COURSE INFORMATION:
We are pleased to offer you a two day training class on Acceleration and Vericom Computer Familiarization for traffic accident investigation. This class includes instruction for the VC3000 and VC4000 units.  A certificate will be issued to everyone who attends and participates.  The cost of the two day class is $175.00 per person and $350 per person for the advanced three day class.  This class is ACTAR approved for 12 CEUs.

First Day:

•Deceleration (skid friction test):  Actual braking testing to measure drag factor speed, time and distance.  Each person will have an opportunity to operate a vehicle in a panic braking situation and/or operate the Vericom during the skid test.
•Coefficient of friction:  Explanation and demonstration of static friction, peak friction, slip friction, sliding friction.
•Braking systems:  Comparing standard brakes & ABS.
•Acceleration:  from a STOP and from a known velocity.
•Gradient and Superelevation:  How to measure grade.
•How to present the Vericom in a court of law:  Acceptance of technology and calibration.
•A certificate will be issued to everyone who attends and participates.
 
Second Day:

•Demonstration and training on Profile software, graphic and displaying data.
•Analyzing the deceleration curve.
•Creating a paper trail for a courtroom presentation.
•Using the Vericom to prove your hypothesis.  Demonstrating your theory.
•Lateral acceleration:  How to measure and when to apply lateral G.
•Measuring brake pedal pressure.
•Measuring reaction time.
•Measuring air pressure.
•Introduction of the OBDII connector interface to the Vericom.
•Measuring low speed impacts with an accelerometer.
•Application of multi axis accelerometer.
•A certificate will be issued to everyone who attends and participates.
