Also, it will help them to reconstruct the accident from data collected, draw conclusions and recommendations from the results of the investigation, and to properly prepare a written report of the completed case. The course is designed for 108 hours, or 3 weeks. Major areas of instruction include lectures and practice in vehicle examination and evaluation, on-scene investigation of highway factors, tire and other pavement markings, speed estimates, brake tests, structured and semi-structured interviews, accident reconstruction, and report preparation.
