Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be CFR certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be CFR trained in record time
  2. Our CFR course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass CFR 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
