Distance - Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam Preparation - "Other Engineering Disciplines" - CBT (48 PDHs)

The (FE) distance education program works as follows:

  • Each course is 6-12 weeks in duration.
  • You will receive a set of notes each week covering the course material via the internet.  In addition, you will receive practice problems and assignments very similar to the associations' past exams.
  • A one hour video-conference session will be conducted by your instructor each week. The objective of this session is to assist in solving the assignments as well as answer student questions that should be sent to instructor early enough prior to the meeting time. In addition with being able to communicate with the instructor, you will also be able to communicate with other students in the same class and watch their questions answered as well. A high speed internet connection is strongly recommended for this feature.
  • Each set of assignments must be completed and submitted by the indicated date and your completed assignment will be marked and returned by your instructor.
  • Upon completion of the assignments, you will be sent a final exam. It is recommended that you try to simulate the actual exam conditions (i.e., no aids and a time limit) when writing it. You will then submit this final exam for review and marking. 
  • To gain the most from your course, it is highly recommended that you participate fully in all discussions and assignments.  Please remember that each course has 6 weeks duration and set dates for assignments to be submitted and a set date to submit the final exam. You will be informed of these dates when you receive the course schedule.

This program is an intensive revision for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) (Others Engineering Discipline). You will be given assignments to solve and a final exam to measure your success percentage.

This program is designed for exam candidates who want to pass the fundamentals of engineering exam offered by
 APEGAAPEGBC and NCEES. Conditions and regulations of the exam could be found on these associations' respective websites.

The FE CBT exam is 6 hours in length
 in the following discipline: Others Engineering

This course system is designed to follow both the content and format for the NCEES exam. By utilizing this course for your study, you increase comprehension and get a more flexible and focused review.
Who should attend: 
APEGA and APEGBC exam candidates, NCEES FE exam candidates and anyone 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".
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” Professional Publications Inc. is required in the class and can be downloaded here for free. 
Recommended Textbooks Michael R. Linderburg, “FE/EIT Sample Examinations” Professional Publications Inc.
Michael R. Linderburg, “
1001 Solved Engineering Fundamentals Problems” Professional Publications Inc.
