"I found [this review course] invaluable in my preparation for the PE exam."
PE Exam Review Course attendee who passed the October 2015 exam

Professional engineer (PE) licensure is the preferred credential in the United States for engineers to bid on government contracts, be a principal of a firm, perform consulting services, and protect public health, safety, and welfare. It can also give you a competitive edge over non-licensed job candidates and a greater earning potential. Let TMS help you achieve PE licensing designation with the TMS Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Professional Engineer (PE) Licensing Exam Review Course.
