I think what l'ildring was referring to was MC specific first-aid training. The context here is that at an MC show last year there was a booth representing an organization offering rider-specific first-aid training.
While we expressed interest (and even won a Go-Pro camera by way of their ballot box) we were not very successful with arranging a course with them. After so long, given that while the organization seemed promising, it did not appear to be very organized, so one just moves on...
That said, over the last couple of weeks we have completed basic first aid/CPR through St. John, as well as several days of wilderness first-aid training also through St. John.
I think the courses were valuable. In terms of the wilderness first aid course, especially from the perspective of the most common injuries one might run into travelling in remote areas, improvisation, etc.
Given that we were the only MC riders in the group, we ended up spending a reasonable amount of time on helmet removal -- more than I expected, actually.
When NOT to do it (most of the time), when to do it (when the risk of casualty survival outweighs the risk of spinal injury), and technique including practising with our own helmets. Its NOT easy to do well.
I believe that they cover helmets as regular course material, as while motorcycles are little more niche, quads and snowmobiles are very much common place in what we know as "wilderness" in our area (Ontario, Canada). Even though participants may be taking this course for from the context of wilderness pursuits such as hiking or canoeing, there is always a chance they could run into an MC/quad/snowmobile rider in trouble.
I think I expected more in terms of venomous bites, stings, travel related illness, etc. and things that might be considered "more obscure". I guess I will fill the gap with a little book learning
