motorbike first aid
Our Motorbike First Aid course is designed by motorcyclists, delivered by motorcyclists for motorcyclists. Content includes dealing with simulated incidents, making real first aid decisions on real people in their own motorcycle gear and covers difficult decisions that often have to be made like when and how to remove a casualty's helmet. This course is ideal for bikers, pillion passengers, event marshals, etc. Bring your own motorcycle gear as much of the practical work is centred around your own needs.

unit 2: incident management
Injuries, medical emergencies and hot and cold injury are covered in unit 2 with splinting, spinal log rolls and bandaging used to treat the casualty. These treatments are built into managing incidents, progressing to triage.
