Kent E. Boots is a CDR Technician Trainer/Mentor and holds a current license/certification from Collision Safety Institute to teach the standardized curriculum for the two-day CDR Technician Course (formerly Level I and Level II). The CDR Technician Course does not go into any analysis of the imaged data. The CDR Technician course is the basis for, and are a required prerequisite for, the CDR Data Analyst's course.
Kent has been teaching part of the CDR Technician: Train the Trainer Certification Course since 2012. He instructs qualified and experienced CDR Data Analysts to train others to the CDR Technician Level.
This course is best suited for field investigators, insurance investigators and adjusters, or those involved in vehicle documentation and examinations. It is a required prerequisite for, the CDR Technician Level II Course.
This training exposes the Crash Data Retrieval System user to the basic functions of the Bosch CDR system. Upon completion of the course, the user should be able to confidently image data from supported vehicles as well as trouble-shoot problems collecting data.
The hands-on portion of this two-day class happens mostly on day two. It follows up on the training received on day one and offers individual or small group guided instruction in the following: ◊ In vehicle DLC data imaging ◊ Module location and identification ◊ Direct-to-module data imaging ◊ Practical booster and adaptor applications (ACM, PCM) ◊ "Repowering" airbag control modules to allow in vehicle DLC data imaging
The instruction and subsequent hands-on approach combined with the evaluation by a Trainer/Mentor completes the CDR Technician Level certification.
Attendees are not required to own the Bosch CDR System in order to attend this training, although it is strongly encouraged. Attendees that own a CDR System should bring a laptop computer with the most current version of the software installed. The instructor's computer and CDR System will be available for use by attendees for the required in-class imaging of various modules.
