About Us

Our company has been in the business of providing Cisco equipment and Certification Kits since 2000, making us the original and premiere provider of Cisco Lab Kits.  With over 20+ years of experience, you can say that we know a thing or two by now. 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, PayPal Credit, Wire Transfer, Cashier’s check, and for qualified companies or schools, we gladly accept purchase orders.

We are located at:

1212 S Naper Blvd, Ste 119-329 Naperville, IL 60540

Almost all orders ship 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.  Even if we do not have an item on our site, we can quickly source just about anything on a special order basis, so never hesitate to ask if you don’t see exactly what you are looking for!

Why Choose CertificationKits For Your CCNA Certification And Cisco Training Needs?

Here at CertificationKits we are here to assist you every step of the way 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 we cover in other parts on our website. Besides, would you feel comfortable with the pilot of your airplane whose only experience was on his Xbox playing Flight Simulator? Probably not. Nor will most employers feel comfortable hiring a Cisco technician who never opened a Cisco router or switch.  In fact, most employers actually screen for that.
  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 and now tax that will ultimately make your total purchase price more expensive than if you purchased it all in one place, where we get it right the first time. 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.
  4. We only staff experienced, certified individuals.  Our training materials have a long history of being the best and we work hard to keep it that way.  With 1000s of individuals certified using out kits, we are more than confident that if follow our training materials combined with our kits, you will have your certification in no time!

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.  They are often just reading a general model indicator somewhere on the chasis, then plug the unit it to see if it powers on and call it “tested”.  We know exactly which equipment we are offering and test everything down to the port level.  We also ONLY sell A grade equipment.  Simply, you get what you pay for.

We have the technical expertise to recommend to you the best Cisco certification lab kit for your 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. CNSS 4011
  4. Comptia A+
  5. Comptia Network+
  6. Comptia Security+
  7. Comptia Project+
  8. ITIL
  9. Six Sigma
  10. Comptia A+
  11. Microsoft MCSE NT4
  12. Microsoft MCSE 2000
  13. Microsoft MCSE 2003
  14. Citrix CCA 1.8
  15. Citrix CCA XP
  16. Citrix CCEA XP
  17. Citrix CCA
  18. Presentation Server 4
  19. Novell CNE 4
  20. 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.
