The International Requirements Engineering Board, established in 2006 in Germany, has created the Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering. This certification has been developed in accordance with ISO standard ISO/IEC 17024 The Foundation level certification is currently available in English, French, German, Spanish, and Portuguese (Brasil), and will be available in Polish and Swedish in the near future. Over 12,000 people worldwide have received this prestigious certification. Several Advanced level certifications are currently under development and in use in Europe. The Advanced level Requirements Elicitation and Consolidation has been published in English at the end of 2012 and has already be achieved by several professionals outside Europe!
In the US and in the Americas more generally classroom and eLearning training programs for the Foundation level certification have been introduced and are currently available in English. Training Providers are working on mobile applications that will provide flash cards and sample exam questions to prepare for the Foundation level certification. These apps are expected to be available in late 2011 for Android and Apple platforms.
Everyone willing to support and promote requirements engineering effectiveness is invited - there is still a lot of work to do! For additional information about IREB and the CPRE, Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

Also a LinkedIn group called the “Americas Requirements Engineering Association” has been established to promote and encourage effective requirements engineering practices throughout North, Central, and South America – we invite participation by anyone involved in RE in the Americas, regardless of country of residence. A companion web site, www.A-RE-A.org has been established as well. This web site lists members by country, Association advisors and sponsors, and includes a bibliography (with a link to the Foundation level exam preparation book – Requirements Engineering Fundamentals by Klaus Pohl and Chris Rupp).
