You should take these review courses if you are preparing for or planning to take the NCEES exam for PE licensure in the State of Michigan. The review courses presume that you have been exposed to the fundamental principles of engineering relevant to your discipline but need a “refresher” review of core topics.

  • You will learn from instructors who have first-hand knowledge of the course material;
  • You will be provided with a comprehensive binder of course notes to aid you during your exam;
