The Advanced Technical Collision Investigation course is the second level of instruction for police officers, investigators and engineers who will be investigating automobile collisions. The course will cover 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, and an 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. Attendees will need to bring a scientific calculator to class as well as a laptop computer which as the ability to view ".pdf" files. Course materials will be provided electronically. 

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.

Early registration fee of $850 per person if registered and paid prior to December 1, 2019. Registrations December 1, 2019 or later will be $950 per person.

The Bosch CDR Technician course is a 2-day course providing training on the use of the Bosch Crash Data Retrieval system to collect electronic data from event data recorders installed in vehicles. Attendees will be instructed on the hardware of the system to include the CDR interface module, CDR 900, CDR 500, adapters and cables. Attendees will be instructed in the most current version of the Bosch CDR software. All attendees will complete images of data from vehicles through the diagnostic link connector and directly to the module. All attendees will need to bring a laptop computer with an available USB port.  Course materials will be distributed electronically via a thumb drive. Attendees are not required to provide a Bosch CDR System for the course.

The Collision Safety Institute offers the longest standing continuously offered CDR Data Analyst course available and the content and materials for that course have been recently updates in 2019 to cover 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.


Manufacturer specific information always including the latest coverage for the various manufacturers as supported by the latest version of the CDR Tool software.

There are now several practical and relevant hands on exercises including integral calculus applications for recorded crash pulse data (attendees must bring a laptop!), the effect of tire size change, closing velocity calculations, PDOF from crash data, techniques for connecting data to a given investigation and more.

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.

Lead Instructor: W. R. “Rusty” Haight – has taught CDR courses since the earliest Vetronix training seminar in 2000 and conducted CDR specific research used as part of the material in this course
