    Valid CCNP R&S for Next Level CCIE Enterprise

    Cihan

      Hello,

       

      As you know, Cisco replaced its certification path and seems that CCNP Enterprise and CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure have same ENCOR 300-401 exam as a pre-request. I have currently valid CCNP R&S Certification and it will be still valid after the 24 Feb 2020. In the CCNP R&S Migration Tool, I see that after the 24 Feb 2020 my certification will be replaced with CCNP Enterprise Core.

       

      My question is; Can I attempt a CCIE Lab after 24 Feb 2020 without ENCOR 300-401 exam?

       

      Thank you!

          No, I think you need that new exam; or you ahve passed current CCIE Written version 5.1 and you are still within lab-taking policy time frame.

              Hi Cihan,

               

              If you have a CCNP R&S certification that will still be valid after February 24, 2020, you will get the CCNP Enterprise certification AND two additional certifications: Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Core + Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Advanced Infrastructure Implementation.

               

              Please note that having the Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Core will allow you to take the CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure lab exam after February 24, 2020...and if you pass the lab, you will be certified in CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure.

               

              I hope this helps!

                Migration from old CCNP to new CCNP converts your cert so that you do not loose out on your work already done. 

                But

                 

                Current CCNP and CCIE program rules, you can not register for CCIE Lab with CCNP cert.  you must have Written exam passed.

                New way is to take ENCOR 300-401 in order to register for new lab.  as an extra bonus the same exam, ENCOR, counts as 1 of 2 exams needed for new CCNP. 

                 

                In my opinion,

                Just because you "got" ENCOR exam as part of CCNP migration, It does not mean that u "earn" ability to register for the CCIE lab.  You have not actually taken and passed ENCOR exam, you got it from migration.  that's why I said "no" above.

                    Hi,

                    I want to join to discussion. But I want to ask what if I Pass CCNP Switch exam in august 2017 and after that I pass, TSHOOT in december 2017 and now in march 2019 SENSS from Security track.

                    When I look at Cisco certyficatoin progres I see CCNP R&S valit to march 2022 so to which date I will have valid credential to pass CCIE LAB? August 2020 or March 2022?

                     

                     

                    Best regards

                    Darek

                      Hi!

                       

                      I supposed when you have already passed ROUTE exam before you passed SWITCH and TSHOOT exam, for that reason, you get the CCNP R&S certification from december 2017. Now, in that moment, your CCNP R&S was valid until december 2020

                       

                      But, when you took and passed the SENSS exam (professional exam) in march 2019, you have recertified the CCNP R&S and for that reason, it will be valid until march 2022.

                       

                      After of the migration from February 24th, 2020, your CCNP R&S will CCNP Enterprise and two additional certifications: Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Core + Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Advanced Infrastructure Implementation. For that, reason, you are enabled to take the new CCIE Lab until march 2022

                       

                      Regards!
