High praise from employers for Weston Training Centre

28th November 2019

Earlier this year we opened our Construction Training Centre in partnership with Weston College.

Based in Weston-Super-Mare the purpose-built facility was an important milestone for Simian as it has enabled us to provide more scaffolding training opportunities across a larger geographical area and given us a physical training base in the South East.

The centre includes practical training areas in a vast hangar style construction which makes it ideal for scaffolding training as well as other construction and health and safety-related training courses.

The training centre has been only been open since the spring and already it has proved to be a huge success. Demand for courses from employers and individuals has exceeded expectations.  on the facilities has been extremely positive as has feedback on the range and quality of the training.

“We have been working closely with Simian Training centre in Weston Super Mare since June 2019, the centre is a fantastic addition for the South West and it makes training so much easier to arrange.

Simian’s online booking process is really easy to use, but on the occasions that I’ve needed to call, I’ve found their call centre staff to be really friendly and helpful and extremely knowledgeable about the whole CISRS Scaffolder card. scheme.

We are extremely happy with the service provided by Simian and would highly recommend them to others.” – Scaffteq West Limited

A wide range of CISRS scaffolding training courses are available at the centre. For more information on the courses available see our training page.
