Surrey Regional Group - CM Examination Preparation Course

Surrey Regional Group is holding our successful series of evening classes at the University of Surrey for candidates sitting the CM Examination.

The course will be of immediate benefit to those sitting the examination in the summer 2019 and to those intending to take the examination in future years.

The course will also be of assistance to candidates taking the AM examinations.

With the exception of the first evening, the course will run in two separate groups, one for bridge engineers and one for building structures engineers.

A local Engineer’s office will be made available to candidate’s wishing to attempt a seven-hour question on a Saturday.

Typical Course Programme:

Evening 1:
Past-years’ successful candidates will discuss how they prepared for the exam and will explain general preparation techniques.
