About our Road User First Aid courses
Road users face a wide range of situations. These can be busy urban environments where help is readily accessible and scene safety and immediate lifesaving first aid is the priority. There are also many situations and scenarios where a motorist or motorcyclist could be the first person on the scene in an isolated location, faced with daunting decisions not typically covered on a work or leisure based first aid course. These first aid courses prepare the road user to make the critical decisions and judgement calls that are vital at the scene of road traffic incidents.
