"The training is great and extremely informative. The only downside is the amount of information that has to be processed in a short amount of time. This is why it is good that you don't feel forced to take the exam straight afterwards, you are able to go away and then come back and take when you're ready."

Ryan Towle, Twenty Four IT. - CompTIA A+ & Network+ (7 days) (16/5/2016 to 22/5/2016)
I did CompTIA A+ and Network+ in 7 days and really loved it. I could not do this by myself at home, that's why i did choose this option. I have to be honest, it was a lot to learn but you won't get distracted and that worked perfect for me. I finished my CompTIA A+ (2 modules) and passed the exams. I also failed my N+ because i had not enough knowledge about networking and couldn't remember all the material i had to learn. But i tried it because i believed i could do it. Too bad i missed it by small amount of points. So now i am learning in the Netherlands so that i can retake the exam. I can only say DO IT and sign up. I will get the last exam and then i will sign myself on for another course! I like this way of teaching! Thanks to the instructor for teaching us everything. Boy what a knowledge this man has. :)"

A.P, Network support engineer. - CompTIA A+ & Network+ (7 days) (26/10/2015 to 1/11/2015)
"I have done 3 courses with firebrand so far and would recommend it to anyone who is looking to certify in IT. The environment was clean and tidy, and everything was provided for.
The Instructors knew there topics inside out and could explain anything without any hesitation or having to look elsewhere for the answer, or a "i'll come back to you on that". The information was given in a way that was easy to understand at any level of competency or prior knowledge and they didn't mind going over the same topic multiple times if needed even at 10pm!
Courseware was provided and was of a good standard in advance of the course so you could prepare if you feel you needed too. Materials and equipment provided on the course were also very good.
The accommodation was more than adequate and i can honestly say i did not go hungry as three course meals were provided three times a day.
All in all, the only thing you need to do is turn up.
Thank you Firebrand.

"I wasn't expecting much of myself when i signed up to the accelerated learning course. I thought cramming all the information needed into such a small amount of time would be too much for me to handle, and that I'd start worrying and never actually pass the exams.
Fortunately, Firebrand are as good as they say they are. My instructor helped me to get an understanding of the areas of IT that I didn't really have a grasp on. I found the classes to be incredibly well planned, and that there wasn't actually too much information being crammed into me. The instructor is a great guy, and I'm incredibly thankful to both him and Firebrand for getting me through these exams. I quite simply couldn't have done it without them."
