    I am currently getting ready to renew my CCNA. I know that I can take a CCNA concentration exam, specialty exam (minus sales) or the ICND2 exam.

    Here is my question. If I let my current CCNA expire will I have to retake both ICND1 and ICND2 or just the ICND2 exam? Thanks.

    To renew your CCNA, you can pass one of the following:

    ICND2
    CCNA
    any professional-level exam (those starting with a 642)
    a CCIE written exam

    If you let your CCNA expire, you'll have to take everything all over again from scratch: either the ICND1 + ICND2 or the CCNA.

    Hi BosonMichael,

    Not disputing what you are saying but can you tell me where you read this because if this is the case then the Cisco site is a little misleading:

    http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/le2/le0/le9/learning_certification_type_home.html

    "CCNA certifications are valid for three years. To recertify, either pass the current CCNA exam, or pass the ICND2 exam, or pass any 642 professional level or Cisco Specialist exam (excluding Sales Specialist exams), or pass a current CCIE written exam".

    The above quote to me reads as though even after three years when your certificate has expired all you have to take is ICND 2 (not both 1 & 2).
