Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering

Systematic and thorough requirements engineering is the factor that determines success in the development of software and other products today. Only if the actual needs and wishes of the stakeholders (customers, users, etc.) are known can products be developed that will be successful on the market.

Requirements therefore define the basis for all (software) products and enable both the planning and execution of the development and ultimately also the objective evaluation of the quality of a manufactured product.

Despite this essential importance of requirements, the discipline of Requirements Engineering is not yet established sufficiently well in business.

The International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB) therefore decided a few years ago to standardize fundamental training in Requirements Engineering. A lot of recognition has since been given to the IREB seminars aimed at obtaining the certificate “Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering” (CPRE Certificate).

What we offer

The aim of the seminar “Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering – Foundation Level” is to prepare the participants for the IREB examination to get the CPRE Certificate. The seminar is a three-day on-site training session and covers all contents of the curriculum of the CPRE Foundation Level.

Day 1 Fundamentals, System & System Context,
Requirements Elicitation and Documentation
Day 2 Documentation (cont.) and Modeling
Day 3 Requirements Evaluation and Requirements Management

In addition to the teaching content described in the standard, however, this seminar also provides an overview of other important aspects that should be considered in Requirements Engineering in order to successfully apply this discipline in practice.

This ensures that the participants will not only get generally applicable qualifications, but will also be taught additional methods and best practices based on Fraunhofer experiences.

Price per person: 1,290 EUR

This price includes all seminar materials, drinks, and lunch on the seminar days. additionally, travel and accommodation costs as well as possible CPRE certification fees must be paid by the participants to the respective third parties.
