The AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference is pleased to announce the addition of “A Crash Course for the Motorcyclist” as part of its seminar lineup for those attending the 2012 event in Carson City, Nev., July 26-29.

The course, with backing from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, will be conducted by Vicki Sanfelipo, founder of Accident Scene Management Inc. (ASMI), and Gina Woods of Open Road Radio.

Participants who complete the two-day workshop will receive certification in Motorcycle Trauma First Response and will learn what to do in the critical minutes following an accident prior to the arrival of professional help.

Vicki Sanfelipo says: “While CPR and first aid are important skills, they are not enough training when it comes to motorcycle trauma.”

Topics such as moving the injured, jaw-thrust breathing (to keep the neck still) and helmet removal will also be discussed.

The award-winning course has been taught to more than 20,000 people in the United States and will soon be taught in New Zealand, Canada and Mexico.

“A Crash Course for the Motorcyclist” is open to anyone registered for the International Women and Motorcycling Conference for the reduced rate of $37.50, and to city and state employees for $77.50. Course materials are furnished. The class will be conducted in the upstairs cafeteria of the Carson High School from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Friday, July 27, and from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 28. Attendance both days is required for certification.

For more information, contact ASMI at (262) 706-3278.
