"Firebrand are the best training provider that I've encountered. However, be prepared for long days, lack of sleep, and absorbing massive quantities of information."
Simon Christmas, Data Interchange. (4/7/2011 to 9/7/2011)

"A good course, even though our priorities were different and wanted to focus more on pratical work. Our needs were accommodated and supported in more Lab work than just passing an exam which helped give us a good understanding of BI. A very intense, exam-focused course which will give you the best possible chance to pass and get certified. The instructor knows his stuff and we couldn't have asked for a better tutor. Thanks again!"
Tim OKeeffe. (7/2/2011 to 12/2/2011)

"I got what I came for .... certification.... I got it because of the Firebrand immersion technique and a fantastic instructor ... although he says it was me that did the work ?!?"
A.P.. (8/11/2010 to 13/11/2010)

"The amount of knowledge attained and I manage to keep in my head afterwards is superior to all other courses I have attained from other vendors"
Christopher Gray. (6/9/2010 to 11/9/2010)

"Intensive but well worthwhile. I learned a great deal."
Stephen Rael, Advantage Business Systems. (6/9/2010 to 11/9/2010)
