M.C. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (2016.10.17 to 2016.10.22)

He was all about teaching us and also in a way guiding us to make sure we don't rush things. "
R.K. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (2016.10.17 to 2016.10.22)

Jonathan Walsh. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (2016.2.1 to 2016.2.6)

Jerome Wentzel, AMAC Aerospace Switzerland. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (2015.7.20 to 2015.7.25)

Daniel Fadil. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (2015.7.20 to 2015.7.25)
"The course was well formatted to align with the exams. Labs and course material was very good."

Kalpesh Bharadwa, Annodata Ltd. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (2015.7.20 to 2015.7.25)
"I attended Firebrand Training Center in Wyboston Lakes twice and on both occasions found the experience very rewarding. The environment is very conducive to concentrating on the material and learning the course. The hours are long and the material is covered quickly so you need a basic understanding of the topic beforehand. The labs are very good for putting into practice what you have learned. I would of liked a bit more time at night for self study and go over any areas I wasnt sure about. Overall the experience was good and the instructor really knows the material. "
Mark Kivlehan, Creditfix. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (2015.4.27 to 2015.5.2)

Craig Boydell, First Quantum Minerals. - Microsoft MCSE: Server Infrastructure (6 days) (2013.10.7 to 2013.10.12)
"This is the 4th course I have attended with Firebrand. As with all of the other courses, I have been impressed by the facilities and the instructor. Everything really is in place to help you learn a subject matter in a short time.
All you need to bring along is the commitment to put in a lot of hard work. These accelerated learning courses really do work, but are not for the faint hearted. Be prepared to burn the candle at both ends if you want to get the best out the course. The instructor as ever was very knowledgeable and was always available to assist with specific questions or problems. I thoroughly recommend Firebrand to any one who wants to get the most out of their valuable time and is willing to put in the hard work."

"Great place to come if like me you cant sit at home and read through a book, as it just does not go in. I came here having read books and have learnt a lot in the 6 days I was here. The classrooms are quite a nice environment and if you get a good trainer then it makes the whole thing better. The days are long and a bit of a slog at times getting in at 8/8.30 and then leaving at 9. Obviously there are breaks in between but still long days and don't sleep much. Overall a great experience and will definitely be using Firebrand for training again. "
