In order to enable CPRE examinations without going somewhere, IREB has permitted remote exams for a limited period until December 31, 2020. Depending on how the situation with the Corona virus evolves this period might be extended.
If dedicated countries continue to impose curfews, IREB allows remote proctored exams in these countries until one month after the end of the curfew.
In connection with an online or virtual training, successful certification is thus possible even during the current curfews!
Talk to your training partners or certification body! You will find them via the links below!
IREB monitors the quality of the remote proctored exams and will decide afterwards whether they can be continued in the future or not.
We are happy to announce that IREB will launch the updated CPRE Foundation Level 3.0 in English and German on October 1, 2020!
From October 1, 2020 until March 31, 2021 exams in English and German for the CPRE Foundation Level certificate can be taken both, based on syllabus version 2.2 and syllabus version 3.0. Candidates may choose. From April 1, 2021 on, exams in English and German for the CPRE Foundation Level certificate can only be taken based on syllabus version 3.0!
As of now exams for the CPRE Foundation Level certificate in all other available languages are still conducted based on syllabus version 2.2. These exams will be switched to syllabus version 3.0 as soon as the translations are available. Of course, there will be a grace period of 6 months for each language where candidates can choose to take the CPRE Foundation Level exam based on syllabus version 2.2 or 3.0. This grace period will be defined for each language individually, depending on the date when the exams in that particular language are available.
We are still working on a handbook for the Foundation Level, similar to the handbooks for the CPRE Advanced Level modules. This handbook will be provided for free download on the IREB website. We hope to be able to provide it in October 2020.
Together with the CPRE Foundation Level syllabus 3.0 we will also publish a new version of the CPRE Glossary, which is aligned with the new syllabus version and as well to the ISTQB glossary.
