How long does CCNP certification last?

It's difficult to keep up-to-date on recertification, but here, our Cisco Training expert, David Minutella, lets us know how long our CCNP certification lasts.

I have passed the BSCI 642-801 on September 15. Do I need to take any other exam to re-certify my CCNP?
Cisco has cut us a break as far as recertification goes for the professional levels exams. Essentially, if you take a single exam in the professional series that you are currently certified in after 1/1/06, then you are automatically recertified. So, assuming you took the exam in September this year, you are already recertified for your CCNP.
