Hi All,

Please, could you tell me which course l need to pass to retain my ECS certificate and which courses l need to increase that to the ECE Level.

I was doing ExtremeEOS Switching & Routing (ECS Level)  about 2 years ago (cert still valid).

There are 4 part of ECE, Wired, Wireless, Networking, Access control. You have to passing a combination of technology course exams, but some of them were duplicated. Detail information in below link

HI Steve,

Thanks for the link. l saw it before but still, it's confusing for me (but getting clearer now). Looking on teh picture below:


Exper level it's just combination of the specialist level certs, am l right?
If I will pass any other cert, let's say advanced routing, my ExtremeEOS Switching & Routing (ECS) will be extended automatically. Is it right? 
The last question, for Expert wired, do l need both EOS and XOS or it can be just one plus advanced routing and EMC certs.

Regards,
Mykhaylo

Yes you are right. For the last question, there is a exam named: Switching and Routing Boot Camp (EXOS and EOS), if you pass it, then you get both EOS and XOS.

Hi,
If you pass the Advanced Routing it will not extend the ExtremeEOS Switching and Routing  or ExtremeXOS Switching and Routing because the materials are different.

Hi, 

To get ECE (Extreme Certified Expert) Certification, you need to get ECE Wired + ECE Wireless + ECE Networking + ECS Access Control.


ECE Wired includes courses: Switching and Routing Boot Camp (EXOS and EOS), Advanced Routing, and Extreme Management Center
ECE Wireless includes courses: Extreme Wireless, Extreme Management Center, and Extreme Access Control
ECE Networking includes courses: Switching and Routing Boot Camp (EXOS and EOS), Extreme Management Center, and Extreme Wireless
ECE Access Control includes courses: Extreme Management Center, Extreme Policy, and Extreme Access Control


In other words, if you want to get ECE Certification, you must pass the following "6" course:
Switching and Routing Boot Camp (EXOS and EOS) + Avanced Routing + Extreme Management Center + Extreme Wireless + Extreme Access Control + Extreme Policy

For example, if you pass Switching and Routing Boot Camp (EXOS and EOS), Advanced Routing, and Extreme Management Center, you will ONLY get ECE Wired, not ECE Certification.

Hi All,

Ok thanks. Now it is clear. My last question is if I pass any other ECS level cert (e.g Wireless) will my existing cert(s) expiration time going to be extended automatically? I guess answer is YES)

Hi Mykhaylo,

As Suzanne has mentioned above, the existing certificaions won't be extended automatically as they are different certification each other.

In other words, your EOS switching and Routing certification won't be extended automatically even if you passed the ECS wireless as they are different certifications.
The only way to extend your EOS switching and routing certification is to re-certify it before expiration.

David

Hi David/ Suzanne,

Thanks, and it is finally clear. What will happen if I take an exam after the certificate has expired?

Thanks,

Hi Mykhaylo,

If you passed the exam, then you will get the certification again from the date.
Otherwise, nothing but you just failed to get the certification... That's all.

BR,
David
