Accredited Training Centre of the Year

Firebrand Training has again won the EC-Council Accredited Training Centre of the Year Award, from a Training Partner network that has more than 700 training centres across 107 countries. This extends a record-breaking run of successive awards to nine years.

Jay Bavisi, President of EC-Council said: “The annual EC-Council Awards highlights the commitment and achievements of our global partners and trainers that have contributed to the information security community.”

EC-Council's CCISO certification is accredited by the American National Standard Institute (ANSI). Organisations with ANSI accreditation are required to undergo stringent quality reviews and assessments. EC-Council is one of just a handful of certification bodies to achieve ANSI accreditation.
