"The course and structured learning day is not an easy one (especially when you are on the 8 day course :) ). However the concept, facilities and teaching at Firebrand are fantastic. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting Oracle Accreditation and a thorough understanding of the subject matter."
Paul Andrews, Self employed. - Oracle Certified Professional & Administrator 11g (OCP & OCA 11g Rev. 2) (8 days) (4/9/2011 to 11/9/2011)

"I had a very intensive boot camp week together with a good crowd of colleague pupils and a great teacher. We worked (the teacher, too!) about 15 hours every day. I could never have achieved this level of understanding, and conformance with the way the exams were built, on my own. It wasn't cheap, but it was worth every penny."
Henrik Gillingstam, B3IT Consulting AB. - Oracle Certified Professional & Administrator 11g (OCP & OCA 11g Rev. 2) (8 days) (8/5/2011 to 15/5/2011)

S.H, no one. - Oracle Certified Professional & Administrator 10g (OCP & OCA 10g) (8 days) (7/6/2009 to 14/6/2009)

Hard work and long hours (but that's what we'd expect anyway on a course like this!) pay off when given proper direction and focus, which is what Firebrand Training offers.

IB. - Oracle Certified Professional & Administrator 10g (OCP & OCA 10g) (8 days) (8/9/2008 to 14/9/2008)

"Der Kurs ist sehr hart, sehr viel Wissen in sehr kurzer Zeit. 15-16 Stunden taeglich. Es ist sehr hilfreich breite Vorkenntnisse zu haben. Ein sehr grosser Vorteil ist, dass die Teacher Praxiserfahrung haben und wissen worueber sie reden. Vor allem das nicht alle Antworten richtig sind, sondern in der Praxis falsch. Im Gegensatz zu anderen Anbietern wo reine Theoretiker sitzen, ist dies ein sehr grosser Vorteil. Die kleine Kursgroesse traegt dazu bei, dass das Lernen sehr effizient ist."
