  • Scenario-Based Problems
  • Tire-size based questions
  • Basic EDR questions
  • Airborne Equations and Problems

"I just wanted to let you know that I was successful in passing the ACTAR exam given at the PSP conference. I wanted to thank you again for your prep class on Sunday as I believe it was instrumental in helping me pass."--Travis Webster

"Your prep class was very helpful in passing the ACTAR exam on the first attempt."--David Sersen

"Andy's class is top notch! He is not there to teach you concepts for the first time. As an experienced reconstructionist, Andy's insight in how to take the test is just as valuable as the practice problems he provides. As long as a candidate puts the time into preparing in advance, Andy's class will bolster their confidence and allow them to complete the test with time to spare. I recommend this class to anyone."--Daniel Bates.

"This is a great class with a ton of information and techniques for both parts of the ACTAR exam. I took this class after taking the exam once and failing the second part. I had no information on the scoring or explanation of why certain areas were wrong. I now have a better understanding of what they are looking for and in particular of how to calculate and answer all of the questions, especially on the second part. This is definitely a class you want to attend if you plan on taking the ACTAR exam or even if you have taken it and need to pass either part." -- James Mooney

"I do not think I would have done well on the exam without some guidance and not having any idea what would be asked and how it would be asked." -- Joseph Cappelluti

"Andy, I got my ACTAR test results today and I have to send you a huge thank you...I passed...If you ever need a recommendation for your class just say the word." -- Todd Stephenson

"Regardless of collision reconstruction experience, anyone who wants to succeed at the accreditation exam should take Andy Rich's ACTAR Preparation course. The strategies taught are second to none." --Mark DiCocco, ACTAR 3149, Connecticut State Police.
