Just pass 1 Pro level exam (not certification) that counts toward Pro-level certification to extend all Pro and Associate level certs for another 3 years;

 

Voice, Design, Wireless, or CCIE written

 

good luck

Hi 

 

I have done my CVOICE already so the next one would be 642-447 CIPT1? then the one after that should be 642-457 CIPT2, can I only write the one exam 642-447 CIPT1 will this then extend my certification for three years or must i write both part1 and part2?, Thank for the speedy response man really appreciate it.

Yes, just 1 exam; part 1 or part 2 within track, it doesn't matter

 

so when you took CVOICE, you got CCNP renewd for 3 years; now is about to expire?

problem might be Voice certification must be done within 3 years of passing 1st exam; so if u passed CVOICE 3 years ago, it does not  count;

 

if CVOICE expires by the time you pass all voice exams, you will have to re-take CVOICE;

there is no re-newing passed exam; all exams expire 3 years after; yo ucan only renew complete certifications;

This is the email I got from cisco last week it reads, as I explained earlier im completely lost here as I have not been studying for a while now please see below and advice me what is the quickest way to extend my certification as I really don't want to lose it :-( worked extremely hard.

 

Your CCNA Routing and Switching Cisco Certification will expire on 10/20/2013.
The demand for trained and qualified professionals continues to grow making your Cisco Certification more important than ever. Now is the time to recertify or move ahead to the next level of certification. If your certification expires, you will be required to repeat the entire certification exam process in order to regain your certification. Renewal requires certification holders to register and pass the appropriate certification exam(s) before the expiration date to meet the recertification requirements.
There are several recertification options. For information regarding recertification requirements visit the Cisco recertification website at www.cisco.com/go/recertification. For information on Cisco Certification exams such as how to register for an exam, visit www.cisco.com/go/certifications/exam.

Then got another one that states

and then the last one that states

just one Pro -level exam is needed for extension; so if u passed TVOICE , it should extend other CCNP and lower exams like CCNA automatically. check cisco cert progress site.

u passed CVOICE 3 years ago, it will expire and u will have to re-take CVOICE  withing 3 years of passing TVOCIE to get CCNP VOice (including other 3 exams)
