"Good course. Interactive lab challenges were useful to test knowledge. I think the course would have been improved if there were more challenges. The instructor was enthusiastic and helpful."
Connor Gilroy. (15/10/2018 (Monday) to 17/10/2018 (Wednesday))

"Firebrand handle everything very well."
Darnte Cranston, HP. (9/5/2016 (Monday) to 11/5/2016 (Wednesday))

"Excellent instruction and facilities"
Richard Vernon. (29/6/2020 (Monday) to 2/7/2020 (Thursday))

"The thought of attending a 4 day ISACA CISM course remotely due to COVID-19 did concern me. However my concerns were unfounded as I gained as much remotely as I would have on site, apart from the social side of course. The trainer is obviously very knowledgeable and is a good effective trainer in my opinion. I can't fault the course, arrangements or the trainer. I will be booking my exam shortly and will definitely consider Firebrand Training for future courses such as CISSP. Thank you."
Sam Wright, Tendring District Council. (29/6/2020 (Monday) to 2/7/2020 (Thursday))

"Great experience with great instructor."
