Dave Mills, Steria LTD. - Microsoft MCPD .NET 3.5 Enterprise Applications Developer (14 days) (10/5/2010 to 23/5/2010)

Racine Conde. - Microsoft MCPD .NET 3.5 Enterprise Applications Developer (14 days) (4/1/2010 to 17/1/2010)
"Learning enough Windows Communication Framework in 17 hours to pass the examn, with no pre-requisites? One of the class room students succeeded. That tells everything about the concept. Fantastic. I have no problem at all in recommending FireBrand and the MCPDEAD 3.5 course to all my colleges."
Michael Quist, the nordic company. - Microsoft MCPD .NET 3.5 Enterprise Applications Developer (14 days) (7/6/2010 to 20/6/2010)

A.A, Altius. - Microsoft MCSD: Web Applications (9 days) (11/5/2015 to 19/5/2015)
"The training Firebrand has provided is intense, but totally worth it! The expert knowledge from friendly trainers and welcoming environment has made learning difficult topics and taking exams far easier than they would otherwise be."
S.W. - Microsoft MCSD: Web Applications (9 days) (11/5/2015 to 19/5/2015)
"A lot of very useful and practical information. The instructor was concerned with real life scenarios and also gave me the solution to a particular business requirement. His course materials were excellent and WCF/WebAPI was particularly well covered through a practical example. However, be very well prepared before the course as it is an exam preparation course rather than a training course."
Michael Macneil, Elfab. - Microsoft MCSD: Web Applications (9 days) (11/5/2015 to 19/5/2015)
"I've learnt a huge amount from the course. The instructor was lively and engaging, helping you to learn as much as possible."

"Great course that will definitely make a positive impact on our planned deployment of Microsoft Dynamics 2015. The instructor was very knowledgeable and could give multiple real world examples, scenarios and advice. Would advise this course to anyone currently using Dynamics or planning a deployment. Get ready for some long hours, but its worth it!"
Jan Posthumus, HCA International. - Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 (8 days) (10/5/2015 to 17/5/2015)
"I found Firebrand's training highly useful. Unlike other courses, I considered it gave more than a high level overview of the subject matter, it also benefited from the trainers extensive experience and advice on real life application."
Henry Lamborn, Intercity Telecom. - Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 Online (6 days) (11/5/2015 to 16/5/2015)

Michael Paterson, William Grant & Sons ltd. - Microsoft MCSE: SharePoint 2013 (6 days) (11/5/2015 to 16/5/2015)
"If you can keep up, then its rewarding!"
S.A. - Microsoft MCSD: Web Applications (9 days) (11/5/2015 to 19/5/2015)
"I attended Firebrand Training Center in Wyboston Lakes twice and on both occasions found the experience very rewarding. The environment is very conducive to concentrating on the material and learning the course. The hours are long and the material is covered quickly so you need a basic understanding of the topic beforehand. The labs are very good for putting into practice what you have learned. I would of liked a bit more time at night for self study and go over any areas I wasnt sure about. Overall the experience was good and the instructor really knows the material. "
Mark Kivlehan, Creditfix. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (27/4/2015 to 2/5/2015)

"It was hard, but worth the struggle..."
Michael Leschly, Daxiomatix ApS. - Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 Financials (5 days) (27/4/2015 to 1/5/2015)
"If you are willing to work hard and do long hours, then I would highly recommend Firebrand. Dont underestimate the amount of work you need to put in though, or the pace of the course.
Pass-rates are low as the exams are still tough (or certainly the MCSA is). You cant expect to turn up and pass, you have to work your socks off and study day and night!
If you do all that, then you can walk away with a certification within the course duration!"
Paul Seamark, Inq Ltd.. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2012 R2 (9 days) (18/4/2015 to 26/4/2015)
"Although it is an intense workload and you get very fatigued it is still the best fast track option in my opinion. Spending one business week away from work rather than 3 would be beneficial for most people (their companies mostly)."
S.C, Chelsea FC. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2012 R2 (9 days) (18/4/2015 to 26/4/2015)
"I would highly recommend Firebrand Training to anyone who is serious about further advancing their knowledge or becoming certified in a particular field. The instructors know the product inside out and can teach it in their own style which keeps you engaged throughout the long days. They also have a good understand of the vendors' exam questions and how to interpret them into the theory you have been taught - this was a huge help for me."
Dean Greer, Kainos Software. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2012 R2 (9 days) (18/4/2015 to 26/4/2015)
"Well structured course, plenty of time to study. Pass rate is very high. Had a fun but educational time."
Jake Breakwell, Pro Drive IT. - Microsoft MTA Networking, Security & Windows Server Administration (6 days) (7/4/2015 to 12/4/2015)
"Good training environment with excellent support. Instructors have a wide range of knowledge and all on site staff are friendly and helpful. Course content is good and provides you with all the knowledge required to sit the exams."
David Taylor, AA Projects Ltd. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2012 R2 (9 days) (3/4/2015 to 11/4/2015)
"The course leader was fantastic- knew lots of stuff and taught and explained the content really well. Always happy to explain further or spend time after the course day had finished.
The course is quite pacey with long days - not to be underestimated..."
G.H. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2012 R2 (9 days) (3/4/2015 to 11/4/2015)
"Very intensive course packed full of in-depth information, squeezed in to 9 days and the possibility of a MCSA! Working knowledge of 2012 is a MUST!"

Paul Ison, Alex Reid Ltd. - Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 Developer (6 days) (23/3/2015 to 28/3/2015)
"Intense, time-consuming & stressful - but worth it in the end! Very fast paced - so dont expect to learn EVERYTHING on the course - best to study well and prepare before coming.
Ester Agun, CELERITY INFORMATION SERVICES. - Microsoft MCSA: SQL Server (9 days) (21/3/2015 to 29/3/2015)
"Over the past 9 days I have gone from a basic understanding of Windows Server 2012 R2, to understanding a large number of the complex underlying elements and features that I never knew existed.
Thanks to the level of knowledge and accessibility of our trainer outside of the course hours, I was able to get the attentiveness that I needed to understand these areas as well as I possibly could. "
Daniel Horton, Parker Software. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2012 R2 (9 days) (21/3/2015 to 29/3/2015)
"Intense content delivery, but great learning experience and knowledge exchange with people from various backgrounds!"
C.S. - Microsoft MCSA: SQL Server (9 days) (21/3/2015 to 29/3/2015)
"I believe everyone has their own geeky section that they really enjoy within IT. The times that I have been to Firebrand the instructors have fit this mould with the relevant courses I have been on. Their enthusiasm for the content being studied helps with the 9 days immensely. Although a tough experience, when you get back to your place of work it is pleasantly surprising how much you have learnt whilst on the course. I will however not miss the lack of sleep!"
Steven Parkinson, Equiniti ICS. - Microsoft MCSA: SQL Server (9 days) (21/3/2015 to 29/3/2015)

"MCPD certification in 2 weeks... a lot of hard work but it is amazing, the amount you can learn in a short time. It is due to the excellent location and facilities but mainly our instructor. He is an excellent instructor who really knows his subject inside out." Andrew McGibbon (Firebrand MCPD certified)
"Firebrand provide a fantastic working environment and I can not speak highly enough of both the course instructor and all the other Firebrand employees. The food is top notch and definitely a highlight! William Marshall (Firebrand MCPD certified)
