Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam Preparation  "Other Engineering Disciplines"  Morning & Afternoon Exam Session (48 PDHs)
 Course Outline

Description:
This program is designed for exam candidates who want to pass the fundamentals of engineering exam offered by APEGGA, APEGBC and NCEES. Conditions and regulations of the exam could be found on these associations' respective websites.
The FE exam is 8 hours in length: a four hour morning session and a four hour afternoon session. This workshop has been designed to train on how to answer the morning session and afternoon "Other Discipline" exam questions which is common between all engineering disciplines: Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, etc. The morning session consists of general questions that all candidates answer. The afternoon session is discipline specific where the candidate is allowed to pick the discipline to complete (including an "Other Disciplines" category).
Objectives:
This course system is designed to follow both the content and format of NCEES for each exam. By utilizing the live class room sessions for your study, you increase comprehension and get a more flexible and focused review.
Who should attend:
APEGGA and APEGBC exam candidates, NCEES FE exam candidates and any one who wishes to refresh his/her engineering background in any of the offered modules. This workshop has been designed for people who are out of school for many years, who are not proficient with the material, who did not take all examsubjects in school, who are not engineering majors and for who have forgotten "Everything".
Classroom Course Format:
Class room course format is composed of day lectures accompanied by assignments which will be an indicator of your success. At the end of all sessions an inclass or take home exam will be marked and returned to you to help you evaluate your passing chance in the real exam.
Special Features:
The live class room and distance teaching sessions are offered by engineers who have intensive teaching experience in the adult learning environment. Each subject will be reviewed fundamentally and by practice questions that simulate the real exam questions to let you live the exam mode at all stages.
