First Aid Course Offered by the Health Center

Bilkent First Aid Instruction Center (Bilkent İlkyardım Eğitim Merkezi or BİYEM) at the Health Center conducted the thirty-fifth of its certified first aid courses last week. The course will continue this semester.

Founded in 2005, the center offers first aid training by five instructors specially trained in this field. A solid knowledge of first aid can be crucial even if there is no major emergency. Good first aid can prevent small accidents from becoming big events. And, you might even save a life.

BİYEM's first aid courses take place over weekends (Saturday and Sunday) and consist of a total of eighteen hours of applied instruction. Bilkent personnel and students who have attended say that the training helped develop prowess in practical application of first aid. They also admit to having had a fun weekend!
