At Firebrand, we specialise in getting you certified at twice the speed. For all of our courses, you can choose to study onsite or through Online Instructor-Led Training, also known as Firebrand OIL. Get certified in record time, from the comfort of your home—Firebrand-style!
Firebrand OIL uses Microsoft Teams to deliver a rich, interactive Virtual Classroom experience and immerse students in learning, emulating the physical experience as closely as possible. The platform allows for multimedia lectures and a hands-on training experience.
All of our courses can be attended through OIL, including
Simply book your course as usual and our training experts will set you up on Microsoft Teams. Once that is done, you'll just need to dial in and join the Virtual Classroom. From your dashboard, you'll also be able to access:
There are no special requirements. You just need:
Most of our courseware is digital, so you'll receive all course materials in your inbox. If your course requires physical materials, these will be mailed to you before the course.
All Firebrand accelerated IT training courses follow our trademark Lecture | Lab | Review methodology. Our labs aren't physical spaces; rather, they are virtual environments that run on a virtual machine and contain specific challenges and exercises related to course modules. Labs are vital as they give students the hands-on experience that will help cement the knowledge they've absorbed.
Of course! You still have access to the official course labs, the same as if you were in the classroom.
With a few exceptions, online testing is included. For more information on your specific case, please get in touch.
To sign up for the OIL delivery option, please contact us so we can make the necessary arrangements.
"We have trained during the coronavirus outbreak and the firebrand team really deserve a massive amount of recognition for remaining focused and in good spirits during a difficult time. Course content is on point as I have seen on previous courses. I have extended the training out to my teams within my organisation as it is a trusted brand throughout our departments. The offsite approach works really well. This is my second course with a 3rd booked in 8 weeks."

"The instructor, Dimitrios, was very knowledgeable, professional and simply brilliant with the explanations and demonstrations of the various testing tools including troubleshooting any student installation issues. We used the remote OIL service and it was like being in the classroom with regards to using the labs and viewing the course presentation slides. The course went ahead despite the UK Gov lockdown guidance on COVID-19, Firebrand provided access via the Online Instructor-Led OIL service. I didn’t have to rearrange leave and could study as planned - fantastic service, well done Firebrand!"

"Due to COVID-19, the course was done online via Microsoft Teams, so couldn’t get the full experience. However, was still very interesting and insightful. The person running the online course, Sam Owen, was fantastic. Delivering the course brilliantly, remaining entertaining throughout, and overcoming unforeseen issues as and when they occurred."

"Even in this time of unknown and constant change, Firebrand were still able to put on a competent course virtually with an equal amount of freedom and support we would have in a normal classroom."

"My experience with Firebrand training has been incredibly positive. Although I feel I may have had a better experience attending training on premises, I feel the trainer made the best of a very unique situation we are all faced with. The delivery of the content was on point and covered everything we needed to know. If there were any additional questions, the trainer was always available to talk and answer anything we raised through demonstration and screen share. At the start of this course, I felt I had a very low level of general and Azure networking knowledge. Thanks to the support of the trainer, I now feel empowered to not only explore this further but also to take the certified exam shortly. Thank you for a great experience, I will certainly be taking a firebrand course again."
