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 session in the following discipline: Mechanical Engineering.

Course Outline
This course is also offered through our video conferencing system for students in remote locations, check for special times. 

This program is an intensive revision for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam afternoon session (Mechanical Engineering Discipline).   Description: This program is designed for exam candidates who want to pass the fundamentals of engineering exam offered by APEGGAAPEGBC 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 afternoon session in the following discipline: Mechanical 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 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 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 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.    Required Handbook "The FE Supplied - Reference Handbook” is required in the class and it could be downloaded here.   Recommended Textbooks Michael R.

Cancellation Policy
If you wish to withdraw from a course, you must advise us, in writing, including the official receipt. Our policies regarding refund are:

More than fifteen business days in advance: a full refund minus $50.00 administration charge.

Fifteen or less business days in advance: a transfer to another course or a credit, valid for one year, to another GIC course can be considered. Credits are transferable within your organization.

If the course has been running for more than 2 weeks, or after the course has started, an 80% credit towards another GIC course may be considered, if notice is received before the start date of the second session. After this time, no refunds or credits will be issued. If a speaker is not available due to unforeseen circumstances, another speaker of equal ability will be substituted.

GIC reserves the right to cancel or change the date or location of its events. GIC's responsibility will, under no circumstances, exceed the amount of the fee collected.
