Overview

"Without a doubt the best training experience I ever had." Suleyman Kandanli (Firebrand CompTIA certified)

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online Strata courses
  2. You'll be Strata certified in just 2 days. With us, you’ll be Strata trained in record time
  3. Our Strata course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass Strata 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
