Tes, our certificates says their validity, but not the ones of the other company, so my question abolir if this applies to all certificates regardless of their date of issue.You can use the Search to check validity of certificate: http://www.mikrotik.com/certificate_search.php
The certificate itself says that it's valid "3 years since issue".
this applies to all certificates
Yes. You must re-take the exam with a certified trainer (not online). This ensures the person is informed about all the new features we have made in the last 3 years.This gives me a curious thought.
Once the cert expires in 3 years, what is the renewal process? Re-do the entire certification again?
i have the same thinking aobut this topicI know this post is a quite old... Anyway I have a doubt. I own Cisco certifications too... In Cisco when you give an specific exam or a higher level exam, automatically this renew the lower certification too... I mean, if Mikrotik works in the Cisco way, if I have MTCNA certification and I wann renew it, so I give MTCRE exam and it gives me 3 years of MTCRE and 3 more years of MTCNA. My question is, does Mikrotik work like Cisco?
Waiting for the answer,
Normis point is still valid though. In 3 years a lot o new features can be launched, how can you classify the 3 days as a waste if you are a) learning about the new features to a high level (such as MTCINE) and if b) your job depends on you having the cert, 3 days is nothing when you have another 362 to make money.Folks,
I know this is very old thread, but anyways this question is still valid.
Could you please point me to official document that clearly says what options are available to renew/recertify Associate and Engineer-level certs?
I hold certificates from Cisco, Juniper and others and ALL of them allow to recertify by advancing to the next level of certification. It does make sense when you re-certify MTCNA by passing MTCRE and then update all of them by getting MTCINE. To renew MTCINE I would just pass written exam instead of finding a place to go and sit there for 3 days, waste ~$1K to get a chance to pass 50 min test...
