Firebrand goes digital

We’re currently migrating from printed to digital courseware. Some courseware is already available in digital, while other books remain in printed form. To find out if this course is digital, call us on 080 80 800 888.

There are several benefits of easy-to-use digital courseware: downloads are immediate, and you’ll always have your courseware available wherever you are. You won’t need to wait for a printed book to be delivered before you start learning – and it’s better for the environment. You can choose to download the courseware to your own device, or borrow one of ours.

Considering a Microsoft course? Always have the most up-to-date Microsoft digital courseware with ‘Fresh Editions’. This gives you access to all versions of digital courseware – you’ll receive updates and revisions of your textbook, at no charge, for the life of that course.

"I had been planning to undertake my CCSP certification for some time and had even considered going directly to ICS2 to purchase the course and undertake self-study. I approached Firebrand and initially was put off by the cost of the course. Eventually, I decided to take the plunge and take part in the course. The whole experience of Firebrand and the course has been exceptional. I spent a week at the training centre where I met many other Professional IT folk in similar situations as myself of varying skillsets. The quality of the accommodation and food has exceeded my expectations, the course materials and delivery of the training was also exceptional. The trainer is exceptional in her experience and was able to control the training group and keep us all engaged at all times. The format of the training course was well planned and thought out. The training sessions were ideal in length with breaks to keep us motivated and engaged with question sessions between each domain to keep our minds active and the constant flow of information. I would recommend Firebrand as a training provider to anyone wishing to extend their learning and achieve certifications. All staff are professional and pleasant to deal with as well as the cleaning staff whom retain the upkeep of the rooms in the Willows centre. I stayed in one of the newer rooms and was very impressed with the quality and comfort of the room. My only criticism is the wireless, its rubbish. This was reported during the course and highlighted to the staff on various occasions. In fairness, Firebrand took this seriously and worked to address the situation. "

Anonymous, Bedford Hospital. - Microsoft MTA: Windows Server Administration Fundamentals (3 days) (1/7/2019 to 3/7/2019)

"The instructor was excellent, he delivered essentially very dry material with clarity and wit. He clearly has great experience in Azure, and was able to support the course with real-life war-stories which brought the course to life. My only criticism is that I would have liked to see more time devoted to the labs, but that was probably hard given the material that was covered. I am looking forward to using the knowledge I gained in the course soon. I really like the immersive nature of the training, with the hotel and restaurant only being two minutes away. 24 hour access was a good idea. The accommodation and food were very good. "
