Reviews

Here's the Firebrand Training review section. Since 2001 we've trained exactly 67,286 students and asked them all to review our Accelerated Learning. Currently, 96.63% have said Firebrand exceeded their expectations:



"A fantastic intensive course that will cover installation and configuration. Don't expect it to be easy but DO expect it to be informative. Our instructor balanced real-world examples alongside the theoretical that enabled key technologies to simply Click. With sufficient pre-study this course would be the icing on the cake, as-it-were, and be a gateway into Microsoft certification. Recommended."
Robert Walker. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (11 days) (8/2/2018 to 18/2/2018)

"It was great to be in an environment with minimal distractions to enable me to achieve the objectives of this course so quickly. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and the accommodation is clean and comfortable. The food was excellent and the training rooms were well equipped with modern equipment."
J.C., James T. Blakeman & Co. Ltd.. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (11 days) (8/2/2018 to 18/2/2018)

"Training was great as usual. Feeling very prepared for my exam. Thanks to the instructor for all the great training, and to Firebrand once again."
Kristian Ward, Switch Networks Ltd. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (11 days) (8/2/2018 to 18/2/2018)

"Firebrand has delivered another great course at Wyboston and honestly Ive learnt so much while being on this course its almost unreal. The last module has blown my mind with its depth. I definitely recommend this course to anyone who is starting their IT journey. Also OPS were awesome "
Steven Rincon. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (11 days) (8/2/2018 to 18/2/2018)

"As long a you can handle the fierceness of the course, I would recommend this to any one who just wants to get on!"
Simon Fenwick, Staysure. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (11 days) (8/2/2018 to 18/2/2018)

"The course was everything that I expected and more. The instructor made the subjects easy and simple to understand. "
Anonymous - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (11 days) (7/12/2017 to 17/12/2017)

"Having studied at firebrand previously I was eager to return for the MCSA Server 2016 course. The learning environment and proximity of hotel at the Wyboston site suited me well. If you never find time to study at work or in your personal time then firebrand provide the perfect environment for both learning and passing exams, and all without taking too much time away from work."
Anonymous - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (11 days) (12/10/2017 to 22/10/2017)

"A fantastic course with a great instructor. Worth every penny."
Daniel De La Flor. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (11 days) (12/10/2017 to 22/10/2017)

"The training is very good. It is not passive, so you have to work hard, but you get all the key information you need to build upon - with your own reading and revision adding the extra insight needed for the exam. My expectation before the course was that I might pass one of the three exams, but I soon realised that if I was prepared to work in the evenings as the instructor encouraged us all to, then I could get through them all (so far Ive passed 2 with one more this afternoon!). It was up to me now. Having passed an MCP in server 2003 through self-study - which took nearly 12 months - I was very impressed with how much you can learn when able to get the answers you need from a subject matter expert and how quickly you can get through a single exam - a matter of a few days. The labs were also very useful for getting hands-on experience and testing out what you had learned during the day. In terms of the accommodation and food, it was excellent - a small issue with my shower was fixed within hours and the staff are all friendly and very professional. You get a very good choice of food and if you prefer a low carb diet like myself then thats no problem. If you prefer to relax in the evening then there is a decent bar where you can take some time out with your new friends. "
Ben Kane, Euro Recycling. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (11 days) (24/6/2017 to 4/7/2017)

Matthew Ottley, Manuli Hydraulics UK Ltd. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (11 days) (24/6/2017 to 4/7/2017)

Jamie H., Watchfinder&co. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (11 days) (24/6/2017 to 4/7/2017)

"Firebrand provide an ideal training that shortens the length of the time that the training takes whilst providing all the required content. The course was delivered with a smile and a laugh. "
Tim Headicar. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (11 days) (11/2/2017 to 21/2/2017)

Anonymous - Microsoft Programming in C# (4 days) (3/4/2018 to 6/4/2018)

"- Trainer was excellent, very knowledgeable and good at explaining concepts, very helpful when it came to clarifying things. - While the days were long, the frequent breaks ensured concentration could be maintained (infinite coffee also helped with this!) - Accommodation was excellent - Food and drink were excellent!
