"This was exactly the training experience I was looking for. Very intensive and non-stop, a great location away from the distractions of day to day life - a perfect way to learn. Breakfast, lunch and dinner included to feed the brain - and it needs feeding. The days are long, filled with a lot of writing, listening, practical exercises and study. The whole 6 days is an exercise in learning - and well worth it for those people who want to study hard and learn a lot in such a short period."

M.P. - Cisco CCNP (Routing & Switching) (8 days) (12/6/2016 to 19/6/2016)

"Firebrand's training schedule is never for the weak minded. It is a grueling schedule at best. The instructor's approach to this type of training schedule has been the best I have seen to date. When you get "your telephone directory" courseware, he has managed to condense this in such as way that you cover every aspect, BUT manage to retain it. I have never seen this level of effectiveness before on such a course. Thank you and well done to our instructor, you are a credit to Firebrand Training! :)"

"Great structure. Really good teacher. Good accommodation."
Chibuzor Achukoh, Siemens. - Cisco ICND2 (CCNA) (3 days) (9/6/2016 to 11/6/2016)

"Staff at the training center are really helpful, attentive and polite. If there is any assistance you need, they'll be there for you. My instructor, was exceptionally knowledgeable and I felt really comfortable that he was teaching the course. Normally, I like using practice exams to make sure the knowledge is sticking in my brain. On this course, however, I didn't feel the need to use practice exams. It was the way the instructor taught the class (recapping throughout the course) that made me feel like my brain will retain the information better. There was a lot of information being pushed into my head though, that I became really nervous before the exam and one of the staff member's reassured me that there was nothing to worry about and that I would do well. He calmed me down and I was ready to take the exam. I passed and felt over the mooon! Also, the new parasols that are up at the front of the training center makes the area much more colourful. I'm loving the red!"
Guen Xiu Dang, Firebrand Training LTD. - Cisco ICND1 (CCENT) (4 days) (6/6/2016 to 8/6/2016)

"Training experience, is usually down to the instructor, I felt our instructor covered all topics very thoroughly, and with clear reasoning to reinforce the training material."
Simon Fenwick, Staysure.co.uk. - Cisco ICND1 (CCENT) (4 days) (6/6/2016 to 8/6/2016)

"Good course a lot of material to take in but a good learning environment and great instructor."
Greg Denton, University of Birmingham. - Cisco ICND1 (CCENT) (4 days) (6/6/2016 to 8/6/2016)

"I have used Firebrand before, and this is my second course. Whilst the time frame for the course is short and challenging for the amount of content, the instructor was able to simplify concepts and make the experience enjoyable. The instructor is extremely knowledgeable and a great lecturer."
Anonymous - Cisco CCDP Fast Track (ARCH) (3 days) (1/6/2016 to 3/6/2016)

"Thanks Again! Long hours and learned a lot. Will be back for years to come. "
