Tom Macdonald. - Microsoft MTA Security, Windows Server Administration & Networking (6 days) (5/11/2018 to 10/11/2018)

"The instructor was very good to learn with. Went through at a quick enough pace not to be boring. Very interactive and easy to ask questions and get responses. Was better than just going through and learning what the book says to pass the exam, as you wouldn't learn anything other than passing. This course will be beneficial to me in the future as I now know more about the area of the course. "
Bradley Tweddle, Citrix R & D. - Microsoft MTA Security, Windows Server Administration & Networking (6 days) (5/11/2018 to 10/11/2018)

Simon Gilson, Prodrive IT. - Microsoft MTA Security, Windows Server Administration & Networking (6 days) (5/11/2018 to 10/11/2018)

"The training through firebrand was all in all a good experience. The instructor was a brilliant tutor who made sure we were all engaged. I feel as though the course needed an extra day in each subject for the information to sink in properly, and the one main issue I had was that the course resources were outdated for the exams we were sitting which made it harder to revise, but the trainer did recognise this and put some material into his lessons to try and overcome this. "
M.G., utilita. - Microsoft MTA Security, Windows Server Administration & Networking (6 days) (5/11/2018 to 10/11/2018)

"The week spent at Firebrand has been very helpful and although there is a only a short amount of time to learn a lot of content, we were given plenty of opportunity to ask questions and even go into more depth, the course has been very helpful and I feel that I learnt a great deal in a short amount of time."

Alejandro Brea Capeans. - Microsoft MTA Security, Windows Server Administration & Networking (6 days) (5/11/2018 to 10/11/2018)
