Renew your certifications!

Cisco offers a variety of options for recertification through the Continuing Education Program. In addition to the traditional exams, already Cisco-certified IT professionals can renew their certification by choosing one of many continuing education options that will maintain, enhance, or deepen your skill set.


How to renew your certification:

To recertify through the Continuing Education Program, the following steps should be taken:

  • Enrollment in the program by logging into the Continuing Education Portal.
  • Agreeing to the Continuing Education Terms and Conditions as part of the enrollment process.
  • Complete your chosen recertification pathway, which may include earning a specified number of CE-Credits from pre-approved continuing education courses.
  • Submit your CE-Credits for the completed courses for recognition through the Continuing Education Portal within 90 days.
  • Track your progress in the Certification Tracking System (except CCIE/CCDE).
  • CCIE/CCDE recertification status can be tracked via the CCIE Tracker.
  • Recertification is automatically processed when criteria are met/approved
  • Candidates must have active certification (from the date of certification acquisition to the date of certification/re-certification expiration) to receive credit

The Cisco recertification policy applies.
