4½ Hour Workshop – Fast Aid for the Motorcyclists

Designed and delivered by paramedics who are motorcycling enthusiasts includes information not found in any current First Aid course.

We are putting the knowledge gained by professionals and the military into the hands of those who can save lives in the first 3 to 5 minutes.

It will be the person closest to you that may be the only one who can “stop the bleed” fast enough.

Stop the Bleed™’ is a Rider Down initiative and is supported by the newly revised Australian Resuscitation Guidelines and licensed by the US Department of Defence, homeland security.

Our experience with the international emergency service community has empowered us to bring you the latest and most significant advanced training for trauma and most importantly, bleeding control.
