My CCVP will expire soon, will passing one of the Cisco Specialist 642 exams recertify this?
I am taking the 642-583 (SSSE) Security Solutions for Systems Engineers soon, this would be an added bonus if it does.
Hi Norm trees,
To recertify your CCNP Voice certification (formerly known as CCVP) you must pass a current professional level 642-XXX exam before your certification expires.
Unfortunately, passing the 642-583 SSSE exam will not satisfy the requirement to recertify a valid CCNP Voice certification because it is not a 642-XXX professional level exam.
Any 642 prefix exam under a professional level certification track such as CCDP, CCIP, CCNP Wireless, etc. is considered a professional level exam. Please note that not all 642 prefix exams are professional level because they may not be part of the professional level curriculum, such as the 642-583 SSSE exam.

Hope this helps.
