"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.

"Firebrand offers a very professional course, backed up by ISC² approved teachers. Our teacher gave a very clear course, supported by his anecdotes and experience.
We were lucky to have a small group which allowed us to go deeper into things and to exchange points of view.
The hotel in Helvoirt, despite the fact that the rooms are really small, is really well located.
In the middle of the woods, it helps you concentrate on your study without having too many distractions and without the city noise.
Food is really good too! ;o)"
Eric Peeters, ING Belgium. - (ISC)2 CISSP Boot Camp (7 days) (21/5/2012 to 27/5/2012)
