CDR Tool Data Analyst: October 21-25, 2024: Worcester, MA sponsored by the Worcester Police Department


Working first with Vetronix to help develop the initial “Vetronix CDR Tool Training Certification” course in 2000 and then working uninterrupted with Bosch since 2003, the Collision Safety Institute continues to offer unparalleled, comprehensive, and detailed training and support on the Bosch CDR Tool data for reconstruction applications. Current content of the CDR Data Analyst’s Course covers the very latest in crash data from all supported manufacturers and is up-to-date with the latest version of the CDR Tool software.

This constantly refreshed course remains the single most thorough, industry-leading, most widely recognized, CDR Data Analyst course available anywhere. Don’t be short-changed or misled by individuals proposing some sort of combination technician/analyst, “EDR methodologies” or “update” class as having anything comparable to the content or completeness offered here. Other more recent upstarts are just that: light on experience and real, meaningful value. Anything else is simply out-of-date “EDR Light.”


For those who have completed the basic CDR Technician Course, this CDR Tool Data Analyst course provides insight into the function of the automobile Event Data Recorder (EDR) function or subcomponent, interpretation of the recorded data as well as expanded analytical skills enabling the appropriate application of a Bosch Crash Data Retrieval (CDR) Tool generated data translation report to a situationally complete crash reconstruction.

There is no hands-on “downloading” activity in this class since it is assumed that those in attendance have recently completed the Technician course and understand that process along with the underlying concepts of data storage in the EDR subcomponent, CDR software troubleshooting and related error messages and their solution(s). For that reason, there is no need to bring a complete CDR Tool to this course. However, attendees must have a computer because course materials and exercise data sets are delivered digitally. Activity in this course is focused on reading, understanding, and applying a CDR Tool data translation report to a normal, situationally complete reconstruction.
