The course material was delivered confidently in a structured way by an approachable instructor who would be quick to offer assistance and clarity when needed.

This was my first Microsoft course, and it was the best course I have attended to date. The instructor was excellent and really knows the subject (and other related subjects like PowerShell etc). The course content was thorough and in a suitable format to learn both for the exam and for gaining knowledge to use in the day job, I would recommend to anyone who is looking for more knowledge on SharePoint or who would like to gain the certification.

O.J. - Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 (8 days) (31/1/2016 to 7/2/2016)
"I attended Firebrand training for the CRM online 2015 course (7 days). Firstly, the tutors are amazing, the knowledge they have is out of this world.
Usually you attend courses and learn theory to pass exams. However, at Firebrand you tend to gain more practical knowledge which, by default leads you to understand the concept of the theory (if that makes sense).
Overall the experience has been amazing and I certainly would return and recommend Firebrand to anyone. :)"

I also felt welcomed when I joined the group and didn't feel like an outsider even though I joined late. All in all I would definitely recommend it and the training standards are extremely high."

"I really enjoyed my time at Firebrand. Our instructor was incredibly knowledgeable I feel like the whole class benefited from her teaching style because she didn't just train us to pass exams; her goal was that we went away with real and in-depth knowledge of the product, which is far more valuable."
