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 Level I and Level II CDR Technician Courses. The Level I & II Technician courses do not go into any analysis of the imaged data. Both courses are 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 Technician Levels I & II.
CDR Technician Level I
(Basic CDR Technician) 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 introductory level 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.
Upon successful completion of this course the attendee will be recognized as a Basic CDR Technician.
CDR Technician Level II (CDR Technician Certification) This course is best suited for field investigators, insurance investigators and adjusters, or those involved in vehicle documentation and examinations.
This hands-on training follows up on the training received in the CDR Technician Level I course. It 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.
