Here's the Firebrand Training review section. Since 2001 we've trained exactly 64,486 students and asked them all to review our Accelerated Learning. Currently, 96.53% have said Firebrand exceeded their expectations:



"This is my third course with Firebrand and each time, its been an enriching experience. Though I found that I was out of my depth in the OCA/OCPJP course, the instructor was extremely patient, provided excellent tutelage, and encouraged me to continue pursing the qualifications. He helped me plan a good course of attack in terms of what other courses I can take to prepare for my eventual retake of OCA/OCPJP and also what things I can do in my spare time to really come to grips with Java as a programming language. That is the beauty of these courses. Extreme in their preparation but even if you don't get the qualification first time, you never walk away empty handed. I feel even more confident that when I return in a few months time, I will pass the OCA and possibly the OCPJP and I have absolutely brilliant instructors - to thank for that, in due course."
