A mainly distance based course over 9 months with a five day summer school in July. This course replaces the City and Guilds Forensic Collision Investigation Course withdrawn by City and Guilds from 2013. This course can also be studied mainly in the classroom.
The course starts by revisiting the maths and physics necessary to understand the discipline before applying these principles to the techniques used in collision reconstruction. Collision Fundamentals (module ENGS1003) concentrates on maths, physics, statistics and collision reconstruction techniques. ENGS1002 deals with the production of case files.
During the summer school you will be taught how to skid test, recognise marks and record scenes.
This course assumes that you have studied mathematics in the past attaining a GCSE pass or equivalent.
We highly recommend that you sit Maths for CI's before attempting the UCPD.
Distance learning with a one week summer school. The summer school is run from our Gloucestershire base in the UK. We also run a summer school in Australia.
You will need a scientific calculator, a computer and access to the internet and some form of headphones or earphones. We recommend any Casio calculator with a 'Natural Display'.
This method of studying the UCPD means that the majority of the course is taught by distance learning. Throughout the course you have access to a tutor who will assist and guide you when required.
Your course tutors will mark and comment on your coursework. There are a number of phase tests during the 9 months with a final unseen examination at the end of the course. Practical work is assessed during the residential module. Coursework is submitted prior to the date of the final examination.
