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.

Crash Investigation II - 2 weeks A prerequisite for this two week course is completion of Crash Invest. one. This intense class builds on CI-1 and covers interpreting tire marks, road scars, advanced measuring methods, vehicle damage analysis and vehicle behavior during collisions. This course is also known as advanced or technical training. If applicants had a problem with the math involved in CI-1 they should hone their algebra skills prior to signing up for CI-2 since there is a noticeable emphasis on math formulas as they relate to collisions. Introduction Crash Investigation I Crash Investigation II Specialty Courses Other Offerings The Vehicle Dynamics curriculum, offered as a stand alone course in the past, is now part of the CI-2 course. Areas of study include: Newton's Laws of Motion, coefficient of friction and drag factors, basic motion equations, velocity, time, acceleration and distance, speed estimates, momentum and energy.
