Prerequisite(s)

You must have completed IPTM’s Advanced Traffic Crash Investigation course, or its equivalent.

Note(s)

IMPORTANT: You will need to provide a scientific calculator. Other required training and reference materials will be shipped to you before the first day of class.

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 and Adobe Acrobat Reader (free download) are required. Some assignments will require you to upload a scanned or photographed project.
