Regular readers of my blog will recall the FBOS (First Bike On Scene) first aid training for biker’s post I did a little while ago, well I have found another course run by the St John Ambulance.
The Emergency Aid For Motorcyclists course has been devised with motorcyclists in mind and trains you so that you will have the confidence to be cope if you have the misfortune to be at the scene of an accident.
The course, which lasts for about four and a half hours, includes instruction on the following
- Casualty movements.
- Communication and hygiene.
- Cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
- Crash helmet removal.
- Emergencies in public.
- Head injury.
- Primary survey.
- Rescue breaths.
- Unconscious casualty.
During the course you are continually access by your trainer and a St Johns Ambulance certificate, which is valid for 3 years is issued when you successfully complete the course.
For further details, and details on reserving a place on a course being run near you either click on the St John Ambulance logo at the head of the post or follow this link – First Aid Course for Motorcyclists
Details on the FBOS (First Bike on Scene) Course can be found here
I really think that both courses are a really good idea and I will be looking into doing them at some point in the near future. I will keep you updated and once I have attended the courses I will write a blog entry about them.
