Usually you attend courses and learn theory to pass exams.

Overall the experience has been amazing and I certainly would return and recommend Firebrand to anyone. :)"

Even if I didn't pass I would still feel like it is possible and there would always be a next time.

I would recommend this to anyone looking to learn from the most qualified instructors and to a very high standard, Also on a latter note, our lecturer was absolutely outstanding!!!!"
