This Level 3 course is endorsed by the Auto-Cycle Union known as the ACU, the qualification is also accepted and designed to cover first aid for motor accidents.
Being a motorcyclist means you are more likely see or be in a group ride where bike accidents happen. All bikers have a sense of family and are more likely to stop and help others while out on the roads. Dealing with motorcycle accidents has more risks than dealing with standard first aid scenarios as you will be by a busy road and could be hit by another vehicle. This specialist course covers basic life support skills as well as other injuries that could affect motorcyclists as well as safety by the roadside when dealing with an accident. The course is completed fully classroom based and can be run locally to you.
This course can be delivered at your own venue for staff or we have a range of public courses avaliable, see our upcoming course calendar for more information on public courses.
