The issue is there are a lot of bad EIT/FE courses that do not prepare you for the actual exam. I paid for one of those bad courses and had to pay for another one on my own. So I am spreading the word about your course so my co-workers do not make the same mistake I did. By the way, I passed the EIT and preparing
to take the PE in
