Course Description: The goal of this three-day course is to assist each attendee in formulating a preparation strategy for obtaining a passing grade in the FPE P.E. Exam or to self-assess readiness to attempt the exam. It also serves as a good general overview of fire protection engineering principles.
Course scope includes an overview of the P.E. exam process, a review of each of the five broad fire protection topics comprising the technical scope of the exam, and discussion of resource materials such as handbooks and the NFPA fire codes. The course will be a sample test workshop, including determining the solution to a sample problem from each of the subject areas.
It is important that the participant understand that completing this course is not sufficient preparation for the exam on its own. The participant should be prepared to commit to 200-300 hours of self-study. In three days the course will present sample material from topics that comprise an undergraduate fire protection engineering program and therefore represents only a sampling of possible exam material.
