  • Are you emphasizing Transportation, like a structured program, and contact with a live instructor?

Frequently Asked Questions

How likely are you to pass the PE Civil exam?

Over a thousand engineers have succeeded 
using our online courses.

Video streaming is a great way to take a review course. By not having to travel I was able to use my time efficiently. I liked the organization and the emphasis on Transportation. I also found the practice tests to be crucial in preparing for the exam. The review course prepared me better than I thought. I will definitely recommend this course to my co-workers.
