Our 60-hour PE Mechanical review courses are divided into two parts:
- Refresher Classes - These prepare students by reviewing topics that are critical for the PE Mechanical exams. The course allows students to experience some theory and high-probability problems. All topics will be taught in approximately 36 hours.
- Workshop Sessions - These allow our students to practice and solve several problems that require numerical solutions. All topics will be taught in approximately 24 hours. The workshops consist exclusively of solving problems, which is critical for the PE Mechanical exams.
Our PE Mechanical exam review courses are offered through two learning formats: Live Online and Ondemand.
- Live Online - Our Live Online format provides instructor-led online sessions. This format offers live interaction with instructors and a structured study schedule. It’s just like being in a classroom except it is online. Our PE Mechanical HVAC and Refrigeration and Machine Design and Materials classes are offered on weekday evenings. Our PE Mechanical Thermal and Fluid Systems classes are offered on weekends.

What do our students say about our courses?
Check out some testimonials from past School of PE students:
"There are tons on material to study for the PE, but school of PE narrowed down what is more important to focus on, so you don't waste time studying for something that won't be in the exam."
