PE Civil Exam Review Course

Information about our PE Civil exam review course


Our PE Civil class consists of 84 hours of comprehensive lectures and practice sessions and is designed using NCEES’ exam specifications. The course is divided into two parts. The first part includes 56 hours of fundamentals review, which covers the common topics of the breadth and depth exams. The second part includes 28 hours of discipline specific review. Each student chooses one discipline specific review of their choice. The depth options include construction, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resources and environmental.

Our 84-hour review course consists of refresher sessions and workshop sessions:

  • Refresher Sessions - These prepare students by reviewing topics that are critical for the PE Civil exam. This section will allow students to experience some theory and high-probability problems. Approximately 60% of the total class time is spent on refresher sessions.
  • Workshop Sessions - These allow our students to practice and solve several problems that are standalone and require numerical solutions. Approximately 40% of the total class time is spent on workshop sessions. The workshops consist exclusively of solving problems, which is critical for the PE Civil exam.

Our PE Civil courses are offered through three learning formats: Onsite, Live Online, and Ondemand.
