SHTFSchool is coming to SWEDEN!


SHTFSchool is coming to SWEDEN!

Welcome to our ‘Urban Bug Out Course’, our latest course will help you understand the realities (and difficulties) of ‘Bugging Out’ in an Urban Survival scenario.

This course provides a unique opportunity to learn and apply a comprehensive set of skills in a condensed but appropriate ‘entry level’ environment.

Selco and Toby approach all aspects of this process from their relevant experiences and viewpoints giving a powerful amount of understanding and insight to all students attending.

Course Outline:

We begin the course with practical ‘walk through, talk through’ instructional periods and then immerse ourselves in a course scenario and explore many ‘decision making points’ and influences that make ‘Bugging Out’ such a challenging topic…

The main purpose of the course is to study and learn more about Bugging Out principles, methods, techniques and considerations. We will also explore how these skills fit into the ‘bigger picture’ of Urban Preparedness.

The course will contain some theory but largely practical sessions and will run in field based conditions…

This course not only offers an exceptional learning opportunity, but allows you to thoroughly test your equipment (BOB’s etc) in a live and challenging environment.

The course offers outstanding value, costing only 210euros for 4 full days of training!

Places are strictly limited, so reserve your spot early to avoid disappointment!

PLEASE NOTE: This course is field based and constantly moving, so expect long days and a degree of physicality during the course…

Course Venue:

Robertsfors, as a small town in the North of Sweden, was specifically selected for this course, as it allows all the benefits of ‘live environment’ training that are essential to educational experiences on a course such as this, but on a small enough scale and with manageable enough distances between key features and infrastructure that mean we can keep continuous focus on learning and practicing skills, rather than the logistics of getting from relevant place to relevant place.

Despite it’s location on the far north of Sweden it is still easy to access with regular buses, trains and flights arriving at the nearby city of Umeå and easy ongoing travel from Umeå to Roberstfors by means of public services or private vehicle.

Robertsfors also has a fantastic balance between both urban and wilderness setting, enabling us to explore and experiment with a HUGE variety of skills in both environments that are all of use in a ‘Bug Out’ scenario…


Selco has written all articles here on SHTF School and shares his experiences from surviving in a city surrounded by the enemy army and cut off from power, food, water and other supplies for a year during the Balkan war. Unlike many other so called survival experts he has experienced the end of the world as we know it.

Toby is a survival instructor who runs Survival, Outdoor and Personal Safety courses worldwide. Originally from the UK, now based in Scandinavia, Toby draws on his 25 years of training and experience in survival and outdoor skills, risk management, self defence and military training to provide the best organization and structure to the training planned.

Just like Selco, Toby is committed to cutting through the myths, misunderstandings and unfortunately, outright fantasies, so prevalent in today’s survival scene by delivering applied skills that have been thoroughly ‘pressure tested’.

We are confident you understand that a large part of this type of training is in ‘dealing with the unexpected’. In line with this we will not issue an overly detailed course itinerary.
