"Having just completed a week of intense but enjoyable training, for the EC Councils Certified Ethical Hacker v9 at Firebrand Training Ltds Wyboston Lakes facilities and passed the exam on the final day. I can thoroughly recommend the company, facilities, support staff and World Class Instructors at firebrand. I successfully studied and completed my ISC2 CCSP there previously and once again the overall package could not have been bettered anywhere. I have recently experience training with another very well known supplier and frankly Firebrand is in a totally different league with every regard. If you want to obtain IT or Cyber certifications then I suggest you train with the best at Firebrand Wyboston Lakes. I shall be recommending to my colleagues, that they don't even consider this type of training elsewhere. I cant recommend them highly enough. Thanks again Firebrand."
