"Tough but I got 5 out of the 7 passes and a wealth of knowledge. Very happy. "
S.G. (17/5/2010 (Monday) to 30/5/2010 (Sunday))

"The MCSE certification course was a lot harder then I expected. But the environment makes for a perfect setting to immerse yourself in learning. The food was wonderful and the staff are very friendly."
Martin Croft, KPS Business Solutions Ltd. (17/5/2010 (Monday) to 30/5/2010 (Sunday))

"Firebrand Training to me is one of the best training centres I ever come across in my life. The environment is exclusively convenient for learning, confortable and all state of the earth facilities. The training classrooms, the lecturers, the support staff are just very efficient and helpful. The only place one can go and within a short period of time becomes a professional in his or her field of study is Firebrand Training. I therefore strongly recommend anyone, especially those in my country, The Gambia,West Africa to try Firebrand for professional success."
Bisenty Mendy, MRC. (17/5/2010 (Monday) to 30/5/2010 (Sunday))

"Ey up! My two weeks at Firebrand on the MCSE/Win7 course were very positive, the methods used to build knowledge over the two weeks were excellent. Pace was high but not too fast, though you would struggle if you had little knowledge/experience prior to attending. Instructor was excellent, pushed you when you needed pushing but allowed you time to relax if/when it was needed. Some good banter helped everyone relax which made a creative learning environment. It was also good to see "Braindumping" techniques were actively discouraged, I actually came away having learnt a lot not just how to pass an exam. Thanks to our instructor."
Peter Bush. (17/5/2010 (Monday) to 30/5/2010 (Sunday))

"Be prepared for a hard two weeks. It is challenging both mentally and physically. Great instructors provide solid foundations for a successful course. Your level of knowledge will increase and hopefully you will go away with the qualifications / knowledge you desire, I did! I chose Firebrand as a colleague had been on a previous course. If someone has a good experience, there is no need to look for an alternative. I would definitely recommend Firebrand Training."
