Kay is one of our highly qualified Lead Trainers operating from Worcestershire and has been with Nuco Training since 2013.
When did you first learn first aid and why?
I joined the ambulance service in 2002 and trained to become a paramedic. I have always thrived when training and really enjoyed furthering my knowledge in areas surrounding emergency care. I continuously maintained my professional development and most recently completing a university degree with the intention of a possible career digression in the future.
What made you choose to become a first aid instructor/trainer?
After being in the ambulance service for over 10 years, I began teaching part time as a visiting lecturer at the local university to paramedic students. This positive experience gave me the ambition to look into gaining a nationally recognised teaching qualification to hopefully enable me to teach as a career and further develop my teaching skills. During this time the ambulance service was undergoing many changes which further encouraged and confirmed my decision to pursue a career in teaching.
What would you say to someone considering becoming a first aid trainer?
I can’t recommend Nuco Training enough. Every interaction with them has been received with a prompt, positive and extremely helpful response. No query is too much trouble for any member of the team.
Becoming a First Aid Instructor is an exciting, challenging but overall fun career and I would suggest contacting Nuco if you are considering this as an option to discuss further. My husband, Ian is booked on a forthcoming course knowingly how much I have achieved since making the decision to become an Instructor with Nuco Training.
