"Great course with a brilliant course teacher. The instructor managed to dumb down complex concepts and made an interactive educative environment."
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. "
Ben Kane, Euro Recycling. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (11 days) (24/6/2017 to 4/7/2017)

Anonymous - BCS CISMP (4 days) (26/6/2017 to 29/6/2017)

"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)

"The instructor's knowledge and experience were invaluable, always ready to explain further, a great sense of humour and kept the pace of the course at the right tempo. Firebrand staff - first class; no job to big or too small, really helpful."
Paul Stubbs. - (ISC)2 Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) (6 days) (26/6/2017 to 1/7/2017)

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."

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.
