"This was my first time using Firebrand to attend an online instructor-led course and the entire experience has been extremely positive. Would certainly recommend Firebrand for future training!"

"I was not sure how this course was going to help me considering I had read three different books but the course content is pitched at the right level to ensure that you have enough to pass the course. The instructor was on hand for most of the day and evening and always happy to help with any questions. We took our course in a hotel who ensured that we had everything we needed including all the food we could eat. Firebrand is an excellent company and I would have no hesitation coming back on future courses and in recommending them to others."
