Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be certified in just 2 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  2. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass 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 . 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
  5. You’ll learn faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily

  7. You'll do more than study 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

Benefits

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.

"Firebrand are well organised and their facilities, accommodation and training rooms are more than fit for purpose. The all-inclusive course represents good value and I would not hesitate to recommend to a friend or colleague, and have already done so!"
P.J., EDF Energy. (26/4/2021 (Monday) to 30/4/2021 (Friday))

"I find courses can be stressful. - Find the place, get there and home each day, Firebrand have one requirement - find their facility. From that point on they will handle all your needs completely. Taking that extra work away from you allows you to learn more freely than in other settings. They have high-quality management staff and instructors. They cover a wide range of valuable course. I've used them at least 6 times now and always look at their website first if an opportunity for training comes up through my employer."
Wayne Thompson, United Utilities. (26/4/2021 (Monday) to 30/4/2021 (Friday))

"Highly recommended. I completed the GICSP training, which Im confident has put me in a good place to take the exam. The instructor was very knowledgeable and delivered the training in a straightforward manner that was easy to digest. The environment was open and supported my many questions. I found Firebrand pleasant to work with, quick to respond, and wouldnt hesitate to use again."
