How the awards were won


Chosen from over 700 training centres, 107 countries and a wide range of EC-Council certified instructors, Firebrand proved its distinction in picking up the Accredited Training Centre of the Year award (Europe) and Instructor Circle of Excellence (Europe) award. Firebrand and Richard Millet met the extensive and rigorous criterion EC-Council have in place to be awarded as the best in Europe in both of these categories.

The Accredited Training Centre of the Year award seeks to acknowledge training centres that provide the greatest level of information security training. Some of these courses include EC-Council’s flagship Certified Ethical Hacker, the Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator, the Network Security Administrator and the ECSA.

The Instructor Circle of Excellence (Europe) award acknowledge instructors that epitomise the industry's best practices, while raising standards and contributing to a growing body of knowledge surrounding information security.
