Our past students have great things to say about our PE Civil course:
"I've taken several PE review courses and by far the School of PE review course is the ‘Gold Standard’" There is no doubt that the School of PE is the reason why I finally passed! Don't waste your time and money with other review courses!"

"I really appreciate the School of PE program. All of the communications were fast and helpful, we received the notes on time, and the entire structure of the class was great. All of the instructors were great, but the depth instructor was wonderful. Once again I appreciate School of PE for helping me to pass the PE!"

About the PE Civil Exam
The PE Civil exam is an 8-hour exam. All examinees take a common 4-hour breadth section and then are separated into their chosen depth section for the remainder of the exam. Examinees have the option to choose the construction, geotechnical, structural, transportation, or water resources & environmental depth. When the PE Civil exam is passed, the examinee will then be considered a professional civil engineer.
According to NCEES, the national pass rate for the April 2018 PE Civil exam was 62%. School of PE’s PE Civil students had a much higher pass rate that the national average.
