"Gets you through the course, and the food was fab :-)."
Marc Birkett, NHS North of Tyne. (29/6/2009 (Monday) to 5/7/2009 (Sunday))

"The course was as I expected from reading the other testimonials - its hard hard work, but the facilities are second to none and the learning environment is ideal for such an intensive course. I would definitely recommend buying the books first and pre reading them before coming."
Chris Thompson, NHS. (29/6/2009 (Monday) to 5/7/2009 (Sunday))

"I was very impressed by the course and very much enjoyed my time. It is hard work without a doubt but definitely worth while and very interesting. If you are serious about training and working with your new skills I doubt there is a better company you could want to train with. I attended the course originally on a personal recommendation and I will definitely be passing on such a recommendation myself. All in all I did alot of hard work but feel I have gained some excellent skills at a very high level. Some training companies dont go into the more complex and interesting topics, this is not the case for Firebrand Training. They covered all the topics I will need in the real world and enabled me to pass my certification first time."
James Bloom, I am a contractor and curently on a training break (last contract was with BT). (6/4/2009 (Monday) to 12/4/2009 (Sunday))

"If I were to train for my MCTS Certification by self-study this would have taken me months! By taking Firebrand Training's intensive course has enabled me to stay entirely focused on the subject with absolutely no distractions. Perfect environment for total immersion. "
Simon Walker, SSP. (6/4/2009 (Monday) to 12/4/2009 (Sunday))

"They work you hard but its worth it."
