As the CCIE program continues to grow and develop Learning@Cisco recognizes that the individuals certified within the program are also growing and developing. To recognize the long term members of this program a new level of involvement has been created - CCIE Emeritus.
Long term CCIE's who have moved out of the "day to day" technical work but would like to stay involved in the program serving as ambassadors to current and future CCIE's.
At the 10 year anniversary Cisco will send an email informing the CCIE of potential eligibility for Emeritus. CCIE's desiring to join the Emeritus program must complete an application in the CCIE lab scheduler under the "Purchase Emeritus" tab.
Approval is subject to Cisco's sole discretion. Emeritus status is granted for one year from your expiration date. Emeritus CCIE's must reapply and pay each year to maintain status. Reapplication is available 3 months prior to the current Emeritus expiration date. Please note - you are responsible for keeping track of your yearly application date and to reapply as needed.
Note: ALL customers are encouraged to update the profile and provide the most current contact information. Failure to receive an informational email does not provide for a policy exception. It is up to each certified individual to ensure their profile has the most current information.
Note: Access into the CCIE profile requires a CSCO ID. Login with Cisco.com User ID and Password. For the first time login, you will need to enter either CSCO ID or Registration ID.
CCIEs who recertified to maintain their CCIE status for 10 years and are currently in the inactive status can use the following exception criteria to become eligible to participate in the CCIE Emeritus program:
