BASIC CRASH INVESTIGATION (2 WEEKS)
The N.J. Division of Highway Traffic Safety is pleased to present our crash investigation course schedules for fiscal year 2016. Our highly qualified instructors will be teaching the New Jersey based Kean University courses Basic Crash Investigation and Advanced Crash Investigation. The Vehicle Dynamics curriculum, offered as a stand alone course in the past, is now part of the Advanced Crash Investigation course.
Taught by members of the Institute of Police Technology and Management, Collision Reconstruction along with an array of other Specialty Courses will be offered this year as well. The coordinators for the Crash Investigation Training Program are SGT Jay Wolf (NJSP) 609-633-9198, and SGT Joan Bloom (NJSP) 609-633-9306.
As in the past all courses are funded through a grant maintained by the Division of Highway Traffic Safety and there is no charge or fees to students. It should again be noted that there is a significant amount of algebra in all courses. It is suggested that those with weak algebra skills consider refreshing their math abilities prior to enrollment. A scientific calculator is needed for all classes.
Please note that the Division of Highway Traffic Safety does not enroll students. You must call the numbers listed for each class or enroll online at the respective academy website.
For the Advanced Crash Investigation course, students must bring the materials that they were issued during Basic Crash Investigation.
This course is the basic or at-scene training that will teach officers the proper techniques for recognizing and properly recording damage that occurs when motor vehicles collide. It also covers gathering critical evidence that may be used to reconstruct a crash at a later date. Related topics include information from people, roads and vehicles. This course is designed for new officers or officers assigned to a traffic bureau. There are some basic math formulas taught and officers enrolled should have basic algebra skills and will need a scientific calculator. Class size is limited to 30 students.
