Rigorous four-year education and training experience. Were typical working/studying hours. You cannot expedite the timeline to earn this certification with the Academy, the qualification is only earned after graduation.



Affordable, Hands-on training

CGA prepared me to take the FE. I studied electrical engineering and took classes for that major. I took the FE in Rhode Island and I believe the most beneficial thing I did was get very comfortable with the formula handbook, which you can use on the exam.
