"I attended the az-203 course at Firebrand, not very sure what to expect as this was my first training with the company. The environment is simply amazing. My instructor was a legend. He gave real life examples with every single concept made difficult task look extremely easy and I'm keen to attend other classes taught by him. He made the time fly so easily as he captured us throughout the lecture.If you need a place from home that feels like home to study, Firebrand is the place to go. Thank you guys, Ill definitely be back again."
Emmanuel Fabelurin, Rufus Leonard. (1/10/2019 to 4/10/2019)

"Highly recommend Firebrand to anyone wanting to up-skill. My trainer is one of the most knowledgeable I met in the subject. Good to know that Firebrand looks after the best to spread the knowledge! Accommodation conditions are great for the purpose, the food is good and the staff very friendly."
Luis Coelho. (1/10/2019 to 4/10/2019)

"Fantastic teaching but very intensive. Perhaps not for everyone but very effective with enough hard work.. Preparation recommended!"
Matt Arnold, New Signature UK. (1/10/2019 to 4/10/2019)

"Instructor was very technical and we managed to go through all the materials. It is a good training overall. "
Sofi ul Alam, ANACAPFP. (1/10/2019 to 4/10/2019)

"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. "
Hugh Mullally, Self-Employed. (1/7/2019 to 4/7/2019)
