"Excellent facilities. Excellent instructor."
Christopher Hopkins. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2012 (8 days) (28/4/2013 to 5/5/2013)
"An excellent way to train and sit exams"
L.M. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2012 (8 days) (28/4/2013 to 5/5/2013)
"Knowledgeable tutors, helpful staff and a great learning experience. "
M.P. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2012 (8 days) (28/4/2013 to 5/5/2013)
"The course was intense and not for the feint of heart. The staff was exceptionally professional and the accommodation perfectly suitable. I would be sure to inform anyone that sleep becomes an optional luxury during the course as it is intense and one needs to digest a massive amount of material in a very short time.
Our instructor, Phil Chapman, was stellar. He is by far and away - one of if not the best - instructor I have had on any training course. He teaches with real world (and humorous) analogies to help one digest and understand the concepts he is teaching.
I would recommend some pre-study if you have been away from the technology for any long length of time."
Stephanie Gaudreau. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2012 (8 days) (28/4/2013 to 5/5/2013)
"You definitely learn fast, so fast you dont understand the quantity of what you have actually learned until you take a step back and realize that you have been taught an impossible amount in the time you are. Days are long and you WILL work hard but if you want to achieve you will.
Our trainer provided his credentials to be a trainer at the beginning of the course which showed me that he is definitely well qualified to teach at a far far higher level his methods were incredible."
Karl Timmis. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2012 (8 days) (28/4/2013 to 5/5/2013)
"I had an excellent experience at Firebrand and it was well worth the money. The facilities were excellent and the training was well delivered. I would certainly consider attending another course. "
Lucy Ashton. - Microsoft MCSA: Windows Server 2012 (8 days) (28/4/2013 to 5/5/2013)
