  1. You’ll be CAST AND certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be CAST AND trained in record time
  2. Our CAST AND course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass CAST AND first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We're sure you'll pass your CAST AND course first time. But if you don’t, come back within a year, and only pay for accommodation. Everything else is free
  4. You’ll learn more CAST AND. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor

  7. You'll do more than study CAST AND courseware. We use labs, case studies and practice tests to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging
