I feel privileged to welcome you to the National Skill Testing Board (NSTB), the premier organization responsible for skill testing and certification system in Nepal. Since its inception in 1983, NSTB has been providing skill testing services in different skill sectors and levels. The skill test certification system is carried out for those individuals who have acquired vocational skills from formal, informal, and non-formal settings. The aim of NSTB is to certify competent skilled workforce focusing on recognition in the global market too. Furthermore, the Government of Nepal and the Government of Switzerland have signed a bilateral agreement to setup a Nepal Vocational Qualifications System (NVQS) in Nepal. Following the agreement, NSTB/NVQS has developed the National Vocational Qualifications Framework (NVQF) that is underway to endorsement process. Hence, NSTB is going to be transformed into National Vocational Qualifications Authority (NVQA) soon.

Finally, NSTB highly expects your cooperation and supports to make Nepal Vocational Qualifications System (NVQS) success. We believe in collaborative and committed endeavor in work with positive mindset and creative ideas. We always appreciate your valuable feedback, comments and suggestions.
