For the information technology professional, Security+ certification training delivers a foundational proficiency in the network security arena. Security+ Certificants are better able and positioned to support small and medium-sized organizations that are at increased risk of cyber crime and other forms of security-related threats.

Certificants may now apply the CompTIA Security+ certification towards the Microsoft MCSA and MCSE Security designations.

Arm Your Workforce with Security+ Certification

Neither technologies nor policies alone offer effective protection against theft and destruction of intellectual property. So, what's your defence? Knowledge. All industries need a trained and effective IT workforce to combat hackers, attackers and security threats. Maintain the integrity of your organization's communications, infrastructure and operations. Certify your IT workforce today.

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.

"Firebrands accelerated learning courses are great. They are intense and very thorough - but for a lot of people that's exactly what you need, in order to minimize the time away from work/family and cover all the content required as fast as possible. I highly recommend pre-reading & revising the syllabus before attending if you intend to sit the exam. Staff are friendly & the centre is lovely to stay at, would recommend 100%"

"I think there should be more questions on this - saying what you think of trainer/course/accommodation/company. I think you're all great though - thank you for always being so lovely and helpful and I'm still yet to have a trainer I don't like, so I think that's good :) "
Laura Dean, Utilita. - CompTIA Security+ Certification (3 days) (20/12/2017 to 22/12/2017)

"The instructor was one of the best teachers I had the pleasure to learn with. He explained everything in a clear manner and made sure everyone understood the material. He is definitely the reason I passed the certification. Although the course was accelerated I was following everything and Gareth took time to explain more complicated modules, which I found very helpful. I will definitely be coming back to Firebrand and hope he will be the one teaching then! The course in its entirety was very enjoyable and really useful. I would definitely do it again and I recommend it to anyone that wants to learn fast and retain the knowledge!"
Grazyna Dzwigala. - CompTIA Security+ Certification (3 days) (25/10/2017 to 27/10/2017)

"I was reticent to do a boot camp but it wasn't as scary as it sounded and I loved the pace! Rather than spending time faffing between home and course, you could stay in one place and access the training and resources as much as needed. Really love the set up and will definitely come back for another course."

"The course was great. Lots of information to take in,but the pace was definitely manageable. Gareth was friendly and answered any questions asked! Food is also a bonus! I would 100% recommend that anyone doing these courses does the pre-reading as it was massively helpful to do this. Rather than having to learn everything on the course which would have been full-on, you could use the course to fill in any holes in your knowledge."
