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 has provided me with knowledge that will improve my skills in my working role as well as giving me more confidence that I can pass the MTA exams."
David Joynson, Kingfisher IT Services. (6/7/2020 (Monday) to 10/7/2020 (Friday))

"TSQL training with the instructor was great, very informative, interactive and beneficial. "
Anonymous (6/7/2020 (Monday) to 8/7/2020 (Wednesday))

"This was my first time training from home, but the experience was so good that this will be my preferred option for future courses."
Richard George, British Red Cross. (22/6/2020 (Monday) to 24/6/2020 (Wednesday))

"The instructor took time to teach the concepts using free flowing whiteboard sessions, followed by hands-on demonstrations, before going to the official course materials. Lessons were focused on both real-world and exam knowledge. I have been in many classes where the instructor just reads out the course materials and doesnt actually teach anything which was NOT the case here with Frebrand. The instructor explained things in a concise and easy to understand manner. One of the best instructors I have come across in over 20 years of attending IT courses."
James Tobin. (22/6/2020 (Monday) to 25/6/2020 (Thursday))

"The course instructor had very good knowledge and also was very experienced at doing what he is teaching. The course was full of real life examples."
C.Y., Appsfactory GmbH. (8/6/2020 (Monday) to 11/6/2020 (Thursday))
