Here's the Firebrand Training review section. Since 2001 we've trained exactly 65.217 students and asked them all to review our Accelerated Learning. Currently, 96.56% have said Firebrand exceeded their expectations:



"The instructor was one of the best teachers I had the pleasure to learn with. He explained everything in a clear manner and made sure everyone understood the material. He is definitely the reason I passed the certification. Although the course was accelerated I was following everything and Gareth took time to explain more complicated modules, which I found very helpful. I will definitely be coming back to Firebrand and hope he will be the one teaching then! The course in its entirety was very enjoyable and really useful. I would definitely do it again and I recommend it to anyone that wants to learn fast and retain the knowledge!"
Grazyna Dzwigala. - CompTIA Security+ (3 days) (25.10.2017 to 27.10.2017)

"I was reticent to do a boot camp but it wasn't as scary as it sounded and I loved the pace! Rather than spending time faffing between home and course, you could stay in one place and access the training and resources as much as needed. Really love the set up and will definitely come back for another course."
