First aid course returns to Queensland

The First Aid for Motorcyclists course founders are heading north to Queensland again to run their important courses in several centres from March.

Motorbike Writer is a proud sponsor of the course which has toured the country and set up trainers in several centres.

The course was put together by Tracy Hughes and partner Roger Fance who are highly qualified and experienced first aiders and dedicated Ducatisti!

They are based in NSW, but still tour the country to provide the course for riders around the nation.

The course is specific to motorcycle crashes and varies from other first-aid courses. Even trained medical staff have found the course useful for the specifics of a motorcycle crash.

Costs are $85 per person and Ulysses members get a 50% rebate.

First Aid for Motorcyclists course

The course is also sponsored by Maurice Blackburn Lawyers and well supported by Motorcycle Councils in each state, rider training providers Stay Upright and HART, Motorcycle Riders Associations in Queensland and ACT, plus Harley-Davidson Australia HOG Chapters.

Their half-day course is not designed to turn participants into medical practitioners. It’s designed to help riders manage a motorcycle accident scene and manage the casualties, rather than treat them.

“The main aim is to preserve life and hold the fort until the cavalry arrives,” says Roger.

Topics include such things as emergency helmet removal, moving a casualty away from danger, picking up a motorbike, emergency communications in remote areas, legal aspects of providing first aid, accident prevention and techniques such as fatigue management and group riding guidelines.

Motorbike Writer strongly urges every rider to do their First Aid for Motorcyclist course.

You can contact Roger for bookings and more information on 0427 464 266.
