"If like me you are distracted by the day to day operations of your job this is the only way to get qualified." Mark Wright (Firebrand Dynamics certified)

Six reasons why you should sit your Sure Step course with Firebrand Training

  1. You’ll be Sure Step trained in just 2 days. With us, you’ll be Sure Step trained in record time
  2. Our Sure Step course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. You’ll learn more Sure Step. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  4. You’ll learn Sure Step faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  5. You’ll be studying Sure Step with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 75,903 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  6. You'll do more than study Sure Step courseware. We use labs and case studies to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging
