"Good 4-day training. All the AWS services were covered in a good pace. There was time for Q&A so everyone could share some questions or experiences. Overall great experience!"

"Excellent course so much in-depth information passed on. Excellent instructor - course was intensive no doubt about it. But will be back later in 2020 for some more education. "
Adele Reed. (3/8/2020 (Monday) to 6/8/2020 (Thursday))

"I would like to thank the instructors and Firebrand staff who have made my experience here great despite current Covid climates. This has been one of the best courses I have been on and I am grateful for the instructor to be teaching it. The course was very intense - make no mistake, it is not a course that you should just turn up to and assume you will pass - it requires effort, but the instructor helped and explained everything I was struggling with. I have no doubt I wouldnt have the passed the exam without the instructor's assistance and guidance. Another point here I would like to add, I know remote working is probably the future, but on-site learning cannot be beaten, it lets you stay focused and concentrate - key requirements for this course."
Martin Barrow. (11/5/2020 (Monday) to 17/5/2020 (Sunday))

"Intensive deep knowledge training by a very positive and motivated trainer. The instructor really helped me get my head around AWS, and define solid basements for the certification. Outstanding flexibility & creativity facing the audiance as he needed to face strong network/security guys of the same company, with weak system/db background."
B.B., Orange Cyber Defense. (13/7/2020 (Monday) to 16/7/2020 (Thursday))

"2nd experience with Firebrand, and with no doubts these are one of the highest quality trainings I ever attended. "
