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.

PREREQUISITES

Please fax documents to (877) 289-9715 or send an email to ilepse@teex.tamu.edu two weeks prior to class start date.

COURSE COST

$1250

SPECIAL NOTES

Student Must Provide:

  • Scientific calculator
  • Mechanical or wood pencil(s) with a lead measurement of .5mm
  • TEEX formula cards provided in prerequisite courses
  • TEEX traffic templates provided in prerequisite courses

Attendance Requirements

Class attendance is an essential part of the education process, and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. The course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirement, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.

Participants in a TCOLE credit course must complete the class in its entirety to receive TCOLE credit.
