  3. Pass AWS Solutions Architect first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  4. You’ll learn more AWS Solutions Architect. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor

As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 108,833 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study AWS Solutions Architect courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging


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 and exams on your return). 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.

"Course was really useful."
Shobin Sathyan, Contino. (7/6/2021 (Monday) to 13/6/2021 (Sunday))

"I would like to thank the instructors and Firebrand staff who have made my experience here great despite current Covid climates. This has been one of the best courses I have been on and I am grateful for the instructor to be teaching it. The course was very intense - make no mistake, it is not a course that you should just turn up to and assume you will pass - it requires effort, but the instructor helped and explained everything I was struggling with. I have no doubt I wouldnt have the passed the exam without the instructor's assistance and guidance. Another point here I would like to add, I know remote working is probably the future, but on-site learning cannot be beaten, it lets you stay focused and concentrate - key requirements for this course."
Martin Barrow. (11/5/2020 (Monday) to 17/5/2020 (Sunday))

"The training material was made available in time before the training. The trainer was very experienced and had a comprehensive overview of AWS. The course always started on time, intermediate questions were answered and the learning contents were conveyed in a comprehensible way! Great!"
Lars Sextro. (1/6/2020 (Monday) to 7/6/2020 (Sunday))

"Great depth of expertise, good measured delivery, good supporting material....matched by pre-course engagement by support and account management personnel, will be recommending to these guys colleagues and others."
Philip Copland, ExcelRedstone. (10/4/2020 (Friday) to 16/4/2020 (Thursday))

"I enjoyed the course and the wealth of information covered and hands on labs. The instructor was engaging and was able to answer questions and provide useful advice."
