Video: The best accelerated training for CEH?



By 

Firebrand Training - Accredited Training Centre of the Year award - EC-Council
Firebrand Training has once again won the EC-Council Accredited Training Centre of the Year award - for a fourth time in a row!

Jay Bavisi, President of EC-Council congratulated us personally, stating in the video that we are the largest supplier of Certified Ethical Hackers in Europe and that it gave him no doubt in knowing that “Firebrand has one of the best residential accelerated training for the Certified Ethical Hacker program in Europe”.

Jay Bavisi, President of EC-Council stated: “The annual EC-Council Awards highlight the commitment and achievements of our global partners and trainers that have contributed to the information security community I congratulate all of the winners for their achievements and dedication to the Information Security industry in their respective region”

When we went to Miami to pick up the Training Centre of the Year award from EC-Council at the Hacker Halted conference, we learned some pretty scary facts from the last year:

  • 174 million data records were stolen
  • 96% of hacks weren't even slightly difficult
  • 85% took two weeks or more to discover
  • 92% were discovered by a third party (how embarrassing is that?!)

One example of how fast we are is the 12 day Microsoft MCTS/MCITP Enterprise & Server Administrator course. Traditional training would take 51 business days overall. We’re 400% faster. Firebrand saves the customer 41 business days. One can get both the certs in just 10 business days.
