"Initially thought i would struggle with the Bootcamp method. Dave Petts was able to keep the attention of the group and provide an all round relaxed but intensive learning process."
Rich Bridle. (15/9/2014 to 20/9/2014)

"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 to 27/10/2019)

"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 to 27/10/2019)

"Great facilities, good trainer, course content adequate to give candidates a good chance of passing exams."
A.S.. (20/10/2019 to 27/10/2019)

"Both staff and tutors are very accommodating and friendly and they make what may seem quite a daunting process as easy as possible. "
D.B.. (18/10/2019 to 20/10/2019)
