About Leanne Henley
Leanne is the owner and instructor at Life Skills First Aid. She is a training partner with the Red Cross and has taught courses in British Columbia and Alberta for over 20 years. Recently, she spent five years in remote communities in Northern BC, where she trained people who otherwise would have had to travel long distances to become certified in first aid. She quickly realized the need for first aid training, not only in the workplace, but in everyday life. Leanne grew up in Shawnigan Lake and has now moved back to Duncan.
She is also excited to be able to offer Red Cross First Aid and CPR courses to the area that means so much to her. She believes in having fun and learning in a safe, professional and welcoming environment. She wants to prepare participants to react confidently in any first aid situation. She uses quality equipment, real life scenarios and a variety of teaching techniques to keep the class engaging and relevant.
Her background as a Red Cross Instructor, Lifeguard and mother to two energetic kids (and 1 fur baby) has really propelled her passion for educating people on the importance of first aid and CPR…it is not just training, it is a LIFE SKILL.
