The Randall’s Adventure & Training Hands-On Approach
The folks at Randall’s Adventure & Training / ESEE Knives know about challenges. Having spent the last 20 years training between the jungles of South America and remote environments stateside, they’ve built a whole gear and training business based on challenges.
Whether it’s surviving in a wilderness environment, rescuing a patient off of a cliff face, teaching advanced land navigation techniques, training search and rescue personnel in lightweight, remote concepts, or introducing a newcomer to the outdoors, Randall’s Adventure & Training (RAT) has built their training business by boots-on-the-ground experience.
The company’s Vice-President, Mike Perrin, describes the growth and changes that have occurred since the company's inception. "Our training is more diverse and targeted now, and the knife and gear offerings have greatly expanded since our beginnings in 1997. But even though we have evolved and grown, our company has remained true to its original mission: provide students a one-stop-shop for skills and tools needed to save lives, keep the price reasonable, and back everything with the best warranty and customer service in the industry.”
Randall’s Adventure Training was in the survival training business long before the 'survival' craze hit the market. As Jeff explains, “Real survival can be extremely hard work, both mentally and physically, and rarely resembles the entertainment value shown on ‘survival’ TV. We distill our training and tools down to the ground truth of what works based on years of experience. When a survivor has a better understanding of the environment they’re thrust into, and what to do should things go sideways, then it greatly increases their odds of making it home to their family."
