English first aid course around St Gallen Canton.

Hi all, I need to do a first aid course for my driver's license, but I'm having trouble in finding a school that can offer it in English. Your suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

Do it in German, even if you hardly speak a word. The driving test course is really, _really_ basic and you hardly need to understand very much language at all.

My wife (who spoke almost no German) and I did one in Basel one time (Riehen, actually, now I think of it) when we needed to renew for our skiing activities. I'd been doing first aid since I was a kid, every three years at most since 1999, and including some advanced defibrillator courses provided by my employer, so was at a much higher level than was being taught, but the instructors were happy for us to do things like CPR the 'wrong' way (they taught only mouth-to-nose) and really didn't question us very much at all.

I later found out that it wasn't really acceptable for Swiss snowsports, but the UK bodies didn't notice.
