Meet our Instagram winner – Matt Owen

22nd November 2019

We are very excited to unveil the winner of our very first Instagram competition.

To win, entrants had to visit the SIMIAN Instagram page, follow us and tag two friends in our competition post, before sharing it with their own followers. Chosen courses could be taken at any of our training locations, so any and every scaffolding professional throughout the UK were eligible to enter.

The competition ran until 19th November when the winner was chosen at random from the many entrants. Our lucky winner this time around is Matt Owen, from Chester, who wins the CISRS course of his choice.

A Scaffolder for RS Scaffolding, who are based in North Wales, Matt has selected a CISRS Advanced Scaffolder course at our Warrington Centre. The Advanced course takes attendees through the theoretical and practical knowledge that will enable them to erect and dismantle complex scaffolds and is the highest grade of qualification in the UK scaffolding industry

When asked about what winning this free training course meant to him, Matt said:

“First and foremost, it will mean that I will receive a pay rise in my role. The course is something that I have been wanting to do for a while, but didn’t have the money to book on, so this win has come at the perfect time.

This isn’t the first time I have attended training provided by SIMIAN, having already completed my Part One and Two scaffolding training with them. Both of these courses were brilliant, so I am really looking forward to once again working with them to advance my scaffolding knowledge.”

On behalf of the entire SIMIAN team we would like to say a huge congratulations to Matt! We look forward to welcoming you onto our Advanced Scaffolder course.
