It's going to be the same lds, The same lab delivery system, You're going to be facing in the real thing, But please be aware that these labs are not open to the public. You have to be on the path to get your cca. In fact, You have to validate your current cca status, Such as entering your exam id for the written exam that you took and if you want some more information on the practice labs and you want to go out and check your ccI status and book a lab. You can go out to ciscocom, Go slash, Ccia practice labs and finally, Let's talk re-certification once you get your cca, You probably want to keep it. So how do we recertify? Well, Here's a pretty big update when I first got my ccna and for many years after that that certification and then my subsequent re-certifications.

T were good for two years. But now, When you get your ccna, Your ccie certification is valid for three years, But back when it was two years. If you let those two years lapse without re-certifying, You would be in a suspended year state where you wouldn't have to go back and retake everything. You could just recertify and you would get your status back as a cca.

There is no more suspended your state, So you need to be very cautious and make sure that you get your re-certification done before that three years is up and the recertification date used to begin on the anniversary date of when you first passed your lab. You can see on screen that I passed my first cca lab on august 3rd 2001 and for many years after that, When I would recertify it would extend that date that august 3rd date by two years. That's not the case anymore. Now, Whenever you recertify say it's june, The 1st your 3-year renewal period begins right.

Then cisco refers to that as their sliding window, Instead of using your anniversary date. Now, What are your options for recertifying many years ago? If you wanted to re-certify, You had to pass the written exam for any of the cca tracks. You'Ve got lots more options.

Now, Though, For example, You can earn 120 continuing education credits and if you want to see options for earning those credits, You can go to ceciscocom. For example, You can get credits by attending cisco live. Another option is to pass your ccde the design expert written exam. Another option is, You can pass any other expert level lab, But if you want to stay away from any more expert level testing, One other option is that you can pass three different professional level concentration exams here, We're talking about cisco's different ccnp tracks for each track.

There is a core exam and then you get to select from an additional concentration exam to earn your ccnp in that track. Well, If you pass three different professional level concentration exams, That's going to get you re-certified or is one other option. You can pass a ccnp core exam and one other professional level concentration exam, And those are three updates that I wanted you to know about. Cisco's, Ccie, Certification.
