v The Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering (CPRE) Exam In 2007, the International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB e.V.) was founded. It is composed of independent experts who are accepted world- wide and come from an array of domains, including industry, consulting, research, and education. The members of the board have created a curric- ulum for the domain of requirements engineering and have developed a certificate, the Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering (CPRE) , that is based on the curriculum. The goal is to establish quality assured standardized instruction and continuing training in requirements engi- neering, thereby improving the practice of requirements engineering as a whole. In 2007, the IREB started out very successfully in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Since the curriculum has been made available in the Eng- lish language, the CPRE is now offered in more and more countries, such as, for example the United States, the Netherlands, India, and Israel. Four main actors are involved in the certification process: the IREB, recognized training providers, certifying bodies of the individual countries, and of course the participants in training courses and the examinees. Figure 1 1 illustrates the distribution of tasks for the Certi- fied Professional for Requirements Engineering (CPRE) certification model. The IREB creates the curriculum, develops the corresponding exami- nation questions, defines and governs the examination process, authorizes certifying bodies to administer examinations, and recognizes training pro- viders whose training courses conform to the curriculum for the Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering exam . In the individual countries, IREB-commissioned administer the examinations for the certificate.

vi The Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering (CPRE) Exam Figure 1-1 Task distribution in the CPRE certification model Formally, the IREB curriculum is similar to the curricula of other estab- lished instruction and continued training standards (e.g., ISTQB Certified Tester) and takes the pertinent standards of ISO and IEEE into considera- tion. The curriculum for the Foundation Level comprises the essential knowledge of requirements engineering, including requirements elicita- tion, documentation, validation, and management. The content the IREB certificate covers can be reviewed in the publicly available curriculum.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
