REQB® ACCREDITATION OF TRAINING PROGRAMS
Many training programs and seminars do not keep the promises made in catalogs and promotional material. However, especially for courses that claim to prepare participants for certification, this should be absolutely mandatory. Only programs that cover the defined learning objectives in the course will yield effective preparatory results.
The solution: The use of accredited course materials. In order to be accredited, the training material has to pass a quality check based on defined guidelines.
Depending on the plan, the existing material is checked for compliance with the respective syllabus and for its congruence with applicable didactic and qualitative standards. Consequently, accreditation sets quality standards for training programs customers can trust. The standardization process that goes hand in hand with the accreditation also makes it possible to prepare for exams with a specific focus on the objectives. In order to achieve this, experts in the pertinent subject have reviewed the material to ensure that it covers the defined learning objectives.
Obtaining accreditation for a training program also offers numerous benefits for training facilitators. Firstly, by obtaining an accreditation, the provider proves that the course material offered does meet the high quality standards of the applicable plan. This fact has been clearly established as a result of the external audit of the material. Secondly, an accreditation allows the provider to show customers that the training programs offer certification specific preparation.
This is a highly attractive selling point for any training program, especially when paired with the prominent listing of the business as an accredited training service, which is an opportunity offered by many plans.
Providers of a REQB Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering Course must be accredited by the REQB. Their experts review the training provider's documentation for accuracy. An accredited course is regarded as conforming to the related syllabus and its learning objectives. At the end of such a course, an officially Certified Professional Requirements Engineering examination may be carried out by an independent certification institute.
Accredited training providers can be identified by the official REQB Accredited Training Provider logo.
