The IREB e.V.
The International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB) e.V. has joined forces with the vision to create an international and professional basis for RE, in order to give this discipline the importance and the orientation that corresponds to its added value for the industry.
The IREB e.V. is the developer and the holder of the CPRE (Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering) certification scheme. The board was created in 2006 by leading RE representatives, who come from science, research, industry and consulting. In the meantime it has become a worldwide renowned body of experts for the individual certification of professionals in requirements engineering.
Though the CPRE certification scheme originated in Europe, it is now also supported by committed members in many countries ranging from North and South America to Europe and Asia.
In their effort to establish the CPRE certification scheme internationally, IREB is highly (extremely) successful. Today, more than 11,000 people have obtained the CPRE Foundation Level certificate in over 40 countries. In 2011 the next level of certification model was tackled with the publication of the first Advanced Level modules:
- Requirements Elicitation & Consolidation (Syllabus and examinations are available in German and English)
- Requirements Modeling (Syllabus and examinations are available in German, English will be released soon)
With the Requirements Management, the third Advanced Level module will be published later this year.
