Questions Asked During the Webinar:

  • How early before the deadline do you recommend we complete our CE credits?
    • The earlier the better, of course. You need to complete the CE training before the expiration date to have them qualify. To be safe, I’d suggest doing it at least a week before the expiration date.
  • If I take one course, like ENCOR, when will these credits expire?
    • Earned CE credits are valid for 3 years from the date the activity was completed.
  • I have about 1 year until my certification expires. Is that too early to recertify?
    • It’s never too early to get started, especially if you need to earn a large chunk of credits.
  • For those of us trying to take our CCNA exams for the first time, how can you help us with free online training and practice exams?
  • Where can I sign up for recommended continuing education courses?
  • Is it possible to recertify a CCNP certification purely by accumulating enough CE credits and without taking an exam?
    • Yes!
