"The training at Firebrand is excellent, the instructors have a very wide knowledge of IT Systems and even beyond that.
All courses I have been on were set out clearly, well delivered and I was never made to feel left out or lost at any point. If ever I was confused, The instructors did an excellent job at explaining things in a way that was possible for me and others to understand."

Ryan Lay. - CompTIA A+ (4 days) (6/11/2017 to 9/11/2017)
"The instructor was one of the best teachers I had the pleasure to learn with. He explained everything in a clear manner and made sure everyone understood the material. He is definitely the reason I passed the certification. Although the course was accelerated I was following everything and Gareth took time to explain more complicated modules, which I found very helpful. I will definitely be coming back to Firebrand and hope he will be the one teaching then!
The course in its entirety was very enjoyable and really useful. I would definitely do it again and I recommend it to anyone that wants to learn fast and retain the knowledge!"
Grazyna Dzwigala. - CompTIA Security+ Certification (3 days) (25/10/2017 to 27/10/2017)
"I was reticent to do a boot camp but it wasn't as scary as it sounded and I loved the pace! Rather than spending time faffing between home and course, you could stay in one place and access the training and resources as much as needed. Really love the set up and will definitely come back for another course."

Food is also a bonus!
I would 100% recommend that anyone doing these courses does the pre-reading as it was massively helpful to do this. Rather than having to learn everything on the course which would have been full-on, you could use the course to fill in any holes in your knowledge."

Your 3-day accelerated Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA+) certification course teaches you the knowledge and skills required to perform a host of tasks related to securing and protecting applications and systems within an organisation.
Our experienced instructors will teach you, through our unique Lecture | Lab | Review approach, to configure threat detection tools, perform data analysis and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats and risks to an organisation.
Cyber security analytics vastly improves your threat visibility by focusing on network behaviour, including an organisation’s interior network. These threats are better detected through analytics.
On this accelerated CSA+ course you will focus on the following four cyber security domains:
This course is aimed at cyber security professionals with at least two to three years of on-the-job experience.
The training incorporates hands-on practical work in the form of virtual labs and software tools. This approach will accelerate your learning and will help retain your new found knowledge.
The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA+) exam is on site and includes a performance-based assessment.
Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.
Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Exam: CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA+)
As part of the course you will be prepared for exam CS1-001, which you will sit during the course. This is covered by your Certification Guarantee.
