Firebrand goes digital

We’re currently migrating from printed to digital courseware. Some courseware is already available in digital, while other books remain in printed form. To find out if this course is digital, call us on 080 80 800 888.

There are several benefits of easy-to-use digital courseware: downloads are immediate, and you’ll always have your courseware available wherever you are. You won’t need to wait for a printed book to be delivered before you start learning – and it’s better for the environment. You can choose to download the courseware to your own device, or borrow one of ours.

Considering a Microsoft course? Always have the most up-to-date Microsoft digital courseware with ‘Fresh Editions’. This gives you access to all versions of digital courseware – you’ll receive updates and revisions of your textbook, at no charge, for the life of that course.

The course was meant to assist me in the company-wide deployment of a Microsoft product and it definitely will aid in this regard. The instructor was brilliant, not only in presenting the information in a clear and consise manner, but making sure the aspects were grasped easily by way of excellent day-to-day real-life illustrations. Overall, the experience of Firebrand Training will be very effective in the development of our company and more importantly myself. We will definitely use Firebrand again for any future training."

Ryan Davies. - Microsoft MCTS Windows 7 Install & Configuration (4 days) (4/10/2010 to 6/10/2010)

"This is a fantastic experience. Prepare well and buckle down for your time there, you'll seldom have access to such expertise. Be sure to take a few days off afterwards to recover. You'll deserve it after your achievements at Firebrand."
C.C. - Microsoft MCTS Windows 7 Install & Configuration (4 days) (1/2/2010 to 3/2/2010)

Anonymous, Bedford Hospital. - Microsoft MTA: Windows Server Administration Fundamentals (3 days) (1/7/2019 to 3/7/2019)

"The instructor was excellent, he delivered essentially very dry material with clarity and wit. He clearly has great experience in Azure, and was able to support the course with real-life war-stories which brought the course to life. My only criticism is that I would have liked to see more time devoted to the labs, but that was probably hard given the material that was covered. I am looking forward to using the knowledge I gained in the course soon. I really like the immersive nature of the training, with the hotel and restaurant only being two minutes away. 24 hour access was a good idea. The accommodation and food were very good. "

Being in a class full of people who are there to achieve the same goal is great motivation that would not have existed if you were learning on your own."
