Simian and Layher Announce Training Partnership

April 11th, 2018

We’re delighted to announce a formal training partnership arrangement with Layher UK  – the world’s largest manufacturers of system scaffolding.

Simian has, for the past ten years or so, been Layher’s preferred provider of training for their systems, but this arrangement has now been formalised, by the signing of a service level agreement, which will see scheduled courses available at Simian’s HQ in Warrington and Layher’s Hertfordshire base.


The partnership extends to the provision of the following courses:


  • CISRS Part One, Part Two and Advanced at Warrington; and,
  • CISRS Layher BASE, Layher SSPTS, and Layher product training in both Warrington and Hertfordshire.


In addition to the scheduling of courses, the agreement will also see the introduction of dedicated training contact details for existing Layher customers.


Speaking of the agreement, Simon Hughes, Simian’s Managing Director, said, “We’re delighted to formalise our long-standing arrangement with Layher. Their product is instantly recognisable as one of the world’s best and we’re proud to be Layher’s preferred training partner. The agreement allows Simian to deliver Layher courses over an increased geographical area and we’re sure that this will be hugely beneficial to customers of both Layher and Simian.”

We are also pleased to be able to announce a dedicated training email address and phone number for our customers. We are certain that all of this will provide an easier and more streamlined course booking experience.”
