IREB® Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering

About the certificate

The Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering (CPRE) is a personal certificate aimed at individuals working in Requirements Engineering, Business Analysis and Testing. It will expand your professional knowledge and help you to become more successful in your job.
The certification scheme is developed by the IREB, the contents are taught by independent training providers and the CPRE exam can be taken at approved certification bodies. The CPRE certificate has lifetime validity.

How to achieve the CPRE certificate?

The CPRE concept gives you maximum flexibility regarding your preparation. We recommend a classroom training course: alternatively you can prepare via online training or self-study.
The exam is usually taken subsequent to a classroom training course. It can also be taken in a test center - at a later time and independently of your choice of preparation.
