FE/EIT Exam Preparation: Electrical Engineering

Program Description

Cal State LA’s Fundamental Engineer/Engineer-In-Training (FE/EIT) test prep review course prepares the candidate for the FE examination with National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES). The 60-hour review classes are held at the university main campus on 10 consecutive Saturdays and a few Sundays from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. in the late summer and into fall in preparation for the October examination. 

Who Should Enroll?

The FE/EIT course is for qualified applicants who must register and pay for the FE examination through NCEES. Applicants complete three years or more of postsecondary engineering education, three years or more of engineering experience (e.g., work of any nature with an engineering exposure, such as with a consulting engineering firm, a construction contractor, CALTRANS, the engineering division of a public utility, etc.), or a combination of postsecondary engineering education and experience in engineering totaling three years. University students in the 3rd quarter or the 2nd semester of their junior year qualify for certification.
