So, what are you waiting for? Let's get started and pass this test!

The course is built off the NCEES specifications for the breadth portion of the exam. It will also help you with your depth based on the breadth topics covered. It is assumed that each student has a copy the new handbook from the NCEES. If not get one on your NCEES account! We still like the CERM and recommend it from PPI including the associated practice problems book called the Civil Engineering Practice Problems (CEPP), which we assign our homework. It's not absolutely required, but if you want homework assignments we'll be giving them from that book.

Everything we cover will refer to equations out of the NCEES handbook so make sure you have that one! You'll also want your codes and standards for your particular depth exam. Those are a must for your studies!

Frequently Asked Questions

Will this help me with my depth exam?
Absolutely. While the focus IS on the breadth section of the exam, the portions we do cover for your depth section will help. We also tell you what to do to prepare for your depth section and outline that in The Ultimate Homework Planner.
How long do I have access to the course?
It depends on your access level. You can buy month to month, a six-month plan, or a yearly deal.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us at [email protected] in the first 15 days and we will give you a full refund. No questions asked.
Do I need to buy any books for your course?
No books are required for the course, but it is assumed that you will have purchased the Civil Engineering Reference Manual and the Practice Problems that are associated with that book (get both at The "CERM" is THE most common book for the civil PE. Get it. We use it a lot and our recommended homework comes from the Practice Problems. With the exam going CBT we'll also reference the PE Reference Handbook which you can get for free in your NCEES account. You'll also want to get a hold of any code books you need for your own depth section.
What can I print or download?
All videos will have downloadable slides associated with the lectures. You can also download the practice exams and any other related material offered in the "downloads section" associated with your access level. Videos cannot be downloaded as they are proprietary to the site. A PDF of every video practice problem is also downloadable.
Is there a guarantee that I will pass?
While we wish we could guarantee that - passing is really left up to the individual student and is a result of how much work you put into studying and practicing. We do not make a guarantee that you'll pass, but this course will give you a helpful framework for success and depending on your access level you will have plenty of support from us to get there.
Is there a certificate of completion?
Why, yes there is. After you finish the course at 100% you can receive a certificate to share with all of your co-workers. Just let us know you need one :)
How long is the course?
The course has an introduction module, 8 lecture modules (with sub-modules) following the NCEES specifications, and a conclusion module. The videos for each lecture run from 10-40 minutes. So, there's a lot of content. This doesn't include the 200+ video practice problems that run anywhere from 2 to 6 minutes. You'll need time to digest this and that's the point. You should be giving yourself at least 3 months to study hard for the PE exam and we will be here to help every step of the way.
Is the course live or recorded?
The course is made up of recorded lectures and video practice problems that you can view at your own pace. Live lectures or questions can be done as needed, but between the private Facebook community and communicating with the team through email support, we can typically tackle any questions you have or any challenges you need help with very quickly.
Is the PE exam easy?
No. That's why we are here to help you navigate it. First-time takers fail 32-42% of the time. Repeat takers fail over 60% of the time (ouch). Don't worry about the pass rates though - take this course and you'll ace it.

"This was my second time taking the exam. I took it a year ago for the first time after being out of college for over 10 years. I had a huge obstacle to overcome with remembering the course material and educating myself on how to study again. It takes a lot of discipline and time but I really wanted to achieve this PE so I put aside other things in the process. The first go I took the School of PE's pre-recorded course. The notes were great but there were so many long lectures to listen to that I found myself not being able to do any problems in the time that I had, so I pretty much took the test the first time without doing problems. Big mistake! The second time I wanted to switch it up, so I found the Civil Engineering Academy's site and I enrolled in the class. I love it. It's fast paced and provides lots of great notes, sample problems, and a syllabus to you listen to the lectures or do problems in your reference books. Do not just listen - be an active participant. Know your Civil Engineering Reference Manual (CERM) like the back of your hand...I'm so grateful for this course. Isaac did a great job, and I would recommend this course to anybody taking the civil PE exam."
