Course abstract

The goal of study course is to fix in practice knowledges acquired during study course in case of composition of renewal/repair expenses of estimated coast in hard road accident for: automobile, tractor, farm machine, after photography and after video materials.

Learning outcomes and their assessment

Knowledge: to identify defects of ground motor vehicles; in determination of value and repair costs.
Skills: students are able to rectify ground motor vehicle and to calculate repair coasts after road traffic accident of in cases of other failures as during roadworthiness tests, as well as during analysis of photographs and video materials.
Competence: to make defectation of ground motor vehicle an individually, to calculate value of damaged ground motor vehicle, to create repair or renewal coasts of ground motor vehicle and constantly develop problems of technical character which are related with peculiarities of repair of ground motor vehicles.
