I would like to clarify one doubt: The old BSCI exam is still valid to compose CCIP certification requirements?
For example, I have BSCI (642-901) and QoS (642-642) exams completed and I'm CCNP certified professional (valid through 2014). If I complete sucessfully BGP and MPLS exams, can I get CCIP Certification?
Hi Marcelo, Welcome to the CLN!
When did you pass your BSCI exam? Perhaps go and check the Certification Tracker, which will give you a good indication if your BSCI is still valid.
You can access the Certification Tracker here:
I stand to be corrected, but I believe your 3-year countdown would have started the day you passed the first exam towards the CCIP, so if you've passed the BSCI and QoS exams within the last 36 months, they should still be valid.
Cheers, and good luck
Thank you for your notes.
I have checked my BSCI exam date and actually it is not valid anymore (more than 3 years ago). My QoS exam is still valid. I must take 642-902 exam to reach CCIP Certification.
Thank you for your attention and support on this.
Thanks for chiming in, Sebastian!
If your BSCI is no longer valid (3 years from the date it is passed) then you will no longer be able to apply it towards the CCIP certification.
You mentioned that your 642-642 QOS exam is still valid so you can apply it towards the CCIP certification. The 642-642 QOS exam is valid for 3 years from the date it is passed.
In order to become certified in CCIP, you must complete the remaining exam requirements below before your QOS exam expires:
If you are unable to complete the remaining exam requirements before your QOS exam expires, you will need to re-take and pass the 642-642 QOS exam as well.

Best of luck on your CCIP pursuit!
