Firebrand Announces 2017 Accelerated CloudMASTER® Dates



Firebrand, the leader in Accelerated Learning, has recently announced it's 2017 delivery schedule for their accelerated CloudMASTER® training course. Delivered in partnership with Logical Operations and the NCTA, this unique opportunity to immerse yourself in cloud computing will be offered during the following periods:
  • February 6-14, 2017 
  • March 20-28, 2017
  • May 1-9, 2017
  • June 12-20, 2017
Through this accelerated nine day CloudMASTER® course, students will learn practical skills on how to manage cloud technologies from a wide range of leading providers.  This course delivery model is 40% faster than traditional training and covers cloud technologies from Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, Drupal, VMWare, WordPress, Google Docs and Digital Ocean.

You’ll learn how the technologies work in each cloud system, from multiple perspectives. You’ll then move on to learning the specifics of how the cloud systems operate in your business. This will help you deploy complex applications across multiple cloud technologies. You’ll also learn practical cloud architecture skills, helping you plan and implement cloud architecture to complete your specific business goals.

Through Firebrand’s unique Lecture-Lab-Review technique:
  • Lecture - You will be in a learning environment where there are no time restrictions. Your instructor will not be rushing away for lunch and no one is eager to catch the first train home. Appealing to both auditory and visual learners, instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging.
  • Lab - Many benefit from this form of kinesthetic learning. In our state-of-the-art labs you will be able to practice what you learn. The labs are available 24 hours a day - this really is your chance to fully immerse yourself into the subject.
  • Review - Take this opportunity to ask any questions and seek guidance from your instructor. With most training courses you will wait months before sitting the exam. Not at Firebrand Training. We operate the largest exam centre in the country, and you sit your exams as part of the course. Instructor-led self-test systems ensure you will be fully prepared for the exam.


This course is delivered by official NCTA instructors using official NCTA course materials. Once completed, you’ll be prepared for all three CloudMASTER exams covering topics like:
  • Identifying business benefits of cloud computing
  • Implementing Azure cloud services and virtual machines
  • Implementing Rackspace cloud servers
  • Protecting business continuity
This course is best suited to System Administrators looking to improve all areas of their cloud implementation knowledge. Learning practical skills will help Administrators conduct smoother implementation of cloud technologies, throughout the entire process.
