Learn to create complex mobile applications for Apple’s App store on this 3 day accelerated iOS app development course.

Your learning will focus on developing the practical skills to create apps for the iTunes store. You will be using iOS 8 SDK and Xcode 6. Your iOS app development training is hands-on, meaning you’ll be writing, running and testing code throughout the course. Using Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review technique you’ll retain the knowledge faster for application in the real world.

During this 3 day course you will cover a range of fundamental iOS app development topics including:

  • Using iOS 8’s audio and video APIs
  • Managing calendars, events and dates with Event Kit UI
  • Implementing data protection using Keychain
  • Developing unique and engaging interfaces with UIKit Dynamics
  • Manipulating groups and contacts in the iOS 8 address book

  1. You'll be iOS App Development certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be iOS App Development trained in record time
  2. Our iOS App Development course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass iOS App Development 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

As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 134,561 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study iOS App Development 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.

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

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.
