EITExperts LLC.is an American educational company founded in Fresno, California and now is headquartered in San Jose, California. The company is perhaps best known for training clients in order to pass the FE/EIT exam.
What is FE/EIT Exam?
The Fundamentals of Engineering Exam, formerly referred to as the Engineering in Training (EIT) Exam, is one of the two exams that engineers must pass in order to receive their license in Professional Engineering (PE) in the US. The exam is given two times a year in the US, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Korea, and Japan.
History and Growth
Dr. Jahanian founder of EITExperts has taught at several universities including LSU, Southern University Baton Rouge, Penn State and Temple University as well as California state university Fresno. While he was a professor at Penn State, he was given an assignment to discover why so many engineering students during their junior year change their majors to liberal arts and other disciplines. He had a shocking discovery; he learned that this was the fault of the professors. He published several articles based on this discovery including three in the most prestigious journals known nationally and internationally including Journal of Engineering Education, IEEE Transaction in Education, and European Journal of Education. He also won an international award based on his findings. Soon after he discovered that students come to the classroom with four different learning styles. Some like to learn by logic and theory, some by relating the subject matter to something familiar, some by experimentation, and others by relating to the application. Most engineering educators teach based on their own learning style which is logic and theory, and they miss 75% of their audience.
Later when Mr. Jahanian joined Temple University and Cal State Fresno, he was asked to teach the FE/EIT prep course. He noticed most of the students who came to the FE/EIT classes, worked five days a week and preferred to be with their family rather than in class in their weekends when EIT prep class was tauht. Furthermore, they had been out of school for more than 5 years or never took the required courses for the FE/EIT exam. To accommodate the interest of these students, he had to add two more elements in addition to the four learning styles when designing the course. He designed the lectures covering all four learning styles and adding the elements of fun and entertainment. Based on his 20 years of teaching experience, 10 years of teaching the FE/EIT prep course, his pedagogical research, publications and his international award, he created the EITExperts mainly to reach those who have been out of school for several years or had not taken some of the required the EIT exam courses. The company started with nine students in Fresno, California and after two years was able to reach students all over the US and Canada. Later EITExperts joined the Better Business Bureau and received a grade of A+ which has remained A+ ever since. EITExperts probably is the very first company that guarantees their students passage or 100% money back guaranteed.
