About Us

Our company has been in the business of providing Cisco equipment and Certification Kits since 2000. Whether you are looking for a single device, are a CCNA student putting together a home study lab, or are a large corporation or educational institution looking to work with a long established provider of Cisco equipment, CertificationKits is here to help. We accept all major credit cards, PayPal, Wire Transfer, Cashier's check, and for qualified companies or schools, we gladly accept purchase orders.

Our warehouse is located at:

120 Easy St, Suite 5
Carol Stream, IL 60188

Almost all orders ship from this location within one business day (and often times the same day). We keep a very large inventory of Cisco routers, switches and accessories which enables us to satisfy the demands from individual customers/students, all the way up to large universities and corporations. No order is too big or too small for us to handle.

Why Choose CertificationKits For Your CCNA Certification And Training Needs?

Here at CertificationKits we are here to assist you with putting together the best Cisco certification lab for your hard-earned money. In addition, we have the widest selection of equipment available of any vendor to meet all of your Cisco training needs at an affordable price. The way we see it, you have a few choices on how to build your Cisco training lab:

  1. You can try a simulator program that just will not give you the experience you need to master the Cisco certification concepts. There are just too many things you can‘t do with a simulator that I cover in other parts on my website. Besides, would you feel comfortable with the pilot of your airplane whose only experience was on his Xbox 360 playing Flight Simulator? Probably not. Nor will most employers feel comfortable hiring a Cisco technician who never opened a Cisco router or switch.
  2. You can try to find all the pieces on eBay and purchase them from multiple individuals who are dumping their equipment for various reasons. You will then have multiple shipping charges that will ultimately make your total purchase price more expensive than if you purchased it all in one place. Also good luck getting support if you get stuck in your studies or have a problem with your equipment. How can they warranty something they don’t stock? Will RacerX321 reply to your emails if there is an issue? Anyway, we sell the same kits on eBay too and we consistently have the best price on eBay for Cisco CCNA certification kits.
  3. You might find another established hardware reseller who may be close in price to us, but they are just a hardware vendor. Ask them what STP is and they may reply “Wasn’t that a band in the 90s…Stone Temple Pilots?”. Something tells me they may not be able to assist you with any of your technical questions short of repeating things they have overheard but not actually done.

We Are Unlike Any Other Cisco Hardware Vendor, We Truly Care About Your Cisco Certification Goals

We are not like those other hardware vendors you will find out on the Internet. They are not Cisco certified and they just push hardware out to their customers. We have the technical expertise to recommend to you the best Cisco certification lab kit for you budget and we have the certifications on staff to prove it! Since we have the technical expertise, we can also provide support when you are having a problem figuring out why an interface will not come up. A hardware vendor will not be able to provide that support to you and that is priceless. We have the following certifications on staff:

  1. Cisco CCNA
  2. Cisco CCNP
  3. Microsoft MCSE NT4
  4. Microsoft MCSE 2000
  5. Microsoft MCSE 2003
  6. Citrix CCA 1.8
  7. Citrix CCA XP
  8. Citrix CCEA XP
  9. Citrix CCA
  10. Presentation Server 4
  11. Novell CNE 4
  12. Novell CNE 5

Yes, a few of the certifications are older. That goes to show that we did not get into the IT industry in the past year or two. Associates on staff have managed large network infrastructures and migrations for Fortune 500 companies, owned a training school and been an instructor for all the certifications listed above and also have published training books. CertificationKits has been in business providing Cisco certification kits since 2000.
