Course Outline
Daily Schedule:
8:00 am - Registration first day only
8:30 am - Session begins
6:00 pm - Adjournment   Full day study starting 8 am –6 pm, Saturdays and Sundays for three weekends. This program is an intensive revision for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam afternoon session (Civil Engineering Discipline). Preparation over three weeks of duration, each session is composed of full day teaching classes every Saturday and Sunday.  You will be given assignments to solve and a final exam to measure your success percentage.    You will receive the course calendar by email after your registration.   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 web sites.

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 afternoon in the following stream: Civil Engineering. 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 a general 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 wish to refresh his/her engineering background in any of the offered modules. This workshop is been designed for  people who are out of school many years, who are not proficient with the material, who did not take all exam-subjects 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 in-class 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 professional 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.
