On-Site BCS Requirements Engineering Training Course

We also offer a shorter 3-day BCS Requirements Engineering training course and exam, which is available for on-site delivery only. The 3 day training 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.

Intended Audience

The course is recommended for people who already have some experience in gathering and documenting requirements and would like to formalise their skills and gain the BCS certificate in Requirements Engineering.

The course is not recommeded for people with no previous experience. For new business analysts we recommend our Fundamentals of Business Analysis training course, which provides more indepth training covering the complete role of the business analyst and also includes the BCS certificate in Requirements Engineering.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course the delegate will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of linking requirements to the Business Case
  • Describe the roles and responsibilities of key stakeholders in the requirements engineering process
  • Explain the use of a range of requirements elicitation techniques and the relevance of the techniques to business situations
