We've trained more than 30,000 students in ten years. We asked them all to review our Accelerated Learning. Currently, 95.88% have said Firebrand exceeded their expectations:
"I have trained with Firebrand before, the "boot camp" ethos suits my situation and I have never failed to take value back to my everyday work. The ISTQB course is very in-depth and pre-reading is essential, I would suggest trying to ensure the books are delivered at least a couple of weeks before the course. The instruction, as always, was exceptional and littered with real-life scenarios, which helped to put the content into perspective. "

"Firebrand is an extreme way of learning and not for the faint hearted. If you put the effort in, you will learn a lot in a short space of time. The team are very friendly and work very hard and long hours to help you get as much of your course as possible."

"Unlike many other trainings, Firebrand helped us not just get certified and comprehend things, but imbibe them well and take lot of learning to our jobs to be put in use. Very good instructor who eases studying and made it more fun than learning."
