This intensive three-day course covers the syllabus and exam for the BCS certificate in Requirements Engineering. The certificate is concerned with one of the major areas of business analysis work, producing a well-organised and clearly-defined set of requirements.
The syllabus is structured around a five part framework for Requirements Engineering. The five elements of the framework are Requirements Elicitation, Requirements Analysis, Requirements Validation, Requirements Documentation and Requirements Management.
This course will help you develop the skills needed to work with requirements stakeholders to ensure that requirements satisfy various perspectives and that conflicts are negotiated to a position of consensus.
Requirements Engineering is one of the core modules for those wanting to achieve their BCS Diploma in Business Analysis. To obtain the full Diploma candidates must also obtain the other core module of Business Analysis Practice, a Knowledge-based specialism module and a Practitioner specialism module. Candidates must also take a one hour oral exam directly with the BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, following successful completion of the four modular certificates.
This course is not recommended for people with no previous experience. If you are a new business analyst or you would like to become a business analyst we recommend our Fundamentals of Business Analysis training course, which provides more in-depth training covering the complete role of the business analyst.
