Frequently Asked Questions
Here are the answers to a more of the commonly asked questions about our course. If you can't find what you want here, please contact us.
What is the difference between the Motorcycle Accident Management (TM) course and a standard first aid course?
This is NOT a standard first aid course. It is a fast-paced half day training course developed specifically for riders.  You will learn the vital skills needed to provide effective accident scene management and immediate roadside first aid until emergency services arrive.  
Content is practical and totally modified for riders. Training is delivered by first aid qualified and experienced instructors who ride.
By the end of this practical, hands-on training session you'll have learned how to safely manage an accident scene, when and how to move a casualty in danger or perform emergency helmet removal, provide effective CPR, treat a rider with serious traumatic injuries and steps to prevent accidents occurring in the first place.
Topics covered include:
•  Emergency Action Plan
•  Accident Scene Management
•  Moving a Casualty In Danger
•  Emergency Helmet Removal
•  CPR Practice
•  Wounds, Bleeding & Bandaging
•  Fractures & Crush Injuries
•  Burns, Shock
•  Head Neck & Spinal Injuries
•  Common Accident Scenarios
•  Fatigue and Accident Prevention

Is this an accredited course?
The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) regulates the VET (Vocational Education and Training) sector and accredits courses for work-related purposes. If you need a first aid certificate for work-related compliance, then this is not the course for you as it does not provide a First Aid certificate. Our course is not work-related; it is community-based training. If you want to be better prepared as a rider then this highly targeted training will give you the skills you need to manage an accident scene confidently. Our training has been specifically written for motorcycle riders and is useful, relevant and based around the sound principles of the nationally recognized first aid course in regard to DRSABCD and traumatic injury. Our training follows the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines. First Aid for Motorcyclists Instructors are first aid qualified and highly experienced trainers.
Why do motorcyclists need Motorcycle Accident Management (TM) training?
Coming across an accident scene can be a life changing event for both you and the casualty; especially if you don’t know what to do!! Managing the accident scene effectively is vitally important to reduce the risk of further casualties.
Like any high velocity sport, riding a motorcycle has the potential to cause multiple life threatening injuries including head, neck and spinal damage, profuse blood loss, severe abrasion, internal injuries, burns, breaks, shock and unconsciousness. In a situation where a rider is seriously injured, skilled and immediate first aid is critical and will make a big the difference to the outcome.

What are some of the questions riders ask? 

Should I remove a helmet if the rider is breathing normally?
What is “normal” breathing?
How do I take it off safely if I suspect neck and spinal damage?
How and when should I move a casualty if they are in danger
… all this and more is demonstrated, discussed and practiced in the course
Can you tell me more about helmet removal?
A full-faced helmet should only be removed if the injured rider is not breathing* effectively. Remember In all other circumstances the helmet should remain in place with chin strap undone as it provides support for the head and neck.
The helmet provides excellent support for the delicate cervical vertebrae so ask the rider to leave it in place until medical aid arrives.  Monitor the casualty’s breathing closely and be ready to remove a full face helmet if breathing is compromised.
If you want training on how to remove a full face helmet from an unconscious casualty who is not breathing normally then enrol in a Motorcycle Accident Management (TM)  course today!

What is Shock and how do I treat it?
 Circulatory shock can become a life-threatening medical emergency and once it begins it tends to make itself worse, so immediate treatment is critical. Shock can result in inadequate oxygen supply to vital organs.
It is vital that you provide reassurance and remain calm yourself. Where possible lay the casualty down and keep him/her warm. Engage in a quiet conversation about something pleasant to distract from the injuries.
How do you treat burns caused by the motorbike or a hot road?
In the event of an accident, it is quite possible that a rider can be trapped underneath his/ her bike. Extreme heat from exhausts and engine parts can cause severe burns.
Remove clothing if possible from the burnt area. If it is stuck, cut around it; don’t attempt to pull it off. Remove jewellery to prevent restricting circulation due to swelling. If you do not have access to cool running water to cool the burn, you could use bottled water on a non-adherent dressing instead. 

Want to learn more?
Reading this information is not enough!!
Enrol and attend a Motorcycle Accident Management (TM) course where you’ll practice and learn these skills through a variety of real life scenarios. By the end of the half-day session you will understand what decisive steps are needed to confidently manage the rider’s injuries and the motorcycle accident scene.
