"My first time at Firebrand and very pleased. Need to go on a holiday now to rest by brain but it was exactly what it said on the tin with a residential intensive learning course.Keen to return soon on the CCNA Security or CCDA courses. Great facilities and learning environment encouraging the intensive learning. So impressed with the instructor, she is clearly very experienced and knows the subject giving a high level of trust and respect. I accept there wasn't much time for it, but some stories of experience in relation to the subject area along with the course would have been great. Hopefully see you again soon. "
