The Calhoon MEBA Engineering School is no longer offering online courses.

Thank you for your interest, and we regret any inconvenience this may cause.

Students who are currently enrolled in either the Radar Observer Recertification Online or the Qualified Assessor Online courses will be able to finish their class and take their final exam at a Prometric Testing Center.



    • PC or Mac*
      * Internet Explorer 7 or higher, Javascript, and the ability to play WMV files are required for some components of the Visual Signaling (Flashing Llight) and the Radar Observer Renewal courses (created by Prometric for CMES) to run correctly.  All other course exercises and simulations will run properly on Mac and on PC in browsers other than Internet Explorer, and these components will provide sufficient review and practice to adequately prepare for the proficiency exam at the Prometric Testing Center.  However, Mac users and PC users who do not use Internet Explorer as the default browser, please be aware of these requirements if you wish to run the Prometric-created components that exactly mimic the format of the test that will be given at the Prometric Testing Center.
