Collision Reconstruction

AIR550 - 80.00 Hours

Description

Experienced collision investigators seeking to master the complexities of analyzing traffic collisions and reconstruct the events should attend this course. The course expands on the fundamentals of crash investigation with special emphasis on crash reconstruction. Critical thinking skills are sharpened to enable the trained crash investigator to analyze and understand evidence found at the crash scene. Momentum, principle direction of force, Delta-V, vector analysis, and time/distance are highlighted in this course. Case studies, many based on crash tests with known quantities as a guide, are used to illustrate major learning points.

This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements for Course #78017.

Price shown is for commissioned Texas peace officers or non-commissioned personnel employed by a Texas law enforcement agency. Additional fees will apply for out of state and others.

This course can be scheduled to meet your specific needs. For more information about this course or to schedule a class for your organization, please contact Institute for Law Enforcement and Protective Services Excellence at (800) 423-8433 or ilepse@teex.tamu.edu.
