Firebrand goes digital

We’re currently migrating from printed to digital courseware. Some courseware is already available in digital, while other books remain in printed form. To find out if this course is digital, call us on 080 80 800 888.

There are several benefits of easy-to-use digital courseware: downloads are immediate, and you’ll always have your courseware available wherever you are. You won’t need to wait for a printed book to be delivered before you start learning – and it’s better for the environment. You can choose to download the courseware to your own device, or borrow one of ours.

Considering a Microsoft course? Always have the most up-to-date Microsoft digital courseware with ‘Fresh Editions’. This gives you access to all versions of digital courseware – you’ll receive updates and revisions of your textbook, at no charge, for the life of that course.

Examination Passing Policy

Should a student complete a Firebrand Training Program without having successfully passed all vendor examinations, the student may re-attend that program for a period of one year.  Students will only be responsible for accommodations and vendor exam fees.

Firebrand recommends you possess:

  • Experience with day-to-day Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 system administration, management and maintenance tasks in an Enterprise environment
  • MCSA: Windows Server 2008 or equivalent knowledge

You do not need the MCSA: Windows Server 2008 certification to take this course. However, if you do not possess this cert, passing the 70-147 upgrade exam will not provide you with the MCSA: Windows Server 2012 certification.
