Cisco has reshuffled the CCVP exam and made CCNP Voice exam 8.0. Following are the details...

CCNP Voice Certification (Formerly known as CCVP)

Posted Image
Cisco Certified Network Professional CCNP Voice validates advance knowledge and skills required to integrate into underlying network architectures. Furthermore, this certification validates a robust set of skills in implementing, operating, configuring, and troubleshooting a converged IP network. With a CCNP Voice certification, a network professional can create a collaboration solution that is transparent, scalable, and manageable. The CCNP Voice curriculum  focuses on Cisco Unified Communications Manager (formerly Unified CallManager), quality of service (QoS), gateways, gatekeepers, IP phones, voice applications, and utilities on Cisco routers and Cisco Catalyst switches. Additionally, the integration and troubleshooting of Cisco Unified Communications applications are now covered in the CCNP Voice, specifically the Cisco Unity Connection and Cisco Unified Presence applications.

CCVP Recertification

Cisco professional level certifications (CCNP, CCNP Security, CCSP, CCVP, CCNP Wireless, CCIP, CCNP SP Operations, CCDP) are valid for three years. To recertify, pass any 642-XXX exam that is part of the professional level curriculum, or any CCIE written or lab exam, or any CCDE written or practical exam, or the Architect interview AND the Architect board review before the certification expiration date.

When recertifying your CCNP Voice on or after Tuesday, October 19, 2010, candidates may use any professional level 642-XXX exam to recertify as a CCNP Voice (functionally equivalent to the CCVP).

Achieving or recertifying any of the certifications above automatically extends your active Associate and Professional level certification(s) up to the point of expiration of the last certification achieved. For more information, access the Cisco About Recertification page.
