Civil PE Review Course

Our Civil PE course prepares working engineers to take their licensure exam to help them focus on the key tips and methods for completing the exam successfully.

Upcoming Course


Thank you for your interest in our programs. We will not be offering the Civil PE review due to the change in the exam format, timing and logistics. We hope to offer this class in future years.

Course overview

Taught by an expert faculty of licensed professors and working engineers, this live, six-week course is specially designed to help you prepare for the licensure exam by segmenting the exam into digestible components and delivering the key points likely to be covered.

During the first-class session, recently licensed PEs lead a discussion group on exam-day basics and what to expect.

The rest of the class sessions cover technical areas — either a breadth or depth area  according to the schedule, from one of six areas.

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

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.

Who Should Take This Course?

This course is offered in the Fall, so engineers planning to take the Civil Engineering PE exam in October or the next April should attend.

Additionally, PEs may find this course useful for updating skills in areas outside their normal practice with the benefit of earning three professional development hours for each technical session attended — enough for more than two years’ requirements!


We are proud to support licensure candidates’ preparation since 2009. See what past years’ class participants say about the course.
