NPPE Exam Skills Preparation for IEGs

This preparation program is a unique course designed specifically to support international engineering graduates who are preparing to write PEO’s National Professional Practice Exam (NPPE). By spreading over 30 hours of instruction across several weeks, we elevate the learning in order to establish a solid understanding of legal and ethical regulations critical to the NPPE and to the engineering industry.

Passing the NPPE is a requirement for licensure but being able to apply these concepts in the industry is a specialization for life. Our goal? To provide a foundation for success on the NPPE and beyond.

Read what some of our past students have to say about the program

At the start of the program, I just wanted to pass the exam. However, I learned that to be a professional engineer, passing the exam is not enough; you have to understand how these lectures and classroom discussions arm you to succeed and use then use them in your daily practices to protect the public.
I passed the PPE Exam in my first attempt and am using essential key concepts I learned in the program in my profession now.

This bridge training program is not just a training program but a guiding light for new Canadians and anyone seeking to begin a career in Ontario’s Engineering sector.
The program was specifically useful to understand the engineering requirements to work in Ontario as the role of Engineers in Canada is different when compared to my previous experience. The program provided excellent study material and knowledge helping to crack the Professional Practice Examinations.
– JV, Program Graduate

The bridge training program helped to familiarize me with law and ethics exam questions and how to answer them. It also helped me a lot to manage my time during the exam. I believe that without this program, I would not have managed to pass the exam.
