An internationally recognized standard in Requirements Engineering and Management
The International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB) is an international nonprofit organization that focuses on the further professionalization of the Requirements discipline.
Within IREB requirements engineering experts like Chris Rupp and Suzanne Robertson are member of the international board. IREB has developed a certification program for Requirements Engineering (CPRE). The internationally recognized examinations are conducted by the International Software Quality Institute (iSQI).
The curriculum has three levels:
- Foundation Level
- Advanced Level
- Practitioner Certificate
- Specialist Certificate
- Expert Level
This course prepares you for the exam “Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering – Advanced Level, Elicitation” and meets the requirements as set down by IREB. You will learn international standards, methods and techniques in the field of Requirements Elicitation and Consolidation.
Who should attend this training?
This training is suitable for you if you are involved in Requirements Engineering and Management and wish to delve further in Elicitation and Consolidation of Requirements.
Roles of participants in their organization
This training is meant for:
- Requirements Engineers, Business Analysts, Information Analysts and Functional Designers who want to obtain the internationally recognized IREB “Certificated Professional for Requirements Engineering – Advanced Level, Elicitation and Consolidation” certification as part of their career
- Architects, Developers, Designers and Users involved in specifying information systems or software products
- Quality Officers and Project Managers who want to explore Requirement Engineering and Management
Prior knowledge or training
Candidates for the CPRE Advanced Level module examination must already have received the CPRE Foundation Level certificate.
Structure of this training
In this three-day training you will learn about Requirements Engineering from both theoretical and practical perspective. Exercises and forming opinion are an important part in this course. During the course you will practice test exams. It is recommended to prepare for the exam by studying the curriculum in the evenings.
The certification is made up of two parts and is optional.
- The practioner exam: this is a muliple choice exam that will take 75 minutes. In case the exam cannot be taken in your native language you can, upon request, obtain an extension of 15 minutes
