In this seminar you will learn how to lay the foundation for a successful project by dealing with requirements systematically. You will acquire techniques, methods and tools to elicit, document, validate and manage requirements efficiently.

Upon completion of the seminar, you will be able to apply requirements engineering successfully in your own projects. You can take the exam to qualify as an "IREB® Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering – Foundation Level".

Please note that further preparation after the conclusion of each seminar day is recommended to succeed in passing the exam.
