First Aid tailored to ACU motorcyclists and anyone involved

Motorcyclists are at an increased risk of accidents and more likely to stop at another bike accident. Dealing with motorcycle accidents has other risks 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. This is a one day course and can be carried out locally or at your club.

The Auto-Cycle Union known as the ACU is the internationally recognised National Governing Body for motorcycle sport in the British Isles (less Northern Ireland).  The ACU has a major role in furthering the interests of motorcycle sport on a global basis. Their presence has seen the success of well-established and organised world-class events such as Moto GP, World Superbikes, the Isle of Man TT Races, the Motocross of Nations and Trials Des Nations.

 This course comes with 6.0 hours of CPD.  All our first aid courses fully meet the latest UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2015 as per the HSE requirements.
