Develop expertise in weeks, not years

Each specially crafted programme combines up to five official and accelerated certification courses.  You will develop a level of expertise that in weeks that could take years elsewhere. One-on-one instruction from an expert instructor ensures that the training experience can be adapted to your every learning need.

You’ll have access to state of the art technology and super-fast broadband which further enhances and accelerates the process of learning. On-site testing and a personal exam invigilator mean you can sit an exam in the ideal environment, walking away certified.

Escape all distractions

Firebrand Max will cater to your every need, allowing your complete focus to be placed on learning. You’ll be flown by helicopter to the prestigious Aikwood Tower in the Scottish countryside. The location offers seclusion, allowing you to train and sit exams in perfect isolation, away from the distractions of modern day-to-day life. No noise, no distraction from a significant other or offspring.

A personal chef will craft nutritionally balanced meals to boost your energy levels and concentration throughout your stay. While a technical support team, available 24/7, ensures all systems for training remain uninterrupted.

  • Accommodation – up to 25 nights in the prestigious Aikwood Tower
  • Training – one-on-one personal instruction
  • Exams vouchers and Course Materials – including a personal exam invigilator
  • Tech support – 24hr support ensuring all systems stay online

Programmes on offer

The first Firebrand max programmes focus on cyber security. Each is aligned to senior role in the cyber security sector – Chief Information Security Officer, Security Architect and Ethical Hacker.

You’ll access official courses from the biggest names in cyber security suchs as EC-Council, ISACA and (ISC)2. Each programme has specially crafted to build the most in-demand cyber security skills. The same skills and knowledge required to defend against a terrifying rise in cyber crime target large scale mutlinational corporations.

Discussing the reasoning behind launching cyber security programmes first, UK Managing Director, Emma Seaman says;

It was an obvious decision. The frequency and sophistication of cyber-attacks is on the rise. The potential damage these attacks can inflict on the modern connected business is deeply concerning. With an ever increasing percentage of sales coming via online transactions, a FTSE 500 business being forced offline could lose upwards of £11 million a day in revenue.

The need for cyber security experts in senior positions to protect businesses from these attacks has never been higher. The Firebrand Max cyber security programmes are designed to develop these much needed experts, in an industry where we are facing a severe skills shortage.

Firebrand are also currently exploring the possibility of programmes focussing on Cloud, Networking and the Development sectors.
