Cisco Recertification Policy

Cisco Recertification requirements

All certifications have a three-year recertification deadline. Certified individuals will be able to recertify by either taking exams, earning Continuing Education credits or a mix of both. Cisco Continuing Education activities include things like completing online training courses, completing instructor-led training courses and more.

How to get Cisco recertified

To recertify certification holders have the following options:

  • Register for and pass the appropriate Cisco recertification exam(s)
  • Recertify by completing continuing education activities and earning credits within those three years.
  • Recertify by advancing to the next level of certifications.

Certification must be met prior to the certification expiration date. Individuals with expired certification(s) must repeat the entire certification exam process in order to regain their certification(s) status.
