IREB® Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering - Advanced Level (Modeling)

Categories Systems Engineering, Requirements & Architecture

General Information
3 Days

Are you looking for an advanced level seminar that will add to your basic knowledge gained in the “IREB® Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering - Foundation Level" for Modeling Requirements seminar

Through many practical exercises this training, will give you greater familiarity with the efficient modeling of information structures, functions, behaviors and scenarios.

Upon conclusion of the seminar you can take the exam to qualify as an “IREB® Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering – Advanced Level, Requirements Modeling".

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

Target audience

Requirements managers, business analysts, system and software analysts (systems engineers), project managers

  • Basic foundations of requirements engineering
  • A prerequisite for taking the exam is either the certificate "IREB® Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering – Foundation Level" or the certificate “Requirements Engineering" of the British Computer Society (BCS)
  • Additional exam fees charged when applicable.
  • If the exam is passed, the certificate will be issued by the independent certifier International Software Quality Institute (iSQI).
  • The optional exam to “IREB® Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering – Advanced Level (Modeling)" consists of two steps:
  • CPRE Advanced Level (Modeling) – Practitioner
    • A written examination which consists of multiple-choice questions on the last training day or online after individual agreement with the certifier.
  • CPRE Advanced Level (Modeling) – Specialist

    • Prerequisite is the successful completion of the CPRE Advanced Level (Modeling) – Practitioner written exam. In addition, a supplementary paper on given topics has to be developed. The paper must be written independently and according to generally accepted scientific criteria, using only the literature and resources specified by the candidate. Approximately 16 hours are to be planned for the processing of the written homework.
  • Further information regarding the exam can be found in the IREB-Examination regulation for the CPRE-AL-Practitioner and CPRE-AL-Specialist.
