One Extraordinary Idea. Ten Extraordinary Years. The Best is Yet to Come…
Achieving the Extraordinary for Ten Years
A Passion to Help People Pass the PE Exam
Dr. Tom’s Classroom began its quest to help engineers pass the PE Exam in 2009 when Dr. Thomas H. Brown, PE (a man with an exciting vision of teaching an online Mechanical PE Exam review) met a team (Jimm Barnes, Kim DeCoste and Neil Howell) who had a great way to get courses online. From the very beginning, we were guided by Dr. Tom’s passion for helping people pass the PE Exam. We understand the life-altering effect that becoming a PE can have for our participants, and we are committed to doing our very best to help them achieve that goal.
Improving Our Courses with the Dr. Tom Method
The first year or two, we only had a handful of participants in our courses, but they liked our courses and gave us invaluable feedback that helped us refine and improve the courses and develop our tried and true “Dr. Tom Method.” We believe that it’s not enough to just teach the engineering topics and problem solutions, so our method provides you with a plan and real strategies that you can apply throughout your review and on the exam. With the success of that method, the number of folks taking DTC courses grew each year until we were helping hundreds of mechanical engineers pass the PE Exam.
DTC Expands with Civil PE Exam Reviews
In 2016, we decided to expand our course offerings, applying the Dr. Tom Method to the Civil PE Exams. Creating the courses for all five Civil discipline was a huge undertaking, but we were fortunate to assemble an amazing team of instructors for the course (Dr. Daniel Findley, PE, Dr. Beth Sciaudone, PE, Mike Batten, PE, Jason Savage, PE, and Shannon Warchol, PE), each with expertise in their discipline and the same passion for teaching as Dr. Tom. Since the launch of our Civil PE Exam reviews in 2017, we have helped hundreds of civil engineers pass the PE Exam.

DTC Meets the Challenge of CBT Exams
The latest challenge we’ve faced is the conversion of the PE Exams from the pencil-and-paper format to Computer-Based-Testing. This new format, which allows no outside references during the exam, presents a whole new exam experience with new challenges. With the Mechanical PE Exams converting in 2020, we have created all new courses with an all new Dr. Tom Method designed specifically for the CBT format exam. We’ll be doing the same when the Civil Exam converts in 2023.
It has been an extraordinary 10 years, and we are grateful to our participants for allowing us to be part of their journeys to achieve the extraordinary by becoming PEs. Their success is what keeps us going, and we truly appreciate the many kind words and thanks that we have received from our participants. When we were looking for a way to celebrate 10 years of Dr. Tom’s Classroom, we decided the best way would be to help more people achieve that goal by offering lower prices and longer access to our course.
It’s our way of saying thank you for choosing us to help you prepare for the exam!
