Teach basic techniques to investigate collisions while keeping it easy to understand. Upon successfully completing this course, the students will have a basic knowledge of photography, marks on the roadway, information from vehicles, lamp analysis, blood draws, and scene diagramming. Review of some basic math and formulas for calculating a vehicle’s minimum speed prior to the collision. Material will be provided by CJTC which will also be used in future collision classes.
Upon successfully completing this course, the students will have a working knowledge of photography, marks on the roadway, information from vehicles, lamp analysis, blood draws, and the human factors associated with collisions. They will also review the concepts of Newtonian physics and how they apply to collision investigations. In addition to formulas learned in the Basic Collision Investigation curriculum, students will learn and apply new formulas for momentum, time-distance-speed-velocity, and airborne scenarios, along with vector diagramming. A good grasp of the associated mathematical formulas is a must for successful completion of this course.
Upon successfully completing this course, the students will have a working knowledge and expand upon the knowledge gained in both the Basic and Advanced Collision Investigation courses. Students will learn derivation of basic formulas, car vs. pedestrian collisions, delta-v, and crush. They will also review physics, airborne scenarios, time and distance, momentum, and vector diagramming. Numerous “Real-World” case studies will be presented throughout the course to insure the proper application of concepts presented.
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to: Conduct commentary drives and remedial driver training; Instruct students in the laws of physics relating to vehicle motions, which affects vehicle operation; and Identify common driving errors, improper attitudes and unsafe driving techniques. Student will use other driving equipment such “Skid Car”, “Skid Monster”, PIT and Night drives. Students will receive a certificate of completion from the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission. Any necessary lodging and meal arrangements, and the costs incurred thereby, will be the responsibility of the applicant and/or their agency.
