Your credible resource for help with your civil & structural exams.


Next Technical Exam Sitting: May 11-15 December 7-11, 2020

Since the May 2020 exam has been cancelled, this is a predicted date for the December exams. Another exam period may be added in between, depending on the progress of the pandemic.

COVID-19 Update: Technical exams scheduled from May 11-15 have been cancelled at all locations in Canada and overseas due to COVID-19. You can see the original info on PEO website (who established the exams for all regions in Canada).
In the meantime, if you're able to channel all this excess energy from social distancing into studying, we would be happy to help you with this process. Since our technical exam help gives you access for 12 months, you'll be covered for the December sitting and any additional sittings added in between (if applicable). We'll also provide you with a free extension if the December sitting has to be cancelled too.  Contact us with any questions.

Your exam is fast approaching.  You might be working a job and have a family that needs your time.  The last thing you want to do is spend $1,000 on a course to re-learn this material.

If that sounds like you, our Civ-A5 (Str-B11) help is for you.
