Cisco Certificate and Kit

Hey guys, I'm just wondering...do I have to pay for the printed copy of the certificate and have it shipped to my address or is it free and just wait for it arrived? I'm not sure about this...if anyone can clarify this that would be awesome. Much appreciated :)

    One printed certificate is free. Replacements are available for a fee.

    Mine took almost 4 weeks to arrive.

    I have yet to frame mine icon_sad.gif

    There's no space at my work to hang or display but I figured I'd place it in my loft to remind me of my journey towards CCNA.

    You can download the PDF version multiple times without charge.

    Question to you guys, I have 3x 48-port Catalyst 2950 Switches and 1x 12-port Catalyst 2950 series switch. I have 3x multi-mode fiber cables to create trunking plus 4-6 pc to add to the mix. But my question is, I could purchase 2-3 Cisco 2600XM routers to add to my lab or a combo of different routers and maybe a firewall. Is finishing my labs better than grabbing a software emulator like Boson netsim to study for my CCNA? I have been expose to Cisco devices in the past, have an associate degree in network system administrator plus I work as a cell tech dealing with other network devices at the moment for cellular. What would be a good route for me to take? if selling the equipment and getting a software version is best for the CCNA then I might consider that. Thanks In Advance!

    Have you looked into GNS3 for router emulation?

    2950's aren't worth much, but you will be glad you have at least 3 when you start covering the spanning-tree material.

    Packet Tracer and GNS3 will suffice for CCNA :)

    yea the key is I need to grab 3 routers for the lab. What model routers should I pick up that can push me to a CCNP if I want to continue?

    Thats good to know but don't you need access to the lic version for the routers and switches in order to use them in GNS3?

    I went with 1841's. Make sure you get them somewhat loaded with RAM/Flash if you want them to run IOS 15

    Hey Jay, this is actually a very good question because, I though they provide you with a free one first right? Then any additional copy you have to pay for it?

    Also sorry if people think I tried to hijacked the thread. I figure since it was label Cisco Certification and kits that maybe others can ask question about kits under it? XD

    I want to say the replacement fee is $15 USD.
