"Firebrand have a great facilities and staff. We have invested significantly this year in training for all out production staff and they have all come away with positive comments. Lucid developers will be coming back again."
Adrian Lloyd-Owen, Lucid Partnership LLP. - Microsoft MTA Software Development Fundamentals (2 days) (8/11/2018 to 9/11/2018)

"A lot of information to take in 2 days, but it came to no shock as that what was expected, and what I signed up for. I do believe I would benefit more if the course was delivered in 3 days rather than two. That way we could put into practice what we had learnt. We didn't have much time to do actual coding, but it was a great starting point and gave me the boost I needed. The instructor was knowledgeable in the field and answered any questions I had. "
