In practice, requirements engineering tasks have become increasingly complex. In order to ensure a high level of knowledge and competency among requirements engineers, the International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB) developed a standardized qualification called the Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering (CPRE). The certification defines the practical skills of a requirements engineer on various training levels.
This book is designed for self-study and covers the curriculum for the Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering Foundation Level exam as defined by the IREB.
The mission of the International Requirements Engineering Board is to contribute to the standardization of further education in the fields of business analysis and requirements engineering by providing syllabi and examinations, thereby achieving a general improvement of applied requirements engineering.
The IRE Board is comprised of a balanced mix of independent, internationally recognized experts in the fields of economy, consulting, research, and science. The IREB is a non-profit corporation.
