About this course

In this workshop you will deepen your understanding of Function Point Analysis (FPA) concepts and techniques to measure the software size of Development and Maintenance Projects and Information Systems Applications.

You will be able to take the IFPUG CFPS certification exam with a solid theoretical knowledge of the methodology and with practical examples that will help you to better understand it.

The course will be based on three pillars: theory, practice and exam simulation. Throughout the course, attendees will carry out multiple didactic practical examples to understand the different steps of the methodology, which will be discussed and resolved.

In the penultimate session there will be a simulation of the certification exam with reduced duration (the real exam lasts 3 hours and the simulation will last 1:30 hours). In the last session, the results obtained in the exam will be reviewed and help and advice will be given on how to take the exam.


The workshop can be attended by anyone with knowledge or experience in software development or project management, but for a better use it is recommended to have knowledge and experience in the IFPUG methodology.
