No, my date shows that CCIE expires 3 years from the date of passing lab. so it includes 3 years. see Updated, expires dates.
so it does already include suspension of 1 year (2+1)
if u re-certify CCIE this year, you get 3 more years (from passing the lab , not from date of actual passing exam), so it will be 2022. they count from the Privilege date.
this behavior of counting expiration date from passing lab for renewing CCIE will stop after Feb 24th.
so, if your CCIE certs expire circa mid 2021, you will gain 1 year more- 2022. My suggestion is wait for Feb 24th, check Cert Progress for any changes, then renew the CCIE certs. there are few new ways of doing it (after Feb 24th) see https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/training-events/training-certifications/recertification-policy.html
how recently have u checked your certs on cert tracking site?
Hey Martin, thank you for your enlightenment on this.
Yes, I've checked my certs very recently < 24hours ago at Cisco's Certification Tracking System. All of them are aligned to expire at the same date i.e. mid 2021.
Based on what you've explained, does it also indirectly mean that I won't get the full 3 years if I renew anytime this year. I am only getting 1 year more instead what it is currently?
If I renew in 2020, I get 2 years instead of 3? Only if I renew on 2021, I will get a full 3 year extension?
it should be 3 years, all certs are valid for 3 years; only exception is the CCIE which has suspension of 1 year. CIsco will give a warning after 2 years and put you in suspension mode for 1 year. Then, they will give u 1 year to update CCIE (renew it by passing Written or new lab). if u do not do renew CCIE within of 3 years, it expires and you have to take Written and Lab again.
check your Updated, Expiration dates in Cert tracker. if u do not recall when u passed exam. you should click on to Cert Progress on left side column after login. then your table should show you Updated, Expiration dates;
renew now or later, you will get new 3 years (2+1 before changed; 3 years after Feb 23rd- new revision of program removes suspension year)
"and if I retake my CCIE written in Jan 2020, I get 4 years on Feb 24th" - Hmm, I stink at math, so let me try to say it like this:
"Three years from the exam pass date"
Does that make sense? So if you renew in Jan, as of 2/24/20, the expiry date will extend by one year from the original Jan pass date.
