BCS Certificate in Requirements Engineering - RE-2

This intensive three-day course develops the skills needed to work with requirements stakeholders to ensure that requirements satisfy various perspectives and that conflicts are negotiated to a position of consensus.

Delegates will learn how to work with stakeholders and other requirements actors to ensure the requirements are complete, unambiguous, realistic and testable.

Course Information

There are no specific pre-requisites for this course. This course is for those wishing to acquire the skill set required for establishing system requirements and those wishing to attain the BCS Business Systems Development Certificate in Requirements Engineering.

Please note the exam fee is not included in the course fee. Delegates wishing to undertake the exam should also book on course code REEX-2.

Those delegates taking the BCS certificate will need to spend 60-90 minutes each evening on revision and example examination questions. If you are taking and booking the BCS exam on code REEX-2 you must bring photographic identification with you (passport, driving license or student card), as it is a BCS requirement to produce it for the invigilator prior to the exam. Failure to produce a valid form of photographic identification will result in a candidate not being able to sit the exam.

The BCS also allows additional time for candidates who have a disability or whose business language is not English. Candidates can request this additional time in line with the BCS reasonable adjustments policy.

If you believe you qualify for this, please contact our exam administration team (01793 608815) as early as possible. At least three weeks' notice will be required for processing this request and delegates failing to advise Connect 2 Courses and provide proof if requested by the BCS, may not be allowed the additional support offered via this BCS policy

For any questions about what form of identification is acceptable, or for more information about the BCS reasonable adjustments policy, please contact your Account Manager or the Connect2Courses Examination Administration team on 44 (0)1793 608815

Following your exam you will be sent an email from BCS asking you to register for your exam. Once you have registered and your exam results become available then you will be able to log back into your account and view your results.
