The CCNA, CCNP, and CCIE Routing and Switching certifications have received Gold certification from the IPv6 Forum's Education Certification Program - a worldwide organisation of leading Internet vendors, industry experts and research & education networks, promoting IPv6 technology.

Getting CCNP certified means you can display the IPv6 logo, proving that you have attained IPv6 knowledge and skills. This increases your professional credibility and skills to tackle the newest, cutting-edge technologies.

"Excellent course you need to know a lot of theory before hand but it makes you understand whats going on in those Cisco devices, and is excellent preparation for the CCNP exams. The tutor is extremely knowledgeable and happy to explain. Being on site and with 24 hours access to the classroom and away from the distractions of family life also help your revision and practice."
Mark Boardman. (20/10/2019 (Sunday) to 27/10/2019 (Sunday))

"The setup at Firebrand is fantastic. Being in an environment away from home definitely helps to focus your mind and means you can concentrate totally on learning. Accommodation is good, and gives you everything you need. Small but comfortable rooms, together with plenty of good food and strong coffee to get you through the day. The training is fast paced and intense, which means its not necessarily for everyone, but there is no better way to get through all the course material in a short space of time."
Stewart Beel, Waters Corporation. (20/10/2019 (Sunday) to 27/10/2019 (Sunday))
