"The training environment is very good. Good classroom and hotel accommodation, which is less than a minute walk from the classroom. Food excellent too. Training is very intense but if you put in the effort and get a couple of exam passes it is worth the effort. I passed 2 out of the 3 CCNP exams, not perfect, but it would have taken me far longer to get these if I had self-studied and trained elsewhere. Overall I'm very happy with the Firebrand experience and would recommend it to those willing to put in the effort and dedicate themselves to study during their stay."
Anthony Glayzer, Steria. - Cisco CCNP (Routing & Switching) (8 days) (4/8/2013 to 11/8/2013)

Thanks for the excellent course and instruction."
Andrew Winters, NATO Afghanistan. - Cisco CCNP (Routing & Switching) (8 days) (4/8/2013 to 11/8/2013)

Andre Mellet, 5G. - Cisco CCNP (Routing & Switching) (8 days) (4/8/2013 to 11/8/2013)

"Im a serving member of HM Forces going through resettlement. I chose Firebrand because it is an ELCAS authorised learning provider, and as such I was able to subsidise the cost of the course with my Enhanced Learning Credits. Coupled with the savings made because the food and accommodation charges were paid for by the MOD I end up receiving a HUGE discount on the personal cost. For those going through resettlement I would thoroughly recommend Firebrand, not only are the facilities at a high standard, the instruction and course material surpassed my expectations. And to top it off, if you dont quite make the grade, youll be able to return for free, because the food and accommodation charges will be covered through resettlement. All you need to pay for is your re-sit. You cant argue with that."
P.M, HM Forces. - Cisco CCNP (Routing & Switching) (8 days) (2/6/2013 to 9/6/2013)

"Forget about work for a few days, get your head into the material, work hard, and the rewards will come! 4th course with Firebrand, and, as usual, overjoyed with the results."
Mark Elen, Independent Communication Solutions Ltd. - Cisco CCNP (Routing & Switching) (8 days) (2/6/2013 to 9/6/2013)

"If you don't mind a little work hard, you will get the results we are all looking for. Best training center our company has used for our training needs. I wouldn't personally choose any other training provider in the UK. Thanks again ! "
Andre Mellet, 5G. - Cisco CCNP (Routing & Switching) (8 days) (2/6/2013 to 9/6/2013)

"Firebrands Wyboston Lakes location is totally geared up for intensive "boot camp" style training. Our instructor, Dave, was excellent - adding a wealth of personal experience and custom examples which often made understanding the official course documentation easier. His personable nature and knack for keeping everyone interested and engaged made an otherwise daunting 8-day schedule both rewarding and enjoyable."
M.C. - Cisco CCNP (Routing & Switching) (8 days) (2/6/2013 to 9/6/2013)

"The course covered the topics very well and the instructor explained the topics in such a way as to make it easy to learn."

The CCNA, CCNP, and CCIE Routing and Switching certifications have received Gold certification from the IPv6 Forum's Education Certification Program - a worldwide organisation of leading Internet vendors, industry experts and research & education networks, promoting IPv6 technology.

Getting CCNP certified means you can display the IPv6 logo, proving that you have attained IPv6 knowledge and skills. This increases your professional credibility and skills to tackle the newest, cutting-edge technologies.

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a Certification Guarantee.
