At-Scene Traffic Crash Investigation Training (Part 1 in a 3-Part Series) @ Rio Rancho

Students will gain the necessary skills to conduct a thorough traffic crash investigation and properly document findings for courtroom presentations. Students will learn the proper procedures for measuring, scale diagramming, and photographing in order to record physical evidence and essential facts available only at the crash scene. Training topics include fundamentals of mathematics, physics, and engineering as they pertain to crash investigations, and the proper mathematical equations to apply for the type of crash being investigated. Additionally, students will learn to analyze the information to determine what happened before, during, and after the collision.

PREREQUISITE: Students must be experienced field officers with a strong understanding of mathematical concepts.

Traffic Crash Reconstruction Training (Part 3 of a 3-Part Series) @ Rio Rancho

You must register for all three courses in the series to receive credit. 

The training will assist the students with further understanding of vehicle dynamics in a crash. Students will take part in more intense study of time/distance calculations, angular momentum, and impact speed calculations using momentum equations. Students will gain hands-on experience in crash reconstruction through extensive project work and controlled vehicle experiments. Each student will be required to diagram and analyze different crash scenarios, as well as complete vector sum analyses of each.

PREREQUISITE: Students must have completed the Advanced Traffic Crash Investigation Training.
