About the training

Requirements need to be managed efficiently and reliably over the entire lifecycle of a project and that of the resulting product. Such management begins with structuring requirements within a repository, continues with the use of attributes, setting the right priorities and version and change management, and in the end also involves tracking changes. In this course, you‘ll learn the methods and tools you can use to bring about efficient requirements management.

Certification- IREB® CPRE Advanced Level

The seminar is based on the IREB® syllabus and prepares you to take the exam to become an IREB® Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering. The certification exam is given as an e-exam, and you may choose the date on which you take it. To prepare you for the certification exam, our Web App is available with detailed learning and exam questions.
