"Gets you through the course, and the food was fab :-)."
Marc Birkett, NHS North of Tyne. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (29/6/2009 to 5/7/2009)

"The course was as I expected from reading the other testimonials - its hard hard work, but the facilities are second to none and the learning environment is ideal for such an intensive course. I would definitely recommend buying the books first and pre reading them before coming."
Chris Thompson, NHS. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (29/6/2009 to 5/7/2009)

"I was very impressed by the course and very much enjoyed my time. It is hard work without a doubt but definitely worth while and very interesting. If you are serious about training and working with your new skills I doubt there is a better company you could want to train with. I attended the course originally on a personal recommendation and I will definitely be passing on such a recommendation myself. All in all I did alot of hard work but feel I have gained some excellent skills at a very high level. Some training companies dont go into the more complex and interesting topics, this is not the case for Firebrand Training. They covered all the topics I will need in the real world and enabled me to pass my certification first time."
James Bloom, I am a contractor and curently on a training break (last contract was with BT). - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (6/4/2009 to 12/4/2009)

"If I were to train for my MCTS Certification by self-study this would have taken me months! By taking Firebrand Training's intensive course has enabled me to stay entirely focused on the subject with absolutely no distractions. Perfect environment for total immersion. "
Simon Walker, SSP. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (6/4/2009 to 12/4/2009)

"They work you hard but its worth it."
I M, Friends Reunited. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (9/2/2009 to 15/2/2009)

"A very intense but worthwhile learning experience. My Instructor was exceptionally knowledgeable in his subject area and explained complex concepts in a way that was easy to understand. He was also more that willing to chat about real world examples and best practices. Having said that, don’t under estimate this course you really need a decent base level of understanding to pass the exams and keep up with the pace! "
C.C. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (8/12/2008 to 14/12/2008)

"Although I found this course very tough, and didn't succeed in the end, I have taken away a very good fundamental knowledge of the subjects divisions. I will now be able to return, practice more on the areas required and return to pass. I believe I have learnt a lot for someone with very little experience."
Nathan Bull. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (8/12/2008 to 14/12/2008)

"Make no mistake, these courses are heavy, packed and cover a huge range of topics even within the chosen course. Firebrand Training's breakdown and expertise in training/trainers really demonstrated the key features to know in the vast topic areas covered. In conjunction with real world experience, the course fills the gaps in knowledge needed to pass the exam."
S.Y, OPP ltd. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (8/12/2008 to 14/12/2008)

"Be prepared to work a long day 8.30 - 8.00 with studying after class. BUT the tutors knowledge is excellent and the course is well worth attending "
Denise Potter, Thamesteel Ltd. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (8/12/2008 to 14/12/2008)

"Very quick paced course, hard work but well run and very well delivered."
Chris Acton, Sourcewrite Limited. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (8/12/2008 to 14/12/2008)

"Firebrand Training is very hard, do not come here expecting to be in the bar everynight. During my time here the only time to go outside was to get the minibus to and from the station. Very hard work but the amount of information you learn is enormous!! Do not come here if you are not focused to learn."
Ben Westlake, Nemo Personal Finance. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (27/10/2008 to 2/11/2008)

"It was extremely hard work and a lot tougher that I expected. But all good in the end as I passed my exams! An excellent training facility."
Lindsay Hill-Bennett. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (6/10/2008 to 12/10/2008)

"It was a great experience. So much of knowledge in such a short span of time! Would definitely recommend it."
Dimpi Jain, Premium Credit Ltd. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (6/10/2008 to 12/10/2008)

"Whilst the training was intense the atmosphere was condusive to learning."
Richard Hinchliffe. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (4/8/2008 to 10/8/2008)

"An elightening experience... gained knowledge, experience, insight, clarity and probably a little weight..."
Jonathan Dunn. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (14/7/2008 to 20/7/2008)

"The facilities were of a high standard and the staff very courteous."
DS. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (14/7/2008 to 20/7/2008)

"The experience is a mad one. The days are long (7am - 10pm is quite normal) but having said that I came here with no code knowledge and I am going away with more than enough to really improve my skills and also my work applications. Totaly worth it (thanks to my work for paying). Great teaching, amazingly good food (free! as well). The whole environment is great for learning and no one will come here and disagree... thanks firebrand and thanks to our instructor."
Gareth Snook. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (23/6/2008 to 29/6/2008)

"Incredible amount learnt in the week. Very hard work but well worth it."
Adrian Molyneux. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (23/6/2008 to 29/6/2008)

