The RE@Agile Primer conveys the mutual benefits of requirements engineering and agile development. By taking the primer you learn about the beneficial implementation of RE methods and techniques in agile development, and how techniques from agile processes enhance RE practices.

The curriculum of the RE@Agile Primer is laid out for a 1-2 day training schedule, whereby self-study is possible too. Two options of taking an exam are offered, but only one includes a certification:

  • The proctored RE@Agile Primer exam consists of 22 multiple-choice questions with duration of 40 minutes.

  • In case that no certification is required, the IREB offers an online self-assessment, consisting of 16 questions within a 30 minute timeframe.

To take the online self-assessment, which is free of charge, you simply need to sign up at the IREB website here, and select it in the drop-down menu.
