Technical Workshop: LARE Prep—Section E (Grading, Drainage, Stormwater Management)
This workshop provides hands-on experience with the national licensing exam. After an overview of exam content and procedures, the session features two components: solving vignette problems and a primer on grading techniques. Participants will solve two vignettes (one as pre-session homework; one in the session itself). Analysis and discussion of these will help explain critical issues relating to performance vignettes and their successful completion. The goal of the workshop is that you leave with greater insight into what faces you and with new-found confidence in your ability to prepare for and pass Section E.
