Professional Development

How would you like to spend eight hours taking an exam that covers what you learned in college? Could you remember the essentials? For 17+ years this annual course has helped engineers re-learn, and learn for the first time, what is necessary to pass the PE Exam.

Engineering is regulated by licensing boards in each state. These boards set high standards for professional engineers (PEs) to protect the public. It's becoming more and more common for employers to offer the prime jobs with higher salaries to PEs.

Civil and Mechanical Engineering tracks are presented by subject experts in the evenings to fit 8:00-5:00 schedules. Anyone who completes our course and doesn't pass the PE Exam can re-take the course at no additional charge.

PE Review Course


12 three-hour sessions on Thursdays from 6:00 - 9:00pm, running January 14, 2016 through April 7, 2016. It includes a mock exam. There will be no meeting during the Boise school district's spring break.  The State Board of Professional Engineers will be holding the state PE exam on April 15, 2016.


Classes will likely be held at the University of Idaho Water Center, 322 E. Front St, Boise, ID 83702.


UI Boise has offered this 12-week Professional Engineering (PE) Review Course each spring for many years. It prepares engineers to take the PE Exam. We usually offer two PE tracks: Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Each three-hour session is delivered by subject experts spread over 12 sessions.


Subject experts have been selected from local industry, universities, and government. Organizations include University of Idaho-Boise College of Engineering, Boise State University College of Engineering, Idaho Board of Professional Engineers, Tikker Engineering, and Mountain Home AFB.
