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 from science, research, industry and consulting, and it is today 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 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 successful. Today, more than 19,000 professionals have obtained the CPRE Foundation Level certificate in about 55 countries.
The next level of the certification model was tackled in 2011 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)
The Advanced Level module Requirements Management will be published in March 2015.
