The Collision Safety Institute offers the longest standing continuously offered CDR Data Analyst course available and the content and materials for that course are refreshed frequently to keep current with this ever expanding technology. For those who have completed the basic CDR Technician Course, the Analyst course further insight into the function of the automobile Event Data Recorder (EDR) function or subcomponent, its history and evolution as well as expanded interpretation skills enabling the application of a Bosch Crash Data Retrieval (CDR) Tool generated report to a situationally complete crash reconstruction.

Using traditional reconstruction techniques such as momentum applications, an understanding of delta-V and PDOF and admissibility hearing issues unique to this technology as the basis for the course objectives, the CDR Data Analyst Certification course is both a natural extension of the CDR Technician training and an expansion of a reconstructionist’s skill set. There is no hands-on “downloading” activity in this class since it is assumed that those in attendance have recently completed the Technician course and understand that process along with the underlying concepts of data storage in the EDR subcomponent, CDR software troubleshooting and related error messages and their solution(s). For that reason, there is no need to bring a complete CDR Tool to this course. Activity in this course is focused on reading, understanding and applying a CDR report to a normal, situationally complete reconstruction.

Working first with Vetronix and then with Bosch uninterrupted since 2000, CSI continues to offer unparalleled detailed training and support on the Bosch CDR Tool for reconstruction applications. Current content of the CDR Data Analyst’s Course covers the very latest in crash data from GM, Chrysler, Ford, Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Mazda, Suzuki, BMW, Volvo and Mercedes-Benz, VW, Subaru and others through the latest version of the CDR Tool software.



This course will be taught by Collision Safety Institute's W.R. "Rusty" Haight.


Required equipment: a laptop computer with at least Adobe Acrobat Reader, a spreadsheet program (i.e.: Microsoft Office Excel), and a scientific calculator or the Window’s calculator installed. Ideally, administrative rights to the computer for full access to functions. Course materials and course projects are distributed digitally during the course to be read/worked on with your laptop. The CDR Tool hardware is not required for this course but having the latest version of the CDR software installed would be beneficial.

Additional: Lodging and meals are the responsibility of each student/agency.
