Frequently Asked Questions

How likely are you to pass the PE Civil exam?

Over a thousand engineers have succeeded 
using our online courses.

The course was very helpful. I think the whole package (video, work problems, and online exams) worked very well. I’ve already recommended the course to a couple of people in my office that are looking to take the exam.