"The whole Firebrand setup is very much focused on zero distraction learning. They provide an excellent environment in which all your needs are met such that you can focus soley on the task in hand - namely learning. At times it can be tiring, even exhausting, but if you are prepared to put the work in, the rewards are potentially massive. I would certainly consider taking another Firebrand course but not until the intensity of this one has faded from memory!"
Dave Lowe, GenesReunited. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (23/6/2008 to 29/6/2008)

"The learning experience is very, very intense but is necessary given the limited time of each course. You have to be comitted to studying and training. The environment is ideal for for this, and focusing on passing the exams."
PG. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (23/6/2008 to 29/6/2008)

"An intense course that really pushes you to learn. A very valuable experience that takes dedication to do but gives you the results."
Joseph Walters, Carlisle Group Plc.. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (23/6/2008 to 29/6/2008)

"Accelerated learning was the best way of getting trained and certified as you are fully immersed for the whole length of the course."
Christopher Frith, Landmarc Support Services Ltd. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (23/6/2008 to 29/6/2008)

"A very hard week and intensive from the start, but if you want to gain a good working knowledge of the topic area and obtain your qualifications, this course remains the most efficient way to acheive that goal."
Luke Bracegirdle, Keele University. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (26/5/2008 to 1/6/2008)

"Very hard work but you get back what you put in. I feel I've learnt so much in such a short time that it doesn't actually matter in the end if I get my qualifications or not, I know more than I did at the beginning."
Sarah Durham. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (26/5/2008 to 1/6/2008)

"Very hard work. I mean very hard! (16-17 hour days). "
John Ellis, Hoseasons. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (12/5/2008 to 18/5/2008)

Abbad Minhas. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (12/5/2008 to 18/5/2008)

Matt Smith. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (14/4/2008 to 20/4/2008)

"I arrived fresh faced and bushy tailed, I left with my head crammed full of facts and examples. I have difficulty communicating with the outside world again. Would I do it again? YES without hesitation."
Daniel Bryk, Smartodds. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (14/4/2008 to 20/4/2008)

"When they say intensive they mean it! 8:30 to 8:00 every day and 3 or 4 hours of homework every day. I have not worked this hard in a long long time. The breaks we did get meant eating the very good food, far top fast to enjoy it! Bring your MP3 player if you need music to study as it's quiet and beautiful surroundings are sometimes a bit too quiet!"
Richard Young. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (31/3/2008 to 6/4/2008)

"The MCTS - Web course was perfect for experienced .Net developers to fill in the gaps in their knowledge, and gain a Microsoft Certification. The centre is an ideal learning environment.

Eni Elezi, cambridge education. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (18/2/2008 to 24/2/2008)

GR. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (10/12/2007 to 16/12/2007)

"Extremely rewarding. The accommodation (was great rooms) were cleaned everyday. Totally impressed with the real life examples the instructor gave while using many of the features he taught us. This course delivers."
Yinka Aiyetigbo. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (10/12/2007 to 16/12/2007)

"Very very intense, just when you think your day is done (usually when your evening lab is completed at 9pm) - you then get another 5 chapters to read for the following day. Total immersion that I have never experienced before; funnily enough after 2-3 days I became acclimatised; wil probably miss it when I get home : )"
Tony Clarke. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (10/12/2007 to 16/12/2007)

"The course was very difficult (not hard, just draining), you dont know until you are actually there, but it is well worth it. I learnt so much more than any other course I have been on (over a dozen), and the environment and tests encourage you to push yourself further. Unless you are already an expert in the technology without extra reading you will not pass the exams, and preparing for them helps to cement the knowledge in your brain. The food is good and you do not go hungry with all the snacks provided. "
Christopher Gray. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (10/12/2007 to 16/12/2007)

Lamine Darbouche, Itarus Limited. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (29/10/2007 to 4/11/2007)

"Firebrand Training is clearly very hard work, but it provides a excellent environment for studying. My own opinion is that if the goal is to come out of the week with some form of accreditation, then prior knowledge of the material is required, as the pace of learning is simply too fast to make up ground on any areas not understood straight-away."
Michael Scott. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (29/10/2007 to 4/11/2007)

"Firebrand offered exactly what they said. The course (MCTS Web) was extremely intense, yet incredible rewarding. I would highly recommend this course. Also they have loads of Kit Kats and great food."
David Rundle. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (29/10/2007 to 4/11/2007)

"If you are prepared to be put in EXTRA effort to get your certification, Firebrand will help you get there."
Ram. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (29/10/2007 to 4/11/2007)

"Read up prior to coming on the course as this is not for the faint hearted. You must switch off from the outside world for the course, and keep on going. Overall you come out with a lot of ideas and hopefully a certification too."
Mustafa Bashir. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web Applications Training (7 days) (29/10/2007 to 4/11/2007)
