"I re-attended the course online after having attended the classroom based program initially. Enjoyed the session, although very content based, the tutor was good at covering all topics and had the chance to go over it again as revision. Would definitely attend future courses with Firebrand and select the same instructor. Very knowledgeable and thorough with his explanation. Made us think differently throughout the course."
Mohan Simkhada, EOL IT Services. (18/6/2021 (Friday) to 20/6/2021 (Sunday))

"Facilities at training Center are exceptional. We don’t need to worry about anything and can fully concentrate on learning."
