Bike First Aid
1 day (6 hours)

This course uses ‘Systems First Aid’ and provides the knowledge and skills to manage incidents involving motorcycles ensuring casualty safety until emergency medical help arrives. This includes dealing with specific bike issues such as crash helmets. For this course you will need to bring your own cycling equipment.

About our Bike First Aid course
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 cyclist 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.
