Simon achieved his Advanced National Craft qualification with Distinction from the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Technological University Dublin. He was drawn away from continuing in the world of engineering and into a career in finance after he completed an intensive full-time 6-month QQI level 6 Business and Finance program in Dublin, for which he received special recognition from the then Minister for Education.
