7 Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration CMV Crash Training Class Development The One-Day Comprehensive Train-the-Trainer Course has been presented to over 2,000 officers. Developed customized Train-the-Trainer materials for 21 States. NISR has conducted 38 Train-the-Trainer classes. NISR has been requested to teach additional classes in each of the last 2 years for a few States. 44 classes performed by State Trainers in California, Wisconsin, Colorado and Louisiana (only a partial list of states).

21 Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration California Worked with CHP on updates to the 555D and matching revisions to the CHP Collision Investigation Manual. Developed a custom training class based on the fields from the new 555D using the materials from the full-day training class. Prepared expanded resource materials: A photo and definition review of Vehicle Configuration and Cargo Body Type An example case using the new 555D Initial train-the-trainer held January 3, 2007 in Sacramento. As of June, the class has reached 591 officers in California in CHP and allied agencies.

22 Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Oklahoma Worked with Oklahoma on updates to their Traffic Collision Report and matching revisions to the Instruction Manual. Developed a custom training class using the materials from the full-day training class. Held training class in September 2006 for trainers from OHP and local law enforcement. Oklahoma DPS incorporated the class materials into the state-wide training on the new report form. Assisted DPS with developing the extraction logic to pass data from the state system to SAFETYNET.
