Requirements for Confirmation:

Weddings, Holy Unions, and Vow Renewals

Confirmation is the strengthening of the new life of Baptism.   

As such it brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace.  St Ambrose, speaking to the newly confirmed explains:  

 "Recall then that you have received the spiritual seal, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of right judgment and courage, the spirit of knowledge and reverence, the spirit of holy fear in God's presence. Guard what you have received. God the Father has marked you with his sign; Christ the Lord has confirmed you and has placed his pledge, the Spirit, in your hearts" 

(St. Ambrose, De myst. 7, 42: PL 16, 402-403).
