"The Tutor is excellent."
Anonymous (4/7/2023 (Tuesday) to 7/7/2023 (Friday))

"Very impressed with the dedication from the instructor and how well structured the sessions are. The course is very intense since it's only 3 days long, however, the quality of the training makes it worthwhile. I'd recommend going in person since you will find it much easier to focus and likely get more out of the course overall."
Simon Brown, Softcat. (8/9/2023 (Friday) to 10/9/2023 (Sunday))

I can confidently say that Firebrand Training played a pivotal role in helping me achieve AWS Solution Architect Associate certification. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to excel in AWS cloud architecture."
