Watch an interview with Darren Edmondson talking about his reaction to winning Free Training For Life

The winner of Firebrand's third Free Training For Life competition is Darren Edmondson. He works for Gamma Telecom, a leading supplier of voice, data and mobile products and services in the UK, where he has been employed for 8 years. Working from their Manchester offices, Darren is the Head of Information Technology.

In an initial interview, Darren expressed his reactions to winning the prize which was:

"SHOCK! I have never won a prize draw before!"

After unveiling aspirations to improve his security knowledge, with plans to pursue the (ISC)2 CISSP and EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certifications, Darren elaborated on what the prize meant for him:

"Winning the prize will give me the opportunity to get the training I’ve always wanted, but never had the money or backing to do. With the training I will be able to accelerate my IT career in the direction I want it to go.

Going forward I will always be able to keep my knowledge up to date, and so no longer have the 'out of date' qualifications."
