Everything about requirements engineering in one training - the perfect preparation for the certification as "Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering - Foundation Level". In a compact form, you will learn the contents based on the current IREB e. V. syllabus in the areas of "eliciting requirements", "documenting", "testing" and "managing".

One of the goals of the three-day training is to provide you with all the knowledge you need to pass the Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering - Foundation Level exam. Prior to the training, we offer additional information material for your personal self-study.


  • Certification

    The optional certification for the Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering - Foundation Level is taken in a 75-minute multiple-choice exam on a tablet PC or as a conventional paper exam. The exam organized by SOPHIST takes place at the end of the last training day. In the case of in-house training, an alternative date for the certification can be arranged on request.

    It is possible to conduct the certification exam in different languages. For non-native speakers, it is possible to request a 15-minute extension of the exam time.

    You will receive the result of the multiple-choice exam and also the certificate directly from the certification company.
