The biggest change in this certification reform is not CCNA, nor CCNP, but CCIE.
CCDE and CCAr certifications same as before
Difference 1: The original CCIE certification is to pass the corresponding CCIE written test, and then pass CCIE Lab exam. After February 24, 2020, the CCIE written test becomes the Core Exam in the CCNP certification, which means that when you hesitate to test CCIE or CCNP You can test Core Exam first. If you pass a Cisco 300-535 Dumps, you are CCNP. If you pass a core exam + the Lab exam, congratulations, you become CCIE. Moreover CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure and CCIE Enterprise Wireless share same core exam.
Difference 2: CCIE R&S is revised not only on name but exam topics. Such as: SD-Access, SD-WAN, Automation and Programmability
For candidates with CCIE RS certification or prepare for Cisco 300-701 Dumps, you might have doubt on your certification, plz look at recertification part.
Difference 4: The Lab exam format also change. There are two lab exam formats in original exam.
Such as CCIE Lab exam
How about the recertification?
On February 24, 2020, the new CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure v1.0 certification will replace the current CCIE Routing and Switching v5.0 certification.
If you have started working toward the current CCIE Routing and Switching certification, keep going. In the new program, you’ll receive credit for work you’ve completed in the current program.
If you pass the current CCIE Routing and Switching Written v5.0 exam before February 24, you’ll be eligible to take the new CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure v1.0 lab exam after February 24.
After February 24, the CCIE Routing and Switching Written v5.0 exam will be replaced with ENCOR 300-401. After you pass Cisco 300-515 Dumps, you will earn the Cisco Certified Specialist – Enterprise Core certification.
If you complete the entire CCIE Routing and Switching certification before February 24, then on February 24, you’ll automatically receive the new CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure v1.0 certification, which can be maintained as per new recertification guidelines, and you will also receive the Cisco Certified Specialist – Enterprise Core certification.
