The course duration was just right, 6 days to cover 3 modules was perfect. The practice exams are priceless, you can never prepare yourself for the real thing however they got you ready for the daunting aspect of exam conditions. The level of help, support and enthusiasm for us to succeed drives you to do your best (and the failure is not an option T-shirt helps!). Thank you - I will be back!"

Mohammad B, CRMCS Consultancy. - Microsoft Specialist: Programming in C# (4 days) (3/7/2017 to 6/7/2017)

"The training is very good. It is not passive, so you have to work hard, but you get all the key information you need to build upon - with your own reading and revision adding the extra insight needed for the exam. My expectation before the course was that I might pass one of the three exams, but I soon realised that if I was prepared to work in the evenings as the instructor encouraged us all to, then I could get through them all (so far Ive passed 2 with one more this afternoon!). It was up to me now. Having passed an MCP in server 2003 through self-study - which took nearly 12 months - I was very impressed with how much you can learn when able to get the answers you need from a subject matter expert and how quickly you can get through a single exam - a matter of a few days. The labs were also very useful for getting hands-on experience and testing out what you had learned during the day. In terms of the accommodation and food, it was excellent - a small issue with my shower was fixed within hours and the staff are all friendly and very professional. You get a very good choice of food and if you prefer a low carb diet like myself then thats no problem. If you prefer to relax in the evening then there is a decent bar where you can take some time out with your new friends. "
Ben Kane, Euro Recycling. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (11 days) (24/6/2017 to 4/7/2017)

"Excellent learning environment, knowledgeable staff. Well paced course syllabus."
Matthew Ottley, Manuli Hydraulics UK Ltd. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (11 days) (24/6/2017 to 4/7/2017)

"5th Course at firebrand, and as always a great experience. Trainers are friendly and willing to answer most any questions you may have, even if they have to get back to you later 10/10"
Ethan ODonnell. - Microsoft Windows Server 2016 - Networking (3 days) (28/6/2017 to 30/6/2017)

"Very happy with the course and cannot wait to come back for mtadev in a couple of months. Definitely enjoy server work."

Hes very, very knowledgeable in the subject which is helped with live notes to take a way (a first for me!) and provided time to carry out labs to test out what is learnt in theory."
