James Laird, Jmfinn & Co. - Microsoft MTA Networking, Security & Windows Server Administration (6 days) (31/7/2017 to 5/8/2017)
"It was a great course, relevant information and a knowledgeable instructor. It helped to make a good bond with other attendees, helping with the evening revision and practice exams together in the hotel bar, or purely just moral support! Be prepared for a lot of intense information, take notes and use whatever vice you need; coffee, sugar, fizzy drinks to keep you alert! I had a great time and would definitely recommend."
KAYLEA REED, UTILITA ENERGY. - Microsoft MTA Networking, Security & Windows Server Administration (6 days) (31/7/2017 to 5/8/2017)
"My journey at Firebrand has been great. First course with them, it was extremely informative and I learnt more than I ever would in my own time. 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. "

"Training here is a very high standard with the tutor going into granular detail on each subject. Not only did we go through course material, we went through how these are applied into the day to day running of a business. New skills here will be taken back and implemented into my working environment."
Richard Smith , Redcare 5G. - Cisco CCNP (Routing & Switching) (8 days) (25/6/2017 to 2/7/2017)

James Elmer, BMPA. - CompTIA Security+ Certification (3 days) (28/6/2017 to 30/6/2017)
"The course was great. Lots of information to take in,but the pace was definitely manageable.
Gareth was friendly and answered any questions asked!
Food is also a bonus!
I would 100% recommend that anyone doing these courses does the pre-reading as it was massively helpful to do this. Rather than having to learn everything on the course which would have been full-on, you could use the course to fill in any holes in your knowledge."
Kristian Ward, Switch Networks. - CompTIA Security+ Certification (3 days) (28/6/2017 to 30/6/2017)

Tim Goldfield, Geek Guru Ltd. - (ISC)2 CISSP Boot Camp (7 days) (19/6/2017 to 25/6/2017)
"Firebrand Training brings focus, you are completely submersed in the training and it allows for dedicated training. The facility is secluded enough to ensure that there are no temptations to wonder away from study. Whilst it is not military training it is regimented enough to provide you with the best possible out come."
