Irvine Institute of Technology is celebrating its 43rd year of providing outstanding nationwide PE (Civil) license review seminars. These comprehensive seminars are taught by noted experts and practitioners specializing in the subjects they are teaching. The seminars utilize our own 9-volume PE (Civil) Manuals which are now in 11th Edition along with applicable codes and standards as references. Over 35,000 engineers have already taken these seminars or purchased our publications.
The 84 hours seminar covers all subjects of Civil Engineering. This is a fantastic opportunity hitherto unavailable for those who are motivated to learn and need more to time to study and benefit ahead of the seminar dates. Please register early, get the manuals, and start your study. There is a lot of material to study and cover.
NCEES has changed the exam specifications beginning with the April 2008 examinations with new codes and new options. Please refer to www.ncees.org for complete details. PE (Civil) registrants taking IIT seminars must order the NCEES publications – 2010 PE (Civil) Sample Problems and Solutions’. These are five NCEES publications for PE (Civil) one for each depth area
It is a requirement for IIT registrants who are planning to attend our seminars to buy one or more of five manuals since we will be covering both breadth and depth areas in all the five subject areas. Because of strict Copyright issues we cannot print these problems in our manuals but we will be discussing the solution techniques to these problems in our seminars. It is also very difficult for us to delineate what is breadth and what is depth. Perhaps, breadth problems are easier and depth problems more difficult. So we are no longer differentiating between breadth and depth and differentiating only by the five areas.
Morning (AM) Breadth Portion: – 40 problems – All required
All examinees during the AM session must answer eight (8) questions from each of the five areas
Construction (8) Geotechnical (8) Structures (8) Transportation (8) and Water Res and Env (8)
Afternoon (PM) Depth Portion: – 40 problems – Examinees must select one ‘primary’ depth area only depending on their experience. For the afternoon portion of the exam, there are now more problems than before in each of the primary depth areas. The number of questions for each ‘primary’ depth area is shown below.
The instructor’s live image is seen on the top side window. The middle window shows the names of off-site live students viewing the lecture. The bottom window shows a ‘chat box’ where off-site live students can send messages to the staff. These messages are viewed by staff at IIT. The instructor normally reviews the messages during breaks and replies or comments as necessary.
The seminar is now offered in Breadth and five Depth formats. ‘Design Standards’ are lists of publications which the NCEES examiners reference for the examinations. Specific ‘Design Standards’ are identified for three of the five depth areas.
Prior to the initiation of National PE (Civil) NCEES Examinations, there used to be one required Seismic and one required Engineering Surveying problem in California PE (Civil) examinations. Since NCEES Exam does not have Engineering Surveying Problems, State of California introduced a 2.5 hour Engineering Surveying Exam to test the competency of its PE (Civil) registrants in Engineering Surveying. The exam is also more practice orientated. Seminars conducted by IIT are very much practice orientated with instrument and field demonstrations, practice videos and trial multiple choice class examinations. No significant changes for this portion of the exam since many years. Please refer to www.pels.ca.gov for further details.
