To Have CCSE

Hi,

I have CCSA R80 valid one for next 3 months. Am I eligible to appear for CCSE R80 ?  if not what is the alternative option to CCSA R80.

what is the validity of CCSE same 2years as of CCSA ?

Read that anybody can write CCSE R80 without having CCSA R80, is that correct?

thanks in advance.

Having a valid CCSA is required to take the CCSE. So you should be good to sit the CCSE exam if your CCSA is still valid. 

CCSE is valid for 2 years. It can be extended one time for 1 year by completing an infinity specialist accreditation. Completing 2 infinity specialist accreditations on top of CCSE gives you the CCSM. 

More info can be found here.

Strange - in the link you posted in the last line i read:

  • You are still eligible to take the CCSE to advance in the certification path if your CCSA is expired.

@G_W_Albrecht Good catch!

I was going to mention Tug to clarify but looks like he already did here.

So apparently you can sit R80 CCSE with expired R80 CCSA.

This is correct. Having a valid CCSA is NOT required to take the CCSE.
