    Advanced Collision Reconstruction with CDR Applications


    This class is intended for reconstructionists who want to leverage the information contained in typical EDR reports. One need not be an EDR-analyst, or even be particularly familiar with EDR data, but those skills and familiarity with basic crash analysis techniques will improve the value of the class. The room is limited to 26 in-person seats, though online Virtual-attendance is also available via Zoom (same price).

    WHERE: Michael Briggs Public Safety Building, 405 Valley St, Manchester NH 03103
