Certifications prior to 2012 were part of the old F5 certification program, they have been discontinued. These certifications remained part of the candidate record for 4-years after they were deprecated. These certifications are no longer recognized by F5. Our new certifications are only valid for 2-years without being renewed.
When we moved to a new candidate management system in 2016, these records were not migrated to the new system as they added increased complexity/cost and added no value since we do not recognize them. As such, those records no longer exist and cannot be added to any account.
We did attempt to contact/notify all of the candidates having the old certifications as we deprecated and removed them. Unfortunately, most of those records were woefully out of date with inaccurate email addresses and contact information.
