Instructor Renewal 2019-20

  • Type contact information below (we need this done every year to assure we have the most recent information).

  • 1. The mission of Accident Scene Management (ASM) is to reduce injuries and fatalities associated with motorcycle crashes through First Response education. ASM’s goals associated with that mission are to provide quality Bystander Assistance Programs (BAP) in order to strengthen the Emergency Medical System (EMS) and its effectiveness. We also intend to strengthen the EMS in its response to motorcycle trauma.
  • 2. In order to maintain this focus it is imperative that ASM classes be taught by individuals who are qualified to teach this medically oriented material. It is also important that instructors understand anatomy as well as the EMS system and how it works. We always seek instructors who are love to teach. ASM has Two Tiers of Instructors. Lead instructors (Level One) must be EMT or higher in medical training and a motorcyclist or have been approved to advance from Level Two to Level One (see process in the Instructor Binder). Level Two instructors must be a motorcyclist but do not need a medical background. A Level Two Instructor can also be a medical professional who does not ride motorcycle. A Level One (Lead) Instructor must be present for the duration of every class and may teach a class alone. A Level Two instructor can teach any portion of the program (no restrictions but must have a Lead instructor present and cannot teach a class alone.
  • 3. Course Assistants may be used to assist with larger classes. They can assist with registration, class logistics, assist you with AV and hands on but they cannot teach! Course Assistants are not recognized by ASM as instructors. If they assist with Hands on, it becomes the responsibility of the Lead instructor to be sure they know what they are doing. If there are any issues that arise due to the use of a Course Assistant, the Lead instructor will be held responsible.
  • 4. More students trained is better! ASM recognizes that the difficulty in training more people is mainly logistics including hands on (lecture may be done to large groups) In order to provide a quality experience for your students an additional instructor or an course assistant should be used for groups larger than 20.
  • 5. Funds may be raised for your program and its development. If you are planning a fundraiser or approaching a group about having a fundraiser and are using the ASM name to raise those funds, ASM must be consulted and notified. If a group makes a donation by writing a check to ASM, that check must be sent to ASM. You may request to use those funds (less 10% minimum donation back to ASM) to further training in your area but all funds donated must be accounted for. Tax-deductible receipts may not be issued if ASM does not know about the donation. All items donated to ASM are the property of ASM. If you discontinue teaching, all items must be returned to ASM to be redistributed to other instructors so they can use those items to further ASM’s cause.
  • 6. ASM maintains its own curriculum and standards based upon the US DOT Emergency Medical Responder Curriculum, American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeon’s helmet removal technique and American Heart Association Jaw Thrust Technique for spinal preservation. Instructors must follow ASM’s curriculum and must not add other techniques or topics. This includes not adding videos or pictures to the ASM PowerPoint Program without permission. Instructors must not alter or mix programs. In other words, if you are teaching “A Crash Course for the Motorcyclist” you should not add slides from “Anatomy of a Motorcycle Crash” or visa versa. Instructors who do not follow these guidelines will face discipline or possible revocation of their license to teach ASM programs.
  • 7. ASM classes are recognizable for their standard content. In order for a class to be recognized as an ASM class, ASM materials (student packets and Power Point) must be used. The class that is taught in Florida should be the same class that is taught in Alaska. While we encourage instructors to use stories and to have fun with their students, content must not change. A full student packet must be issued to each student that includes their certificate of completion and their patch. Students will only get credit (certificate and patch) for completing the entire 100 or 300 series class. Patches may not be purchased unless the class has been completed.
  • 8. Students frequently contact the ASM office asking about classes. They also look for instructors who are actively teaching. ASM must be notified of all classes that are being taught using the ASM name as soon as you have enough information (Date, time, student charge, basic location) to be able to register the class. Classes will be posted within three days of receipt.
  • 9. One of the things that cause the ASM organization to be special is that we track students. We can tell those who inquire; who is teaching our program, how many classes have been taught, how many students have been taught and how our programs have been evaluated by students. Instructors are required to provide the following in a timely manner. ASM also issues continuing education credits and is mandated by the credentialing organization to keep records of students to include Name, address & phone and/or email. ASM prefers e-mail (phone is for you to call the student if there is a last minute change of plans for the class or question).
  • 10. An instructor gets better at teaching as they teach classes. It is important to teach at least two times a year in order to have a degree of comfort with the material. Of course more is always better! Active instructors are those who teach two or more a year. If an instructor is “inactive” for two years in a row they may be contacted to determine what their desire is re: continuing to teach and affiliate with ASM
  • 11. Instructors may have strong opinions about matters that are not ASM First Response Curriculum related. As an educational non-profit organization, ASM instructors must refrain from speaking to press or students about matters not ASM related during classes or while representing the ASM program. This includes but is not limited to politics & religion. Regarding laws ASM recommends students obey current laws and beyond that has NO COMMENT.
  • 12. Organizational affiliations can be a good or a bad thing. All official affiliations must go through ASM’s BOD. Please contact ASM if you receive a request such as this.
  • 13. Anyone contacting you wishing to speak to your group of students will require a call to the ASM office before proceeding. Your respect and assistance in maintaining these contractual agreements are imperative as they make it possible to provide you with active web services, curriculum and a staff to serve you.
  • 14. ASM makes a commitment to its instructors. ASM agrees to make a continuous effort to be available for guidance and to keep instructor materials & website updated as needed. In order to accomplish this, a yearly fee is assessed to maintain and update records as well as website information. This service is included in your initial instructor packet and then becomes due March 31st each year. The 2015-16 fee is $35.00 and includes Road Guardians Membership. Instructors can determine that they would like to donate additional tax-deductible amounts to the ASM organization or work with ASM to host a fundraiser that benefits your local program as well as the home office but we recognize that your donation is often that of the front line worker.
  • 15. Potential class hosts and students often visit the website and look for instructors, contacting them via their online information. It is important to check your email regularly and answer any inquiries in a timely manner (within 72 hours/3 days).
