The Advanced Technical Collision Investigation course is the second level of instruction for police officers, investigators and engineers who will be investigating automobile collisions.

Topics covered:

Time and distance analysis in automobile collision investigations

Linear perimeter measurements

Crush damage analysis

Vehicle dynamics

Occupant kinematics

Advanced airborne equations

Conservation of linear momentum

Introduction to automobile vs. pedestrian collision analysis


This course is designed for the police officer, investigator, engineer, or other person who responsible for critical automobile collision investigation and the analysis of those collisions.


A mandatory prerequisite for the course is At-Scene Collision Investigation (Level I) from an accredited source (AIRS, Northwestern, IPTM, etc.)


Students should expect substantial course work and projects to reinforce course instruction. 


All attendees will need to bring a laptop computer with an available USB port.  Course materials will be distributed electronically via a thumb drive. 

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

Accident Investigation

and

Reconstruction Specialists, Inc.

The Traffic Collision Reconstruction course is another level of instruction for police officers, investigators and engineers who will be investigating automobile collisions.

Topics covered:

Energy,

Time and Distance Analysis,

Formula Derivations,

Advanced Airborne Equations

Introduction to Commercial Motor Vehicle Collisions,

Event Data Recorder applications in Traffic Collision Reconstructions.


Each attendee works on several traffic collision reconstructions. During the course, attendees will apply the information learned from the At Scene Collision Investigation (Level I) and Advanced Technical Collision Investigation (Level II) and learn to reconstruct vehicle collisions to provide answers as to what happened during a collision. This course is designed for the police officer, investigator, engineer, or other person who responsible for critical automobile collision investigation and the analysis of those collisions.


Attendees will need to bring a scientific calculator to class as well as a laptop computer which has the ability to view ".pdf" files. Course materials will be provided electronically.


A mandatory prerequisite for the course is the successful completion of At-Scene Collision Investigation (Level I) and Advanced Technical Collision Investigation from an accredited source (AIRS, Northwestern, IPTM, etc.)


Students should expect substantial course work and projects to reinforce course instruction. Cost of the course is $1080 per person. Early registration fee is $950 if registered before November 7, 2020.


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