The courses listed below are taught using Collision Safety Institute's CDR course curriculum. Collision Safety Institute (CSI) is the leading training organization for crash data retrieval. Each year CSI conducts a "train the trainer" course that certifies individuals to teach the CDR Technician Level 1 and Level courses. The individuals who have successfully passes this course have the option of being listed on this web site as a CDR Trainer/Mentor.
This CDR Technician: Train The Trainer Certification course is an opportunity for qualified and experienced CDR Data Analysts to train others to the Technician Levels 1 and 2. This course provides qualified individuals with an opportunity to teach the one day CDR Technician I or two day CDR Technician I and II Courses.
The ARC-CSI Crash Conference continues to set the standard for excellence in live, fully instrumented practical crash testing anywhere. Each year for the past 12 years, the ARC-CSI Crash Team has conducted multiple, fully instrumented crash tests that have been the basis for valuable insight into how various crash scenarios occur and have become the basis for a wealth of information on vehicle systems and operations. Nothing compares to an opportunity to see live, full scale crash tests and then, hours later, get your hands on actual data, video, photos and other documentation of those tests to take back and improve your crash reconstruction job performance. Each and every attendee leaves the conference with a data DVD that includes all of the crash test data (including high resolution video, digital pictures, CDR data, drawing files, and more) and speaker Power Points.
The crash tests are conducted at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on the first Monday of the conference. All attendees will be bused to the Speedway (or you can take your own car) where we will spend a full day crash cars. An air-conditioned tent and refreshments are provided along with lunch. This is a great opportunity to see live crash scenarios and network with your peers. Bring your camera and/or video cameras as we allow you to use your own equipment if you wish. Our crash team will also be photographing and videotaping all crashes from multiple angles with will all be included on the conference data DVD.
Following crash day we are back at the Palace Station Hotel for two days of technical presentations from leading subject matter experts. The ARC-CSI Crash Conference prides itself on bringing a variety of exceptional speakers and presentation topics to expand your knowledge of collision reconstruction and investigation. On the final day of the conference the ARC-CSI Crash Team presents each crash scenario conducted on day one with examples of how to use the data for future review and comparison.
The CDR Summit is a comprehensive training summit to further the knowledge of those who use the Bosch CDR Tool or who are involved with the collection and analysis of vehicle crash data. This summit covers user applications, case studies, legal issues, legislation and future development of CDR and EDR data collection.
