Saint Martin’s offers review classes to help engineers prepare for FE/PE exams

December 6, 2007

Saint Martin’s University has opened registration for classes designed to help individuals prepare for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam and Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) exam. Those pursuing a professional license in engineering, including civil and mechanical engineering, must pass these exams.

The review classes for both exams will be held on Saint Martin’s Lacey campus during the spring semester. The FE review classes, which run Jan. 24 to March 25, take place 6.00 – 8.00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays; the cost for this course is $495 ($295 for SMU students). The PE review classes, which run Jan. 23 to March 26, take place 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. on Wednesdays; the cost is $530 ($480 for SMU Alumni). Registration is open to the public; early registration is recommended to guarantee a spot.

In Washington State, the FE and PE exams are offered twice a year. State licensing boards require that individuals either pass or be waived of the FE exam before taking the PE exam. In 2008, the FE exams are scheduled for April 12 and Oct. 25, and the PE exams for April 11 and Oct. 24. More details, including exam registration dates and locations, will be available in late December. To learn more, call 877-536-7729 or click here.

The PE and FE exams are administered by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES), a national non-profit organization composed of engineering and surveying licensing boards representing all states and U.S. territories. NCEES develops, scores, and administers the examinations used for engineering and surveying licensure throughout the United States.
