"Firebrand are well organised and their facilities, accommodation and training rooms are more than fit for purpose. The all-inclusive course represents good value and I would not hesitate to recommend to a friend or colleague, and have already done so!"
P.J., EDF Energy. (26/4/2021 (Monday) to 30/4/2021 (Friday))

"I find courses can be stressful. - Find the place, get there and home each day, Firebrand have one requirement - find their facility. From that point on they will handle all your needs completely. Taking that extra work away from you allows you to learn more freely than in other settings. They have high-quality management staff and instructors. They cover a wide range of valuable course. I've used them at least 6 times now and always look at their website first if an opportunity for training comes up through my employer."
Wayne Thompson, United Utilities. (26/4/2021 (Monday) to 30/4/2021 (Friday))

"Highly recommended. I completed the GICSP training, which Im confident has put me in a good place to take the exam. The instructor was very knowledgeable and delivered the training in a straightforward manner that was easy to digest. The environment was open and supported my many questions. I found Firebrand pleasant to work with, quick to respond, and wouldnt hesitate to use again."
