HI all,<br><br>
I am signed up for a first aid course (Lebensrettende Sofortmaßnahmen für Führerscheinbewerber) 9a-4p this coming Monday and Tuesday. It is the last thing I need to complete before taking the written driver's license test. I am traveling to a nearby large city to take it (I am in a semi-rural area) and will be spending two nights at a nearby hotel to avoid the long, possibly unreliable commute. So this is a big deal for me.<br><br>
My main concern is that my German is really bad. This course is in German, of course, and I wasn't really worried about it (I worked in medical settings in the U.S. for years and have a reasonable amount of first aid type training and experience) until it occurred to me that I might be called on or have to take a test at the end. Can anyone give me insight into what the class is like and what I might be facing? I am taking it from Malteser.<br><br>
Thanks,<br>

It has been years since I took this course. I remember covering first aid and CPR. You could brush up on those topics and medical terms before going.<br><br><a href="http://german.about.com/library/blmedvoc.htm" target="_blank">http://german.about.com/library/blmedvoc.htm</a><br><br>

Thanks :). Yes, I am taking it in English and have been studying the practice exams.

I don't recall a written test at the end, just practical exercises with dummies. it's also been years though, I should re-take it... can you maybe contact Malteser beforehand and ask them about the test?

Update:<br><br>
I passed just fine. I accidentally took the longer, more comprehensive version though. They had the two classes mixed together at first and I missed the part about different requirements for different people. In any case, I have my certificate and that is all Frau Grimm is going to care about :). I think it helped that I have had practically the exact same class in English many times before.<br><br>
