CA Seismic Principles Exam

EET offers a Seismic Principles review class for the California Seismic Principles Exam.

Seismic Design Principles Using 2018 IBC (2019 CBC, AISC 7-16) version

The Seismic Design Principles, Using 2018 IBC (2019 CBC,AISC 7-16) version book includes lecture notes, multiple-choice questions with detailed solutions to prepare and pass the California Seismic Exam. The book covers the following as notes on the Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors, and Geologists site:

The California practice of seismic design, seismic analysis or seismic evaluation of new and existing civil engineering projects such as:

  • Buildings
  • Non-buildings structures
  • Non-structural components, equipment, and lifelines

This area of practice is structured into six primary content areas:

  1. Seismic Data and Seismic Design Criteria
  2. Seismic Characteristics of Engineered System
  3. Seismic Forces: Building Structures
  4. Seismic Forces: Non-Building Structures, Components, and Equipment
  5. Seismic Analysis ProceduresSeismic Detailing and Construction Quality Control
  6. Seismic Detailing and Construction Quality Control
