"Very satisfied with overall course content and accommodation."
B.V. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (4/4/2016 to 9/4/2016)

"Prior to the LPIC course I had very limited knowledge on the subject and was therefore, quite anxious about starting with a bootcamp. This however, was short lived as the training I received from the instructor was clear, concise, aimed at my level and therefore easy to understand. This will enable me to perform my daily job better and have the confidence to build on the course. In addition, the trainer made the course interesting, fun and a joy to be a part of. There is nothing more refreshing than being taught a subject from someone who has such enthusiasm and passion to which the instructor has bundles of."
Robert Ross, MOD - Hereford Garrison. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (13/4/2015 to 18/4/2015)

"Firebrand is an excelent learning environment that builds you up for success. Having a boot camp that caters to learning, accommodation, food and internet takes the emphasis from the student so that I can concentrate on the subject in order to pass. The instructor was amazing with an excellent approach to learning and teaching. She is so knowledgeable and backs that up with good instruction and an approachable personality."
Keith Baker, MOD - Hereford Garrison. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (13/4/2015 to 18/4/2015)

Pete Uttley. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (20/6/2011 to 25/6/2011)

"It's not a boot camp or a brain dump. The course is hard work (the only night I got to bed before midnight was the Sunday before the course started) but it's down to you to make the commitment to work. Don't expect an easy ride, the environment makes things easier but you have to put in the work."
P.H.. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (18/10/2010 to 23/10/2010)

"The Firebrand Training instructor is exceptionally good with Linux with a wealth of knowledge on both linux and Windows. It was quite a bit of fun working with and learning from someone who could work on a system from debugging a filesystem to giving us a step by step - visual breakdown of how the linux OS boots up. I have never enjoyed a course more."
P.M. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (22/3/2010 to 27/3/2010)

"Being a self funder, cost was obviously a very important factor to me. Overall, the whole experience was exceptional value for money and, indeed, very effective use of time. The company tag line (Immerse, Accelerate, Measure) is very well executed and leaves one feeling satisfied, with everyone concerned delivering on this promise very effectively. A very wholesome experience."
Paul A. Cheshire, Available for work. CV at http://www.nobillgates.co.uk. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (1/6/2009 to 6/6/2009)

"The balance of lecture and hands-on lab exercises is well balanced for both novices and experienced users. It not only covered what was needed to attain certification but also touched on areas and approaches that even I was unaware off. In all a concentrated week-long course provided the necessary focus that is not readily available when doing on-site or non-instructor lead training."
Colin Hillman. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (1/6/2009 to 6/6/2009)

TB, Herefordshire Council. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (7/7/2008 to 13/7/2008)

Carrick Mortimer. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (26/5/2008 to 1/6/2008)

"The instructor's real world experience and knowledge of the highest calibre made this a memorable, enjoyable and extremely worthwhile experience. This is a tough course but, combined with the accomodation and services available, Firebrand provide an excellent opportunity to tackle it. If you're new to Linux, make sure that you do the pre-reading as a minimum and do as much additional preparation as possible to familiarise yourself with the topics covered. It will be worth the effort. "
Derek James, Contractor. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (26/5/2008 to 1/6/2008)

Wayne Groenendaal. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (26/5/2008 to 1/6/2008)

"The regime is grueling and enough to send you a bit mad if you are not certain of what you are in for. However, it is undoubtly a worthwhile experience, with such a vast amount of information to be had. An experience I will not forget I think, and certainly worth the time."
Matt Williams, Lindsworth School. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (3/3/2008 to 9/3/2008)

"All in all, I could not have asked for a more satisfying course. I have taken with me all I need to know. "

Lee Beazley. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (20/2/2006 to 26/2/2006)

Carl Parkinson. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (23/1/2006 to 29/1/2006)

Richard Steele, Local Government. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (23/1/2006 to 29/1/2006)

Excellent staff and quality trainers will give you more than 100% while you are with them - if you don't succeed then I doubt very much it will be their fault! I thought it was a "shove the knowledge in and get them out the door" kind of place - I am happy to be wrong. Excellent tuition gives you all you need to get on with the job - and certification to boot!"
James Dennett. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (11/4/2005 to 17/4/2005)

Alan Paterson, Diamond Power Specialty Ltd. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (11/4/2005 to 17/4/2005)

"If you like a challenge its the best environment to learn. The instructor was a fountain of knowledge. I have never learned so much in one week before. Its got to be a must for those who need to learn and have not the time for long drawn out courses. Tough work but so worth it."
Jonathan Dade, ridgeway computers. - CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI (Level 1) (6 days) (16/5/2005 to 22/5/2005)
