First Aid for Cyclists

Course overview

The owner of Green Box, Paul, is an avid cyclist and has ridden across the UK and Europe. During that time he has had to deal with injuries of fellow cyclists so put together this cycling specific course. Cyclists are at an increased risk of accidents and are more likely to stop at another accident. When dealing with a cycling accident, there is also the risk of being hit by another vehicle. This course is aimed at all cyclists, whether you race or use your cycle in town. This course covers basic life support skills and the specific problems that are faced by cyclists. The course can be taught locally or at your local cycle club.

 

The course covers the issues that are likely to be found by cyclists at all levels.

As with all of Green Box's First Aid Courses, the First Aid for Cyclists Course complies with the latest ERC and UK Resuscitation Council Guidelines and can be done as a blended or classroom based course. With Green Box we offer a completely flexible learning structure to enable you to learn at a time that suites you.

All of Green Box's first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2015.

The content of this and all Green Box First Aid courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a ProTrainings Certificate and for online courses an Evidence Based Learning statement.

Who is this course for?

Outdoor enthusiasts who want to be able to take responsibility for themselves in the outdoor environment where you may be further away from the Emergency Medical Services than normal.
