Red Cross Babysitting Courses

Can anyone advise if there are any Red Cross babysitting courses in Lausanne? My daughter will turn 14 in December and is keen to get a qualification to start babysitting.

Google helps-
Croix-Rouge genevoise
Route des Acacias 9
Case postale 288
1211 Genève 4
T: 022 304 04 04
F: 022 300 31 83

If I had half a brain (on a good day) I would just send a mail to these folk with a loose Google translation - if you cannot speak French. If they cannot help, then I think you have no chance - I am sure that they know which courses they offer. Croix Rouge is red cross if you are hanging out in Geneva way. I presume "ge" in the address means Geneva. (or Genf). Good luck with the course - never sat on a baby myself.
