    Go ahead and start studying for R70, unless you're taking the test really soon. I'm not sure about the expiration, but folks are already reporting problems with scheduling the R65 exams. The cert is valid until the software version goes end of support, so in a couple of years or so the R65 cert will no longer be valid.

    The reason why I don't want to take R70 is because ccse R65 is easier compared to the R70. Also the once I get that I just have to take only one exam to upgrade it to R70

    You might want to look at the Check Point website then as now shows a CCSA upgrade and a CCSE upgrade course and exam.

    Check Point Certified Security Expert (CCSE) R70 Upgrade

    The pre-req for the CCSE R70 Upgrade exam is CCSA R70 or CCSA R70 Upgrade

    It appears that Check Point would rather have you pay twice to get your CCSE upgraded rather then just one exam.

    If you want the R70 then we are all going to have to both upgrade exams.

    I'm certain that is a typo, I've seen other documents from CP that state that CCSE NGX (R60 or R65) is the only prereq for CCSE R70. Besides, if you think about it, why would a CCSA qualify you for a CCSE upgrade exam?

    I do agree with mcnallym. The prerequisite for ccse R70 is both ccse r65 or ccsa r70 not sure about R60. I can very easily pass the ccsa exam in R70 its only the extra few weeks of my time plus money i was thinking about plus ccse in R70 is far more difficult then the ccse r65. Thanks for all your suggestions i will take the difficult route.

    Prerequisite for CCSA R70 Upgrade is one of the following:
    CCSA NG
    CCSA NG FP3
    CCSA NG AI
    CCSA NGX
    CCSA NGX R65

    Prerequisite for CCSE R70 Upgrade is one of the following:
    CCSE NGX
    CCSE NGX R65

    No need to have CCSA R70 if you like to upgrade your CCSE R65 to CCSE R70
