Count!?!

    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.
