"Everyone at Firebrand are very lovely and helpful. Great course would recommend."
Faye Edworthyy, West Trad Ltd. (6/12/2018 (Thursday) to 7/12/2018 (Friday))

"Our teacher for this course was very friendly and taught all of us well making sure that we all understood a chapter before continuing onto the next one. We finished each chapter with a quiz so that we can put what we learnt to the test. There was a slight mix up with exams, however Firebrand were very quick to make the correct changes so that all of us can take the exams we were meant to. Brilliant job on such short notice."
