IREB® CPRE Advanced Level - Requirements Management

What can you expect from this course?

You enable yourself to develop and supervise the handling of requirements either for specific development projects or in general and thus in the long term exploit the full benefits of requirements engineering.

Goals of participating in IREB® CPRE Advanced Level - Requirements Management

As a requirements manager, you know how to define and maintain role-based procedures with requirements in your work area and develop a requirements information model with all its features and traceability aspects.

Your options to take the certification exam

You can book the training with or without an exam. During the Corona pandemic, the IREB exams are conducted under the supervision of our certification partner Certible ONLINE. You can find more information about the IREB online exam HERE on the Certible page.

A few days before the training, we will send you a voucher code with which you can register on the Certible site and choose a desired date for the online exam. Since according to IREB no study material may be used during the exam, the participants are observed by one of the Certible examiners via web cam. Participants will find out immediately after completing the exam whether they have passed.

Duration of the exam: 75 minutes.

For the Advanced Level, in addition to the exam a term paper has to be submitted.
