World’s most expensive cyber security training programmes launched


Today, we launch a brand new product known as Firebrand Max. Imagine luxury 5-star service combined with our accelerated learning to create a unique training experience like no other.


Think one-on-one instruction, helicopter travel and castle accomodation. We’ve supercharged every aspect of the Firebrand experience:

Even faster

Each programme combines up to five official and accelerated certification courses enabling you to attain a level of expertise that would take years elsewhere. One-on-one instruction from an expert instructor allows the training experience to be tailored to your every need.

State of the art technology and super-fast broadband further accelerate the teaching experience, with on-site testing and a personal exam invigilator removing the need to travel for exams.

Free from distraction 


Your every need is catered for, allowing you to focus entirely on training. You’ll be flown by helicopter to the prestigious Aikwood Tower in the Scottish countryside. The location provides complete seclusion, allowing you to train and sit exams in perfect isolation. 



A personal chef will deliver specially crafted meals to maintain your energy levels and concentration throughout. While a technical support team, available 24/7, ensures all systems for training remain uninterrupted.

Even more included

We’ve packed even more into our all-inclusive package. One simple price covers:

  • Travel - helicopter and chauffer driven transport to and from the training location
  • Food – all meals, drinks and snacks specially prepared by your personal chef
  • 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

The first Firebrand Max programmes

The first Firebrand max programmes focus on cyber security. There are three programmes aligned to senior cyber security roles - Chief Information Security Officer, Security Architect and Ethical Hacker.

Combining official courses including EC-Council, ISACA and (ISC)2; they have been specially built to develop the senior expertise required to tackle a terrifying rise in UK targeted cyber crime.

Discussing the decision to start with cyber security programmes, 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.


Following in the footsteps of the Cyber Security pathways, Firebrand plan to launch a series of additional programmes focussing on Cloud and Development.
