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.

"Good, learning hours have improved to a more manageable amount compared to beforehand allowing me to better grasp and retain information gained"
Liam Coleman, IBM. (2/12/2019 to 3/12/2019)

"I found the Firebrand method of incorporating the traditional classroom teaching with the collaborative and interactive group work to be really useful in reinforcing learning. "
A.F.. (13/11/2019 to 14/11/2019)

"Excellent course. Greatly increased my understanding of the principles and best practices of agile testing. Lots of practical exercises and student participation rather than endless PowerPoint slides. The Trainer was friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Suggestion: we covered a lot of ground in two days. Perhaps extend the course to three days ."
J.A.. (13/11/2019 to 14/11/2019)

"Well organised with good facilities.Very helpful to have the accommodation literally in the next building to the training center. "
Ann Shepherd. (14/10/2019 to 15/10/2019)

"The course touched on a wide range of topics and provided me with useful insight into the world of agile testing. The course was delivered at a steady pace and was easily relatable to my previous testing knowledge, I feel as though I will be able to take away what we have covered and apply this to my current working role. "
James Kerr, UAT Test Analyst . (23/9/2019 to 24/9/2019)
