Jason is our first aid coach and bushcraft expert. He is a WEMSI Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician and teaches on our Basic, Advanced, and Trainers' courses which, over the past couple of years he has developed with Leo.

Before Getafix Jason was an Officer in the Royal Air Force: half of his 22 year career was spent as an engineer in some of the more ‘exciting’ parts of the world, the rest was on the Royal Air Force Mountain Rescue Teams. For years Jason was responsible for all 1st Aid Training of the 180 Military Mountain Rescue personnel in the UK. He was awarded the very first B-Tec HND in Immediate Care Management. Its fair to say that he knows his onions.

He’s an accomplished packrafter, when not at Getafix, you’ll find him exploring some of the remoter parts of the UK by foot and boat.
Having climbed all over the world - from Yosemite to North Africa - Jason has led expeditions to the Grand Canyon, Zion and throughout Europe.
