    Biker down first aid?

    Does anyone know of a first aid course for bikers, coming up in the Manchester, Sheffield or Cheshire area?

    You could check these out:

    I did a course with their Irish branch about two years ago. I found it very useful. I was able to put what I learned into use earlier this year when I came on a single car collision. The first few people on the scene were standing around, unsure what to do, but because of the training, I was able to get stuck in until the emergency services arrived.

    I did the same course and can recommend it. Haven't had to use it yet.

    I've done the Biker Down course and recommend it - exactly what you need to render assistance at the scene until specialists arrive. Trouble is the demand means that there are not enough places and the people who run the courses, volunteers I think, seem somewhat overwhelmed. I've tried to contact the organisers in my area with a couple of queries but not received a reply - I guess they are snowed under. Their Facebook page currently reports that the organisers are on 'a sabbatical'. It's a shame!

    Biker Down course are free whereas the FBOS cost money
