Collision investigation fundamentals

collission avoidance

The laws of physics dictate a vehicles safe operating envelope within various environments and human beings have very definite limitations. CTEC helps drivers understand what the vehicle and human limitations are, and how to stay within those limits, by teaching the specific mechanics of the driving task. All of CTEC’s programs are based on scientific principles.




No matter what type of incident you may be investigating, nothing can be done without proper DAD (Data Acquisition and Documentation). After covering all of the topics in the General Incident Investigation course, we will:

- Discuss the specific series of events that occur in a motor vehicle incident

- Discuss the various types of evidence that can be located at a collision scene and what that evidence can tell you - Enhance your understanding of vehicle dynamics

- Talk about conducting a post-collision vehicle examination including specifically looking for evidence of use/non-use of lights and seatbelts

- Describe the "black-box" technology in vehicles, what information is available and how to get that data

- Work on calculations you can do to determine various time & distance relationship, including how fast a vehicle was travelling, the distance and time required to reach a certain speed, change speeds or slow or stop

It is a very full week but students never fail to say "I wish I had known this before."

With this 5 day course, you will transform your reports from fiction to fact.

Collision Investigation Fundamentals Sept 25-29, 2017


Driving is the most dangerous activity a human can do. There is simply nothing else that we do that results in the volume of death, injury and property damage as does driving. Today’s driving environment is very complicated and traditional driver training often fails to provide the skills needed to safely operate in that environment. Being human our skills erode over time and we often allow bad habits to form. Driving is something we all do. Driving is dangerous. We should have the skills to do it well.
