The At-Scene Traffic Crash/Traffic Homicide Investigation course prepares participants with the necessary skills to conduct a thorough traffic crash investigation and properly document their findings for courtroom presentation.

In the 80-hour class, presenters show the proper procedures for measuring, scale diagramming, and photographing in order to record physical evidence and essential facts available only at
the crash scene. Participants will learn the 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. Finally, participants will learn to analyze the information to determine what happened before, during, and after the collision.

Topics Include

  • Physical evidence from the roadway
  • Physical evidence from the vehicle
  • The human element and occupant kinematics
