The three areas of knowledge that you'll take away from Firebrand's course:

  • Scrum - you'll practice being part of a Scrum team, so you'll see the core concepts in action. This will help you to practice self-organisation, and learn how to identify and overcome common Scrum team dysfunctions
  • Tools - this course can focus on either Eclipse + IBM Rational Jazz or Eclipse + Open Source tools. You'll learn how to map the tools to the relevant Scrum practices
  • Best practices:
    • Coding - test-driven development, continuous integration and refactoring
    • Architecture - emergent architecture and evolutionary database development
    • Release management - planning, requirements definition, and shipment
    • Quality assurance - defining "done", pair programming, version control and acceptance testing.

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a Certification Guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
