"Have learned so much on this course, looking forward to putting it all into practice!"
Anonymous (27/6/2016 to 1/7/2016)

"We had a perfect trainer who answered every question we had, and explained more we ever expected. He was available for us at all times for any questions we had outside of regular classes. I got deep insight into the product which is what I came to the course for. We got hands-on experience in the labs and excellent explanations of the technical background. The instructor is highly motivated and speaks with the experience of a senior consultant with many years of experience. The course was never boring despite the long hours and the difficult subject matters. We got the real thing and no "death by Powerpoint" "
Marco Marzorati, ISS World Services A/S. (30/5/2016 to 4/6/2016)

"You know you are in the right place, when your instructor on the first evening of training, during the intro to the course says, "PowerShell is not for wimps! It is a mans tool!". 10/10 - would Firebrand again :D"
Kasper Kaas Hansen, ALSO A/S. (23/5/2016 to 29/5/2016)

"I learned a lot, this course helped me understand all the fundamentals of web development"
Anonymous (16/5/2016 to 18/5/2016)

"Enjoyed the environment - Firebrand provide correct atmosphere and tools to allow candidate to disconnect from everything and just focus on their studies."
