Their highly skilled work accurately reading, rendering and revising engineering plans prevents cost overruns, errors and potentially defective products.

The new CEG Exam will quickly ascertain an individuals ability to read and comprehend technical drawings. The exam uses illustrations from engineering drawings and requires examinees to apply their analytical knowledge of drafting. This exam is in-depth and requires an individual to have a solid background in engineering graphics.
