Hi My CCNP expired.  Of course i am not going to retake 4 exams to recertify. I was wondering if there is a single composite to recertify.

    I'm afraid you will need to take a 4 exams again to become re-certified. Our networking guy recently had a similar experience and this was the advice he was told.

    No small test. You need to take them back again.

    Yep; the CCIE written is the composite to recertify. Now that you let your CCNP certification expire;  you need to retake all 4 tests.

    An alternative would be to pass the CCIE written, and then take and pass the CCIE lab;  since the CCIE has no pre-requisites,  you would then have a certification back.

    Retaking the 4 tests is an easier feat, I would argue.
