CCNP completion time

Just need to find out maximum allowed time to complete 3 exams to achieve CCNP.
Do I need complete all three exams within 3 years to achieve CCNP qualification.
I have completed CCNP switch in September 2016 and getting ready for Route. Do I required to complete other two exam before September this year to get CCNP.
If this has been answered before please apologise me.

kind regards,

@ReneMolenaar - do you know how or where I can get information?
thanks in advance

Hello Pushpika

You must complete all three exams within a three year period. For example, if you completed SWITCH in September of 2016, then you must complete both ROUTE and TSHOOT before September 2019. Otherwise the SWITCH exam you took will no longer be valid, and must be taken again.

All of this can be confirmed if you go into Cisco’s certification tracking system. From here you can see all your certifications and when exams expire. If you don’t have an account, ask your Cisco examination centre about how you can obtain one. It will give you all the information you need.

I hope this has been helpful!
