Six lucky AIS Survivex delegates won back the cost of their training totalling almost £8,000 in 2022 thanks to an innovative competition – the only one of its kind in the industry.
The popular competition, which launched last summer, attracts dozens of entries every month and provides a unique chance to get high-quality industry training free-of-charge.
Anyone who shares an on-course photo tagging @AIS Survivex on Facebook or LinkedIn is automatically entered into a monthly prize draw to win back the full cost of their training.
Last year’s competition was a huge boost to the wallets of our winners: Craig Black, Aled Evans, Bartosz Zieba, Richard Hilde, Lloyds Mullings and Tom Suddaby. As well as helping these delegates financially, AIS Survivex’s training provided life-changing career opportunities for some of them.
33-year-old Richard Hilde made his first leap into the offshore sector with his free Offshore Banksman Slinger New-Starter Package with AIS Survivex. This unique package of courses gives you all the skills you need to start an offshore career as a banksman / slinger.
Through sheer determination Richard secured his first Roustabout role with Atlas Professionals just two days after completing his training.
“I didn’t expect to win, I couldn’t believe it. It’s a nice payback. I did all the research and my friends recommended AIS Survivex to me, as they offered all the training that I needed to do to be able to further my career. Everyone’s very professional and knowledgeable, and the facilities are great.”
34-year-old Lloyd Mullings from Washington won back £3,000 pounds AND secured his first job in the wind industry.
The dad-of-two opted for the GWO Blade Repair Package at AIS Survivex after setting his sights on the renewables industry back in 2017 and saving up for the training for the next five years.
And it wasn’t long before Lloyd got his first taste of the wind industry, signing a contract with Muehlhan Wind just days after finishing his training.
“I still can’t believe that I won. As soon as I found out in the classroom I was jumping around!
“Before I invested in anything, I looked at the reviews and online feedback and it was all glowing about AIS Survivex. I’d heard you get a lot for your money, and that’s another reason why I came here over competitors. The packages have everything you need, and the price was reasonable. There weren’t really any doubts; I wanted to go through AIS Survivex.”
