When you use a higher Level of certification to recertify your  certification, your current certification will match the expiration of  the higher certification (if you have one year left on your CCNA  certification and you pass the current CCDE, both your CCDE and your  CCNA certification will expire two years from the date you passed the  CCDE). All certification expirations will match to the latest  certification achieved.
