During the first class session, recently licensed PEs lead a discussion group on exam day basics and what to expect – helping you to focus on the key tips and methods for completing the exam successfully.  The rest of the class sessions cover the technical areas, either a breadth or depth area, according to the schedule , from one of the following six areas:

  • Structural
  • Materials
  • Geotechnical
  • Construction
  • Transportation
  • Water Resources and Environmental

At the conclusion of the class, you have the opportunity to take a sample morning exam, which will help to prepare you for the exam format, question types and testing environment.  While this is a review course, it is no guarantee of successfully completing the PE exam.


This course is offered in Fall only, so engineers who are planning to take the Civil Engineering PE Exam in October or the next April should attend.  Professional engineers may find this course useful for updating skills in areas outside their normal practice with the benefit of earning PDHs.  By taking this course, a PE can earn three PDHs for each technical session attended—enough for more than two years’ requirements!
