IREB CPRE Advanced Requirements Management
After attending a syllabus-based training course, you have received knowledge on requirements change management, versioning and traceability, which is prerequisite for taking ”IREB CPRE Advanced Requirements Management” examination.
The Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering stands for an elaborated three level certification concept developed by IREB. It addresses to individuals working in Business Analysis, Requirements Engineering and Testing, having highest demands on their work.
This module focus on appropriate methods and techniques to effectively deal with the management of requirements throughout the product development, including requirements attributes, prioritization, estimation, traceability and change management.
A good Requirements Management process will provide the following benefits to any organization:
- Lower costs – due to reduction in defects and rework which reduce costs massively.
- Time savings – due to better time efficiency and fewer unnecessary features.
- Higher customer satisfaction levels – due to better communication, no expectations gap and improved quality of the end product.
Requirements engineers and candidates, business analysts and candidates, developers, testers, quality specialists, project managers.
The prerequisite for admittance to a CPRE Advanced Level is IREB CPRE Foundation Certificate or BCS BA Requirements Engineering certificate.
