Accident Scene Management Australia (ASMA) is running their "Crash Course for the Motorcyclist" for the first time in Queensland. Open to anyone, this one-day course will be run by 2 ASMA instructors and will train up to about 15 (max 20) participants per course. ASMA is a not-for-profit organisation. These 2 courses will be run at the Redlands Multi-Sports Club at Birkdale. Cost is $165 for the day. ASMA presented at the Ulysses Club's Road Safety Forum during their Mildura AGM in March. Attendees were shown 2 demos on helmet removal:- a one-person and a two-person methods. These were performed by Phil Lemin and narrated by Vicki Roberts-Sanfelipo. Vicki developed a course in North America that is now the benchmark of Motorcycle Trauma training in the USA. Here is the 1-person helmet removal demo, with permission to post the clip - Click on this photo to see the video clip: Note: As this was a high definition clip, you can use the YouTube option ('cog' icon in bottom right corner) to "Change Quality" to various settings. Clearly there is a lot more to this first aid course than helmet removal, with a lot of skill involved that isn't apparent in the imagery. The course is a complete first aid course, tailored to motorcyclists and has an excellent reputation from previous participants. From ASMA: Participants can claim this course against their income tax if they need a First Aid certification for their work. Of course you don't have to do the certification (involving a workbook and a test) if you simply want to attend, but it is he same cost either way. To enrol for one of these courses, go to Welcome page then go to "Course Information" on the top line of the home page; Next click on "Queensland" on the right side. The Saturday is apparently already heavily booked, Sunday half full to date. For more info, contact ASMA at firstname.lastname@example.org or ph 0428 951 535. PS: I have no connection with ASMA except that as a Motorcycle Safety rep, I have a strong interest in this stuff and really believe such courses make a real difference (unlike much of the talk-fest stuff that occurs in road safety). So I am spreading the word. My wife and I have paid to attend the Sunday course.
