"Very good and inclusive."
Delegate One, N/A. (29/11/2022 (Tuesday) to 2/12/2022 (Friday))

"The course material was comprehensive and well laid-out. The provision of accommodation and food allows you to focus entirely on studying which is ideal. The variety of resources available to reinforce the learning was also useful - reading material, labs and mock questions and exams, etc."
TC. (29/11/2022 (Tuesday) to 2/12/2022 (Friday))

"The training provided by Firebrand is very informative and delivered well. I would recommend it for anyone looking to receive a lot of knowledge in the topic in a short span of time. It is definitely intensive, but you are allowed to study and practice further at your own pace to take an exam when you are ready."
VA. (28/11/2022 (Monday) to 1/12/2022 (Thursday))

"My first course with Firebrand. Very knowledgeable instructor who explains all the topics extremely well. Good pace and easy to follow online."
SL. (28/11/2022 (Monday) to 1/12/2022 (Thursday))

"As usual, training instructor was excellent. OIL training can be tricky versus doing it in a classroom, but the instructor was really good at explaining the subject matter and making sure we understood what we were going through."
