Pedestrian/Bicycle Crash Investigation - Level I (Online)  

Online instructor-led course conducted over five consecutive weeks.

Pedestrian and bicycle crashes are one of the most frequent types of injurious crashes in urban areas. Because of their unique and challenging nature, special techniques are required to investigate and reconstruct these incidents.

This course addresses the special dynamics involved in pedestrian and bicycle traffic crashes. Techniques will be discussed to help locate one of the most critical aspects of a pedestrian collision – the point or area of impact.

You will also gain a greater understanding of perception/reaction times, victim injury analysis, and environmental factors that can affect a pedestrian or bicycle collision. You will learn to recognize and interpret the evidence and correlate it with the collision sequence.

Topics Include

  • Pedestrian crash problems
  • Pedestrian impact dynamics and kinematics
  • Collection of data
  • Pedestrian conspicuity
  • Perception and Reaction time/human factors
  • Reconstruction techniques
  • Bicycle collision analysis
  • Hit and run investigation techniques

Audience

Law enforcement and private traffic crash investigators, claims adjusters, engineers, attorneys, safety officers, military investigative personnel, animators and graphic designers

Course Length

40 hours

Prerequisite(s)

You must have completed IPTM’s At-Scene Traffic Crash/Traffic Homicide Investigation course, or its equivalent.

Online Details

Online environment: This course is interactive, instructor-led, and divided into weekly modules. At the end of each week, the current module will close and a new module will open. This way, the entire class progresses through the materials together, just like classroom training. There are no provisions for you to skip modules or work ahead of the rest of the class.

This is not a self-paced course. Although there are no specific times that you must be online, you will be required to complete assignments each week by the deadlines posted within the course. Hence, you must be committed to the course and invest the time necessary for successful completion. You should plan to dedicate an average of five to eight hours per week to the course activities.

The instructors will be available by email and on discussion boards throughout the course. They will be your guides and will assist you with questions and advanced discussions at every step along the way.

Computer requirements: You will complete the course entirely online. A dependable broadband internet connection with a Windows or Mac computer is required. Some assignments will require you to upload a scanned or photographed project.
