Jan 22 2003: Beginning with the release of CCNA 4 Version 2.13, qualification rules for CCNA Certification Vouchers have changed. Existing voucher qualification rules will remain unchanged for Curriculum Versions 2.12 and earlier.

In Curriculum Versions 2.12 and earlier, voucher qualification is based on final exam performance in each of the four CCNA classes. However, for Curriculum Versions 2.13 and beyond, voucher qualification is based on a single exam that is designed to review content covered on the CCNA Certification Exam. This exam is included as an optional part of CCNA 4. Three different forms of the CCNA 4 Chapter 9 exam are available to both the Instructor and Student Communities.

Students will be permitted to take each form of the exam once to qualify for the discount voucher. If a Student does not achieve a rating of Proficient on the first form, they can attempt to qualify by taking the second form, etc. As each form can only be taken one time, no exam deletions will be permitted. After a Student has qualified for the discount voucher, no other form of the exam will need to be activated for the Student. As is currently the rule, only one voucher will be given per Student. All other rules associated with voucher qualification remain the same.

Dec 15 2002: A transition to the latest 2.14 version of CCNA curriculum is being conducted. All 2.13 classes had been migrated to the newer version, as the Academy Connection launches.
