Brian Adamson, Ambulance Technician and First Aid Trainer
My 12 year relationship with Nuco Training began on my way to the first week of University, where I made a detour en-route, missing the beginning of fresher’s week, to attend one of Nuco Training’s First Aid Instructor Courses. The course simplified and honed in on what we are looking for from all first aid skills. I appreciated the hands on practical approach to teaching and learning and the quality of resources and support material. This qualification has enabled me to continually gain clients that renew their training with me throughout University and until present day.
Nuco supported me through my first courses as an instructor and gave me the exposure to deliver training to multinational organisations; they boosted my confidence in the classroom by sharing new teaching ideas. They ensure I always know the latest industry news, with an experienced instructor training team on hand to guide and support me.
Since moving to the South West I have gained considerable experience in varied pre-hospital settings. I am into my 9th year as a lifeboat crewman. I have also been fortunate enough to be invited to many national events providing water safety or medical support to participants.
I have spent five full summer seasons on the north coast of Cornwall’s beaches Lifeguarding, seeing minor and major first aid incidents on a daily basis, I took the decision to further my training in Cape Town, South Africa, qualifying as an Institute of Health Care Development Ambulance Technician.
