    Re: Question regards CCIP retirement.

    When did you pass BSCI and QOS? Is your CCNA valid? Are you able to pass BGP+MPLS before October?

    Thanks Rigo for these clear guidelines.

     

    Since I did a CCIP re-cert last month (I've been CCIP for many years now), who can assure me that the requirements to pass the 642-887 SPCORE and 642-889 SPEDGE exams will still be applicable in say 2.5 years time? I don't mean exam updates - I think those can always change. What I mean is that a sudden Cisco policy change can come along, and whoosh, I could be forced with having to take any number of exams.  That wouldn't be fair.

     

    Another point: I recertified with the CCDP ARCH exam - I was looking at taking the remaining qualifying CCDP exams, but I'm maybe not so motivated now.  How long will it be until CCDP gets retired? Will that be assimilated into a CCNP Track as well?  I think there was already one reference to seeing something somilar happen to the CCSP. I see similarties...

     

    Thanks for mentioning any guarantees which Cisco can offer...

    Re: Question regards CCIP retirement.

    Hi Rigo,

     

    Luckily for me I managed to keep my schedule and I almost completed the CCIP track, but an online friend (very prepared) realised too late about the CCIP retirement.

     

    Can you please confirm that (before the end of Oct) with QoS (which is his cup of tea) or ROUTE, he would be enrolled for the CCNP SP as the tool states?

     

    Thank you

    Not sure what you mean by enrolled here.

     

    If your friend has a CCNA and has passed any of CCIP exams, that will act as a prerequsite for CCNP SP, and he will not have to attain CCNA SP.

    Re: Question regards CCIP retirement.

    Hi Alexcitto,

     

    As Sey mentioned, if your friend has a valid CCNA Certification and passed a minimum of 1 CCIP exam (such as QOS or ROUTE) then this will fulfill the pre-requisite requirement for the CCNP Service Provider.

     

    In addition, the 642-902 ROUTE exam will give credit towards the SPROUTE exam for the CCNP Service Provider exam requirements.

     

    The CCIP-CCNP Service Provider Migration Tool will help determine what exams are needed to achieve the CCNP Service Provider Certification. You may also want to take a look at the CCNP Service Provider Syllabus page for detailed information about the requirements.

     

    Regards,

    Rigo
