Routing and Switching Recertification

CCT Routing and Switching certifications are valid for three years. To recertify, pass ONE of the following exams before the certification expiration date:

  • Pass the current CCT RSTECH exam, or
  • Pass the current ICND1 exam AND current ICND2 exam, or
  • Pass the current CCNA Composite exam, or
  • Pass the current DCICN exam and DCICT exam, or
  • Pass the current SPNGN1 exam and SPNGN2 exam, or
  • Pass the current CCDA exam, or
  • Pass any current CCNA Concentration exam, or
  • Pass any current 642-XXX professional level exam, or
  • Pass any current Cisco Specialist exam (excluding Sales Specialist exams or MeetingPlace Specialist exams or Implementing Cisco TelePresence Installations [ITI] exams), or
  • Pass any current CCIE Written Exam, or
  • Pass the current CCDE Written Exam, or current CCDE Practical Exam, or
  • Pass the Cisco Certified Architect (CCAr) interview AND the CCAr board review to extend lower certifications

When using a higher level of certification to extend other certifications, the expiration date of other certifications will extend to the expiration date of the higher certification (i.e.: If you have one year left on your CCNA certification and you earn a CCIE certification (which has a two-year certification life) then both your CCIE certification and your CCNA certification will expire two years from the date you achieved the CCIE certification).
