Business Analysis e-learning Courses

IREB Requirements Engineering Certificate

LearnTesting now offers a course that prepares students for the IREB and IIBA certification exams.

Requirements engineering is a discipline that should be viewed as integrated with testing. In fact, early stage testing activities are an extension of requirements engineering, facilitating the build of the right product. Learntesting offers an online course leading to the Information Requirements Engineering Board (IREB) certificate.

This course explores not just why the requirements matter, but how to gather the right requirements, document them effectively and ensure that they are properly implemented. It explores the roles of the requirements engineer and business analyst both in ferreting out the requirements and interacting with the project team to ensure the customer gets the product they want and need.
