Sam Culper - Nashville SHTF Intelligence Course

From Samuel Culper:

SHTF Intelligence Course

18-20 February 2017

Nashville, TN

Become a local Threat Intelligence Analyst through this course based on US military and civilian intelligence training.  You’ll learn:

  • how to provide intelligence support to a neighborhood watch program, preparedness group, or security team
  • the difference between gathering information and producing actionable intelligence
  • the structure of reviewing and interpreting intelligence information
  • how to use the Intelligence Cycle to gather, analyze, and produce threat intelligence
  • how to map events to identify trends and produce early warning of local threats

In this course, we cover how to gather different types of intelligence information, including:

  • Open Source Intelligence (OSINT)
  • Human Intelligence (HUMINT)
  • Imagery Intelligence (IMINT)
  • Signals Intelligence (SIGINT)
  • And we also cover a bit of MASINT and TECHINT

During this course, you will practice the basics of intelligence gathering and learn how to produce threat and area assessments.  Then you’ll put these skills to work in individual or team-based practical exercises built around current crime and gangs, cartel and drug activity, cyber attacks, natural disasters, potential martial law, civil disturbances, and even more deadly situations.

You’ll also begin preparing a local Area Assessment of your neighborhood and surrounding area, and identify very specific ways of gathering real-world intelligence on local threats during an emergency or disaster scenario.



Day One (Saturday, 18 FEB) – The Intelligence Cycle, Intelligence Gathering & Threat Analysis

Day Two (Sunday, 19 FEB) – Intelligence Preparation of the Community & Area Studies

Day Three (Monday, 20 FEB) – Human Intelligence & Open Source Intelligence

I built this course with two primary objectives in mind:

  1. To train concerned citizens how to gather and analyze threat information to keep their families safe and out of harm’s way
  2. To teach students how to use intelligence to reduce uncertainty about an uncertain future

  1. I hate to sound so negative but I think after reading all of these articles that the Titanic is going to be going down before the Feb. dates mentioned.
