Biker Down Course
The training comprises of three modules:
Module 1 – Incident Scene Management: managing the scene until help arrives, risk assessment and appropriate actions.
Module 2 – Casualty Care: how to treat the typical trauma and mechanism of injury found at the scene of a motorcycle related incident, including major bleeds and basic life support, managing spinal injuries, helmet removal and CPR.
Module 3 – The Science of Being Seen (devised by Kevin Williams from Survival Skills Motorcycle Training): examining phenomena such as motion camouflage, saccadic masking and looming and highlighting that a biker’s best defence is assuming that they might not be seen and riding accordingly.
