"The instructor was first class and he has prepared me well for the exams. Firebrand have made me feel welcome and comfortable within an intense study environment."
Thomas Mawdsley, Clever Adviser. (25/4/2016 to 29/4/2016)
"I have trained with Firebrand before, the "boot camp" ethos suits my situation and I have never failed to take value back to my everyday work. The ISTQB course is very in-depth and pre-reading is essential, I would suggest trying to ensure the books are delivered at least a couple of weeks before the course. The instruction, as always, was exceptional and littered with real-life scenarios, which helped to put the content into perspective. "
G.A. (10/9/2012 to 14/9/2012)
"Firebrand is an extreme way of learning and not for the faint hearted. If you put the effort in, you will learn a lot in a short space of time. The team are very friendly and work very hard and long hours to help you get as much of your course as possible."
