About the Course

PPI’s Civil PE Live Online Review Course provides the tools you need to effectively prepare for and pass the NCEES Civil PE exam. Since 1975, our time-tested curriculum, expert instructors, and comprehensive materials have successfully prepared more than 3 million examinees.

In addition to 80 hours of live online and OnDemand expert instruction, you’ll complete homework from the 15th editions of the Civil Engineering Reference Manual, Civil Engineering Practice Problems, and other best-selling materials by PPI Founder Michael R. Lindeburg, PE. Please read below for a complete list of course features.

Your Review Course Package Includes:

  • 80 hours of online instruction from an industry expert, with a thorough concentration on exam topics. The 80 hours is broken down as follows:

    • 42 hours of live online lectures. Follow along and interact with the class as your instructor reviews key engineering concepts. All live lectures are also recorded and posted to your course page for OnDemand viewing at any time throughout the course.

    • 10 hours of live online office hours. Ask questions about the homework, review additional practice problems, and interact with the instructor and other students. All office hours are also recorded and posted to your course page for OnDemand viewing at any time throughout the course.

    • 28 hours of OnDemand video lessons. The Ace the PE: Civil Videos series includes more than 30 video lessons by Andy Richardson, PE. Each lesson covers one topic from either the breadth or depth section of the Civil PE exam, and can be watched in any order so you can focus your attention on the engineering concepts most important to you. Each video lesson demonstrates how key engineering concepts are applied on the Civil PE exam by walking you through a step-by-step solution for each practice problem.

Testimonials From Past Students

We surveyed our Civil PE live online review course students right after they took their exams. Here's what they had to say about our courses:

  • "Andy is great. You can tell that he really loves engineering, and helping others to be better engineers."

  • "Great job. This course really motivated me to study my best and thoroughly prepared me for the PE exam. The study materials were optimal, and when I looked around the exam room, everybody seemed to have a copy of the CERM from PPI."

  • "I thought the homework selection was a good representation of the material covered in class and on the test."

  • "The live lectures gave the opportunity to ask questions and receive quick answers from the instructor, Andy, or another engineer with a different background and expertise."

  • "I live in Italy and didn't want to get up at 3:00 a.m. for the class, so the recordings were great. I also liked being able to pause during the lectures while doing practice problems to ensure I understood how to work the problems."

  • "The Office Hours were a great place to hash out problems and problem solving methods. Loved it!"

  • "If anything, the exam ended up being a lot easier than I thought it was going to be, mostly because of this Review Course."

  • "The class is worth every penny and I think Andy Richardson is a great instructor. I greatly appreciated the PPI material and course with helping me with the Civil PE exam."

  • "I liked the course and I felt very prepared. It was very helpful to know what topics to concentrate on so that I didn't have to re-read the entire CERM."

  • "I thought a huge benefit of PPI was that I was prepared for a harder test than the Civil PE proved to be. The homework, practice test, and how the instructor described the test kept me on a good track. I won't know if I passed for several weeks, but I feel as if I performed well and have a good chance on a passing score."

  • "It helped to know that the whole class was going through it together. It was also nice knowing you could ask a question and get an answer in real time."

  • "I liked the variety of problems answered and how it was tailored to the students. Some of us have done this test more than once and that knowledge and experience is very insightful."

  • "The review course did what it was supposed to do. It got me to commit to a systematic approach to studying. The course forced me to be methodical in problem solving and be aware of the bigger picture."

  • "I appreciate that you let students retake the course for free, as long as they have the required materials, if they do not pass the exam. This is the main reason I signed up for the PPI review course."

Useful Morning Prep Review by Michael
I would recommend this course to anyone struggling with the morning portion of the exam and feels they need to brush up on these topics. If you are looking to do better in the afternoon portion of the exam this is not the course for you. It does help you stick to an outlined study guideline but you will need to put more time into studying than simply following the course lectures and doing HW problems. (Posted on 5/16/2016)

Good Review Course Review by Joseph
This is a good review course and the review materials are good quality. Make sure to keep up with the homework for the best experience. I had to play catch-up due to a busy schedule and life events, but if you can do it, it works best. There's lots of homework. (Posted on 5/9/2016)

Helpful beyond words Review by Waleed
It was helpful beyond words to have a real perspective on what portions of the CERM study material were focused on breadth versus depth for each Civil discipline. This greatly narrowed my scope of studying to what was really going to be required for my particular discipline, and for that I am gratefully thankful. Thank you very much for developing a text series and online program that encompasses the vast curriculum of Civil Engineering and helped me pass the Civil/Structural exam the first time.
