Damaged DLC Connector
Advanced Troubleshooting & Vehicle Systems for the CDR/EDR Operator-Technician (5-day, 40-hour course)
This course is pre-approved for 40 ACTAR CEUs.
Click here to see what our former students had to say about this course.
This course provides the CDR/EDR Tool user with an advanced skillset to conduct DLC imaging in more difficult situations where other users might not be able to. Attendees will learn to troubleshoot vehicle electrical systems as well as “connecting” to the vehicle when the DLC is damaged or not accessible. The experienced CDR Tool user will gain a better understanding of the various vehicle system components that “provide” information to the ACM, their locations, as well as how to “test” them.
Most, if not all, of the skills taught in this class will apply to other EDR tools such as Hyundai/Kia.
Note: We no longer have a training facility for this class and are looking for other available options one of which is to present the bulk of the class live online.
Toyota Safety Sense Systems & Data Retrieval Course (2 to 2.5 hours)
It is anticipated this course would be approved for a minimum of two ACTAR CEUs.
This course will provide an understanding of the various Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) systems, various Vehicle Control History (VCH) data parameters & triggers, the Techstream system, getting the data, and the PCS data viewer. A brief discussion will take place regarding the "analysis" of the PCS data output and how to link the VCH data to a Bosch CDR report.
This course is available as an in-person course and can be combined with other EDR tool training courses.
It has also been presented live online via Zoom and we anticipate offering it live online on a regular basis.
These courses are best suited for law enforcement crash investigators, field investigators, insurance investigators and adjusters, or those involved in vehicle documentation and examinations.
All in-person Crash Data Retrieval (CDR) tool and Event Data Recorder (EDR) tool courses include lecture and hands-on activities by experienced instructors. Live online courses include lecture and some self-paced hands-on activities by students following the live presentation.
Attendees are not required to own the factory specific tools (Bosch CDR tool, Hyundai-Kia EDR tool, Tesla EDR Tool) in order to attend these courses, although it is strongly encouraged. Some of the self-paced activities will require access to the respective CDR/EDR tool.
