Who succeeded in claiming the ultimate prize of unlimited free training – who has become the ultimate cert-collector?

The newly crowned winner, Mario, is an IT administrator based in Frankfurt at ponturo consulting AG. This is how he felt when he first heard of his win:

“This is incredible, I can’t believe I won Free Training for Life! I am still processing the opportunities this prize can create for me in my future career. I’ve already decided to take the Certified Ethical Hacking course first. Working as an IT administrator responsible for systems security, the knowledge I will gain from this certification will be invaluable in protecting my companies assets. I cannot wait to get started.”

Unlimited training you say?

Starting today, Mario Henkel will receive access to a lifetime’s worth of free training courses and exams from Firebrand. He’ll be able to choose from 200+ IT, security and project management courses.

Mario has already decided to take EC-Councils Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) course as his first choice of certification. He’ll learn to think like a hacker and apply this to fend off attacks on his organisations network and systems.

Plus, Mario’s prize means he won’t have to pay for any training fees, exam fees, course books, food and accommodation. Not to mention, Mario can also undertake his training in any of Firebrand’s training centres across Europe.

Mario now joins previous winner, Joseph Guthrie, as the two winners of Firebrand’s life-changing and career augmenting competition. Truly, this is one exclusive club. To hear Mario talking about his prize you can head to the FTFL page and watch his winners video.

We’d like to thank all of the 15,000 entrants to our second Free Training For Life competition.
