"Course was great, learned a lot in my nine days but it is hard work."
Stephen Thomson, Unifrax Ltd. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web and Windows Applications Training (9 days) (14/7/2008 to 22/7/2008)

"A test of endurance at times, but well worth the effort."
Andrew Bewley. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web and Windows Applications Training (9 days) (14/7/2008 to 22/7/2008)

"Learning via Firebrand trainging is indeed very immersive and certainly accelerated. If you need to know a topic and you need to know it now then Firebrand is definately the training provider you should choose. It is not for the faint of heart... you have to sit an learn for the entire time you attend the camp... but that is an excellent way to get to know something quickly."
SD, Dolphin Music. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web and Windows Applications Training (9 days) (14/7/2008 to 22/7/2008)

"If you're pushed for time Firebrand will do their upmost to enable you to pass the Microsoft exams."
Antony Wiffen. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web and Windows Applications Training (9 days) (26/5/2008 to 3/6/2008)

"A poet could probably describe the experience better, but I'd start by saying the course was a relentless and torrential learning experience. From the day you arrive to the moment you leave, you are in a concentrated learning environment and you mind is assualted with education. I feel the use of aggressive adjectives is apt as you will learn, you will learn quickly and you don't have a choice in the matter, which is exceptional. Most people who require a course like this lead busy lives and don't have time away from work to learn new skills. It is ideal for the subject. I also wish that University was presented in a way like this. It would have been much more productive to complete a semester in 9 days than 6 months..."
Dustan Jones. - Microsoft MCTS .NET 2.0 - Web and Windows Applications Training (9 days) (14/4/2008 to 22/4/2008)

"The Firebrand Training process is definitely an experience. Extremely fast paced you learn a lot in a very short space of time. If you can read the Selfstudy guides for your course at least once before the course."
