The California Board for Professional Engineers is using the 2019 California Building Code (CBC 2019) and the ASCE 7-16 as the building code and seismic load standard for the CA seismic exam throughout 2023 testing quarters.    The switch to use the 2022 California Building Code will occur starting January 2024 and the current recorded webinars (Fall 2023) addressed those changes, for candidates taking their exam in 2024.  Please note the changes are not very significant when compared to the 2019 California Building Code.

Assorted Testimonials

Dr. Ahmed, I have no words to describe how Thankful I am to you and especially to your teaching skills. You take care and make sure all students are understanding the concept. I went into the exam pretty confident and exit knowing that I would certainly pass the exam. I felt like I got 80-85% questions correct. Two weeks ago, I found out that I had PASSED my Seismic exam. All credit goes to your excellent teaching skills and study material. Your 3 CBT exams are top notch and I think they were the game changer for me. Keep up the good work! I strongly recommend your class to anyone who is either familiar or not with seismic at all. Thank you again!!

Thank you very much for helping me to pass the seismic exam. Your materials, teaching approach and knowledge helped me to understand the subject in depth. The CBT simulation CD helped me to discover and overcome my weakness. What I appreciate the most is your dedication and encouragement to your students.

The textbook combined with the workshop problems gave me the confidence I needed. Thank you for sharing your seismic knowledge and the problem solving techniques. Your C3 technique helped me through the course and into the exam: Calm, Collected and Confident.  I would not have passed without your course and the motivation I got from you!
