Geotechnical

The Geotechnical Depth Review Class covers all the topics listed in the NCEES Geotechnical Depth Exam Specifications. Amongst the topics covered in this class are: Site Characterization which includes subsurface exploration analysis, Drilling and Sampling techniques, Soil Classification, Soil Mechanics Testing and Analysis, Earth Structures and Earth Retaining Structures, Shallow Foundations and Deep Foundations, and Earthquake Engineering. The class has a total of 38 hours of lecture and problems solving. A 4-hour simulation exam, which includes 40 problems, is offered at the end of the review class to provide students an opportunity to experience the pressure of the real exam.

  • Total 42 hours of professional instructions.
  • Fees include binder and simulated exam.
  • Time on the schedule is shown in Pacific Standard Time. 
  • The live Webinar uses Adobe Connect software. You only need internet connection and browser to join the session. Webinar sessions are very interactive. Instructor uses powerpoint slides simulating effective classroom setting.
  • The live webinar sessions are recorded for you. They are available for you until the exam date.
  • This Geotechnical live webinar class is subject to minimum 15 students requirement.
