Self-study: Preparing for CPRE Advanced Level RE@Agile certification

The most important resource for candidates looking to prepare for a CPRE Advanced Level certification is the syllabus of the corresponding module.

The IREB CPRE Glossary (applicable to all levels) provides an overview of terms used throughout the syllabus, examination and literature.

Further helpful artefacts provided by IREB are the handbooks for the CPRE Advanced Levels. These are valuable resources for trainers, trainees, and practitioners alike, who are interested in getting a detailed insight to the specific Advanced Level. Although each handbook offers substantive information, it is not a replacement for a dedicated training course.

Finally, IREB kindly provides a practice exam for each Advanced Level in the same form, structure, and style of the actual examination, including solutions and correction aids to further advance your preparation.
