Research has shown that preparatory courses can improve examination success rates. Taught by experienced instructors, OSPE’s most popular course explains the professional practice and legal concepts and issues for the engineering profession to help you prepare for the examination and increase your chances of success. OSPE’s NPPE Preparatory course is designed to help applicants for P.Eng. licensure prepare effectively for the National Professional Practice Exam (NPPE).
The Distance Learning Approach
The distance learning approach allows participants to study using various learning methods, thus, enabling participants to learn and absorb content using several interactive learning modes. Enrolling into a distance learning program not only allows participants to study at their own pace but this method adds flexibility to the learning program in terms of how participants will manage their study time.
It is essential that the participants be self motivated to complete this distance learning program. It is also beneficial for participants to complete some self-study before taking the course, including review of information on the PEO website and reading the recommended textbooks.
On Demand Access
This course is accompanied by on-demand access of NPPE prep learning videos. This allows you to review the material on your own time and learn at your own pace.
Your access to the on-demand videos and material will last from the start of the program to the next exam period (June 3-5, 2024).
