Slay the PE Thermal & Fluids Systems Course
We have built a course for the Thermal and Fluid Systems Exam centered on our Practice Problems Book and Practice Exam. Additionally, we have written a Supplementary Problems book that is only available through the live course.
You are a busy professional balancing your work life with life at home with family and/or friends. Most people really do not need to sit through hours of lectures a week. We have found that most engineers just need a quick review of the theory and equations and then jump into problem solving. Our class meetings consist of a brief discussion of the theories and relevant equations, laser-focused on what's important for the test. This is then followed by solving numerous examples not available anywhere else. We leave out the fluff and boring lectures.
In class we solve easy problems at first to build confidence and to recall long-forgotten concepts and techniques, followed by a gradual progression towards exam-level difficult problems. If you are in the live class, you are then assigned a multitude of problems to work at your own pace during the week until the next meeting. This ensures you are making progress and assimilating the fundamentals.

How it works:
For the On-Demand Course:
Q: Do I need internet access to view the materials? I can get a lot of work done while commuting on a train or when flying.
A. Our books and the answers to our Practice Exam can be locally stored in up to two devices (computer, tablet, phone, etc) and are accessible offline. These documents are encrypted PDFs only viewable with the free Javelin reader, available for download from Drumlin Security or from the App Store or Play Store for mobile devices. The class recordings are not downloadable and do require internet access.
Q: I will use my work computer for the course and they do not let me install software on it. Your files require this Javelin PDF reader. Can I get the files in regular, non-encrypted PDF?
A. Restricting software in company machines is quite common (it’s the rule rather than the exception) and most of our customers go through this. However, your company's IT people will typically install anything you need in your machine if you make a case for it when you submit a ticket. Please tell them you need this software for your professional development and send them the Javelin download link: https://www.drumlinsecurity.com/javelindownloads.php. Very rarely such requests are denied, and if your employer is encouraging you to get a PE license and reimbursing your costs to prep, you have an even stronger case.
Q: I had previously bought access to your Practice Problems book and/or the answers to the Practice Exam. Do I still have to pay the full course fee?
A. Of course not! We will issue a personalized coupon code you can use when paying for the course. The coupon code will discount whatever you paid for any of our products, no matter how long ago it was.
Q: If I start the On-Demand course, could I upgrade to Live?
A. Yes! Only pay the difference and you can join the Live course the next time it occurs (January, May, or August).
Q: How do I get help if I become stuck and don't understand the solution to any problem?
A. Email us any questions or post your question on our Slack channel and you will get an answer in less than 24 hours.
