Introducing Online Instructor-Led Training | Firebrand OIL

Please head to this page for more information.

At Firebrand, we are committed to helping you achieve your certification as fast as possible, and we’re determined to keep this promise throughout these difficult times. In an effort to accommodate students who are presently unable to attend classes, we are offering an online alternative for attending courses during this period. One way or another, we’ll get you certified.

What is Firebrand OIL?

OIL is short for Online Instructor-Led training. We have put this solution together to allow any students affected by travel restrictions to attend courses and get certified.
Firebrand OIL uses Cisco Webex to deliver a rich, interactive Virtual Classroom experience and immerse students in learning, emulating the physical experience as closely as possible. The platform allows for multimedia lectures and hands-on experience.

What courses can I attend online?

All of our courses will have the Online Instructor-Led option available. Until further notice, all our courses will continue to be simultaneously delivered in-classroom and online.

How does Online Instructor-Led work?

Simply book your course as usual and our training experts will get you set up with the Cisco Webex platform. Once set up, you'll just need to dial in and join the Virtual Classroom on Webex. Once there, from your dashboard you'll have access to:

  • Live instructor view on camera, including whiteboard
  • Course slides and demonstrations straight from the instructor's computer
  • Classroom audio including onsite questions from fellow students
  • Online tools to ask and answer questions, follow demonstrations and create annotations
  • Group chat to discuss topics in real-time

What equipment/software do I need in order to attend an online course?

There are no special requirements. All you need to attend is:

  • A desktop or laptop capable of running Webex (requirements can be found here)
  • A headset and microphone (a webcam is recommended, but not mandatory)
  • A stable broadband connection

Do I still get the courseware?

As most courseware today is digital, you'll receive all course materials in your inbox. In case any of the courses require physical materials, these will be sent to you by mail before the course.

What about the certification exam?

Online testing is included, with a few exceptions. Please contact us for more information on your specific case.

How do I sign up for the Online Instructor-Led option?

To sign up for the OIL option, please contact us so we can make the necessary arrangements.

Can I still attend my course in the training centre?

In short, yes. Until further notice, our courses will continue to be simultaneously delivered in-classroom at our UK training centre. You can find the most up-to-date about Firebrand operations on this page.

That said, we are following official guidelines. As the situation develops, we kindly ask you to observe any restrictions in your region. If you have fever, cough, or any other symptoms, please follow official advice and stay at home.
