Here's the Firebrand Training review section. Since 2001 we've trained exactly 63.481 students and asked them all to review our Accelerated Learning. Currently, 96.49% have said Firebrand exceeded their expectations:



"We had Phil Anderson, a very nice and intelligent man. He had to put through a lot of information. I did not take the exam at the end of the week, because I am a person who needs more time to process information. The course was structured and well done by Phil. I would recommend him as a trainer. Teacher gets a 9. The facilities of the training were good. Everything was prepared before the training, so it had an easy start. "
