This short course will help you prepare for the CSE with video lectures, study reference materials, and practice exams similar to what you may find in the exam. We are developing additional materials over time, but you will find Planting, Irrigation, and Codes and Regulations modules complete and ready to go.

Even if you’re not preparing for the CSE yet, this course is an excellent overview of California legal and design issues.
