Bad time for renewing CCSE

I got an email from Checkpoint about my cert expiration,  but what is the challenge here? I can’t  take the same exam as per check Point FAQ, in this case CCSE but i gave a try and bang!,

After contact Check point i got the following options:

  • Upgrade your certifications to CCSM (156-115.77)
  • Take two of the following certifications to extend your current CCSE for 1 year
    • Secure Web Gateway
    • ThP-Threat Prevention
    • GAIA Intro -Gaia Overview
    • Advanced IPS
    • CCSBA-Sandblast
    • MTPA-Mobile Threat Prevention Administrator
    • MTPE-Mobile Threat Prevention Engineering
    • Wait for CCSE R80 to be released

I do not see the point to do 2 of the certs to renew the CCSE just for 1 year. The CCSE R80 should be available on Q3 as per Checkpoint. But who knows……

You can read the Check Point Certification  FAQ here

Maybe wait is the best option!  And do the Update exam after.

        You have a 3rd option then :)
        I am CCSE myself and I was thinking to go for the CCSME cert instead of renewing my certification. Should be easier than CCSM and you are moving forward. Just a thought.
        Cumprimentos :)

          Hi Renato,

          A 3rd option is UP also, but no time at all to deep dive on that. Let me know how that goes!
          Abs :)
