First Aid for Motorcyclists

"First Aid for Motorcyclists" (run by Tracy Hughes and Roger Fance) have released dates for their courses in 2016.

First Aid for Motorcyclists is a half day training session that's been developed specifically for riders.

The fee is $78 per person and the half day course covers

  • Roadside accident scene management
  • Emergency helmet removal
  • Moving a casualty in danger
  • First aid traumatic injury treatment skills
  • Accident prevention stategies

This is NOT a Regular First Aid Course.   Training is delivered by highly qualified experienced first aid instructors who ride

 For dates and bookings check their website: http://www.firstaidformotorcyclists.com.au

The course is endorsed by the Ulysses Club and Victorian Motor Cycle Council amongst others.  

The course does qualify for the Ulysses Club training rebate.  

As our rides often take us to places where it may take a long wait for emergency services to arrive, training of this nature never goes astray.  

First Aid Training Options

Our National Vice President has done the above course and I will quote her;

"I have done Tracey’s course and thought it very good – in Canberra we don’t get many opportunities for this kind of course so was pleased to be able to do it."

Another member (Gavin) has done the ASMA course, which is substantially funded by the TAC (see forum post) and was quite impressed with it   The ASMA course also results in a recognised first aid certificate.  Both courses appear to be done under the auspices of Allens Training.  

Check them both outenlightened - Training of this nature is never wasted and we can always learn something.smiley
