I already have the CCNA Voice (640-460). I understand the CCNA Voice is a pre-requisite for the CCNA Video. Do i still have to sit for the 640-461?
I believe that in Cisco, you only take one exam once until it is expired. So if you already have given 640-461 (like me), you wouldn't have to clear it again until and unless it is expired. Getting CCNA Video might renew CCNA Voice too and extend the expiry date.
I wanted to confirm that you are correct, passing the CCNA Video certification will extend a previously attained CCNA Voice certification.
For more information, please go to the CCNA Voice recertification page: http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/certifications/associate/ccna_voice/recert.html:
Thanks Mubashshir /Kay for your response.
Like Elter stated. the clarification i actually need is whether the 640-460 is valid for the CCNA video or if i have to upgrade to the 640-461.
I know they are both CCNA Voice but one is a newer flavor yes??
I consulted with my colleagues (Matt Sauders, CCNA Voice Community Manager and Rigo, Community Moderator) and they shared some valuable information that is important for all to consider:
Braindump material is not allowed and users cannot post or share this material on the Cisco Learning Network. In addition, using braindump material can put a candidate’s Cisco Certifications at risk.
We encourage candidates to develop their skills and knowledge by using only reputable training materials and/or train with a Cisco Learning Partner. For recommended training and additional resources, you can take a look at the CCNA Video Overview and Study/Learn pages here: https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/community/certifications/ccna_video
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to post.
Related, I originally passed CCVP back in the day, before CCNA Voice existed or the ICOM exam.
CCVP "grandfathered" me into a CCNP Voice.
I feel like if you have CCNP Voice, and pass the 200-001 exam, you should be granted CCNA Video even without ICOM exam, since you already have CCNP Voice.
I need a clarification on this:
Currently I have a valid CCNA Voice and CCNP Voice but I did not take 640-461 to achieve the CCNA Voice. To get CCNA Video, do I need to sit for 640-461 because it was not available as at that time?
I opened a case in PRT and this was the response:
With regards to your query, please be informed that in order to be certified for CCNA Video, the following exams are needed: 200-001 and 640-461 Please review the requirements on the following site:
In my opinion, the 640-460 could be included as an "OR" (640-460 o r640-461) only IF approved before the 640-461 ICOMM launch date. This could increase the number of certifications in market...
Currently, the only way to achieve the CCNA Video Certification would be to take and pass the 200-001 VIVND and 640-461 ICOMM exams.
Please review CCNA Video FAQs here: http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le31/le46/cln/pdf/Video_Certification_FAQv2.pdf.
The information your received is correct. To date, you will need to successfully take and pass both the 200-001 VIVND and 640-461 ICOMM exams to earn the CCNA Video Certification.
Rigo Villa, our CLN Community Moderator, provided valuable information related to your CCNA Video Equivalency query. Please follow here: https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/thread/50974?tstart=0.
CCNA 640--802 is a prereq for virtually every certification cisco has.
From the response Kay gave, you also need the 640-461 together with the 200-001 even if you already have the 640-460.
