The National Board for Professional and Technician Examinations (NABPTEX) is one of three bodies with the mandate to regulate the tertiary education sector. Reconstituted in 2004, eleven years after its inauguration, NABPTEX is fully aware of the challenges and opportunities presented by current trends in Ghana’s tertiary education sector, as well as the need to position itself to enhance its value and relevance. NABPTEX has chosen to undertake a critical self-evaluation as well as examination of the operating environment.

Our Core Mandate

Formulate & Administer Schemes of Exams

NABPTEX is to formulate and administer schemes of examinations and standards for skill and syllabus competencies for non-university tertiary institutions with accreditation by the National Accreditation Board.


The work of NABPTEX is executed by two main committees namely, Administration and Finance Committee (concerns with general policy issues) and the Examinations Committees (which is responsible for the exams process).


NABPTEX ensures adequate consultations with the appropriate industries and professional bodies to undertake regular review of syllabuses tailored to suit the economic development needs of the country.


NABPTEX ensures that final certificates and diplomas are awarded on merits so that the right calibre of students pass out of the non-university tertiary institutions, professional bodies and private institutions.
