Data Retrieval Tool.  Technician Level 1 students are presented with a background of what Crash Data Retrieval is
and how the Crash Data Retrieval Tool evolved.  Students will learn how to recognize the vehicles covered by Bosch’s
system, as well as solve connectivity issues to ensure that crash data can be downloaded correctly.

Technician Level 1 students will learn the core terms and system components associated with the download process
and how to avoid evidence spoliation issues through utilization of the preferred methods for downloading crash data
and preserving it.  Technician Level 1 students will also be taught special handling and legal considerations
surrounding crash data retrieval.

Requirements:   Enrollment in the Technician Level 1 training class does not require the purchase a Bosch Crash
Data Retrieval Tool.

In order to receive their certification as a Level 1 Crash Data Retrieval Technician, students must pass a written final
exam.  The exam is based on the material presented throughout the in-class training, examples and reference
materials and is administered at the end of the class.   

Prerequisites: none

This course was developed by the Collision Safety Institute and is part of a standardized Technician training program
approved by the Bosch committee, made up of Bosch and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) representatives.  
This standardization is important to crash data retrieval so all Technician Level 1 students learn the proper methods
of downloading and preserving crash data.

Crash Data Services, LLC currently teaches the
Collision Safety Institute's Bosch preferred
Technician Level 1 and Technician Level 2
courses.

Those students who successfully complete our
crash data retrieval training will be qualified to
download data from those vehicles supported by
Bosch’s Crash Data Retrieval Tool, the only
publicly available diagnostic system capable of
downloading crash data from passenger car and
light truck Event Data Recorders (vehicle black
boxes).

For a full list of vehicles covered by Bosch’s
system, please

Crash data retrieval (CDR) relies upon an
instrument installed in most passenger cars,
SUVs, and trucks called an event data recorder
(EDR).

An EDR is generally part of a vehicle's airbag
control module, powertrain control module or
rollover sensor and can be configured to store
recorded information such as speed, brake use,
or restraint system performance when a vehicle
is involved in a crash event.

The above photograph shows a powertrain
control module from a 2006 Ford Expedition.

Students who enroll in the Technician Level 2
training course will have an opportunity to
download numerous EDRs.
Crash data retrieval is an important part of any
investigation involving a motor vehicle, providing
objective results.

The technician level training offered by the experts
at Crash Data Services, LLC, teaches students
how to utilize Bosch's Crash Data Retrieval Tool
for the download of data stored in a vehicle's
event data recorder (vehicle black box).
(4 – 8 Hours / ½ - 1 Day)

Course Description:  This course presents students with the opportunity to build hands-on experience in
downloading the crash data stored in a vehicle’s event data recorder (vehicle black box).  Technician Level 2 students
will perform supervised downloads of vehicle crash data via several approved means, including the Data Link
Connector (DLC) as well as direct to module downloads.  Students will have an opportunity to see and perform
downloads from all the major manufacturers covered by Bosch’s Crash Data Retrieval Tool, including General Motors
Family vehicles, Ford Family vehicles, Daimler Chrysler vehicles and Toyota Family vehicles.

Students will also be trained to accomplish a download under complex situations, while still following Bosch’s
preferred method of retrieval.   Students will learn the basic terminology and function of vehicle power systems, as
well as how to circumvent electrical system failures through a simplified back-powering method.   Students will be
exposed to various commercial back-powering rigs, as well as digital auto-ranging multi-meters for the purpose of
confirming system voltage and resistance.

Requirements: Enrollment in the Technician Level 2 training course does not require that students purchase a Bosch
Crash Data Retrieval Tool.  All airbag control modules and vehicles used during the course are provided by Crash
Data Services, LLC.

In order to receive certification as a Level 2 Crash Data Retrieval Technician, students must pass a physical
proficiency exam.  The exam requires at least one successful download via the DLC, one download using an adapter,
one direct to airbag module download, and one back-powering download through the DLC.  The exam is based on
the material presented throughout the in-class presentation, examples and reference materials and is administered
at the end of the class.

Prerequisites: To enroll in this training, students must first successfully complete the Technician Level 1 course
training.  

This course was developed by the Collision Safety Institute and is part of a standardized Technician training program
approved by the Bosch committee, made up of Bosch and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) representatives.  
This standardization is important to crash data retrieval so that all Technician Level 2 students learn the proper
methods of downloading and preserving crash data.
