Description

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. Meanwhile IREB developed a certification program for Requirement Engineering (CPRE). The internationally recognized examinations are conducted by the International Software Quality Institute (iSQI).

The curriculum has three levels:

  • Foundation Certificate
  • Advanced Certificate
  • Expert Certificate

This course prepares you for the exam “Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering – Advanced Level, Elicitation and Consolidation" 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.

Target audience

Who should attend this training?

This training is suitable for you if you are involved in Requirements Engineering and Management wish to delve further in Elicitation and Consolidation of Requirements.

Roles of participants in their organization

This training is meant for:

  • Requirement 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 required

Candidates for the CPRE Advanced Level module examination must already have received the CPRE Foundation Level certificate.

Program

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 written exam, which forms the first part takes place at the end of the third day. The lecturer will be available during the exam for the students who do not participate in the examination, to answer their questions or to elaborate on the course content. The second part of the certification relates to the application of the learned material by means of a practical assignment. This is not part of the course and is conducted by an independent examiner.
