M.C. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (17/10/2016 to 22/10/2016)

Loved his teaching methods and approach, and there was never any pressure to take the test unless we were ready. He was all about teaching us and also in a way guiding us to make sure we don't rush things. "
R.K. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (17/10/2016 to 22/10/2016)

Jonathan Walsh. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (1/2/2016 to 6/2/2016)
"A lot of knowledge to get. I would say that the 90% success rate is not true for the MSCX I have visited. But Firebrand offer a great deal by making you able to re-take the course for free."
Jerome Wentzel, AMAC Aerospace Switzerland. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (20/7/2015 to 25/7/2015)

Daniel Fadil. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (20/7/2015 to 25/7/2015)
"The course was well formatted to align with the exams. Labs and course material was very good."

"The instructor was very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject. It did make a big different for such an intense and condensed course."
Kalpesh Bharadwa, Annodata Ltd. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (20/7/2015 to 25/7/2015)
"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. "

Craig Boydell, First Quantum Minerals. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (7/10/2013 to 12/10/2013)
"This is the 4th course I have attended with Firebrand. As with all of the other courses, I have been impressed by the facilities and the instructor. Everything really is in place to help you learn a subject matter in a short time.
All you need to bring along is the commitment to put in a lot of hard work. These accelerated learning courses really do work, but are not for the faint hearted. Be prepared to burn the candle at both ends if you want to get the best out the course. The instructor as ever was very knowledgeable and was always available to assist with specific questions or problems. I thoroughly recommend Firebrand to any one who wants to get the most out of their valuable time and is willing to put in the hard work."
