Since 1941, ESD has run some of the nation’s most popular and successful exam prep courses for both the FE (Fundamentals of Engineering) and PE (Professional Engineer – Principles and Practice of Engineering) designations in a wide variety of disciplines.
This year’s FE review courses begin Tuesday, Aug. 15 for civil, electrical and mechanical engineers. The PE exam review courses begin Saturday, Aug. 26 for civil, mechanical, electrical and environmental engineers. Course prices range from $670 to $899.
ESD guarantees the courses, giving those who take the prep class and fail the exam the right to take the course again free within two years, except for a $50 course materials fee.
