Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be Project+ certified in just 7 days. With us, you’ll be Project+ trained in record time
  2. Our Project+ course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass Project+ first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  4. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  5. You’ll learn Project+ faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  6. You’ll be studying Project+ with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 74,634 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study Firebrand's courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging

The mean compensation for project managers in the United States is now $87,807. Project Managers on the West Coast fare even better, with mean salaries of almost $103,600. Overall, those who have received project management certification through professional associations earn about $5,000 a year more than those without certifications.

Individuals

Having proof of your skills and knowledge gives you the edge over other candidates when you're applying for a job, providing:

  • Proof of professional achievement
  • Better job opportunities
  • A viable career path
  • Foundational knowledge for additional certifications

Companies

Certification provides companies with skilled employees, leading to:

  • Increasing customer satisfaction & repeat business
  • Simplified recruiting and hiring
  • Lower training costs
  • Greater customer satisfaction
  • Measurable competence standards

According to a recent survey developed by RHI Consulting, 23 percent of CIOs named project management as the area in which their staffs could use the most improvement.

Human Resources

  • Employer-funded training and certification programs are a key to retaining skilled IT staff. Career development and advancement opportunities are shown to significantly reduce rates of employee turnover.
  • Certification Training Programs provide benchmarks for hiring and promotion decisions by accurately assessing technical skills.
  • For-certification training programs maximize educational investments through immediate validation of skills.

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a Certification Guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
