Why Should I Write The National Technical Examination? – in relation to Skill Acquisition 

IBADANCITY Fashion College formerly known as DGV Fashion Academy. Is one of the colleges approved both by the Federal government body and state government body in charge of technical and vocational education in Nigeria. 

The college has been presenting students for the technical exams for over 2 years now. And till the last result, it has been super excellent. All thanks to good tutoring and preparation for the exam. 

What is the Technical Exams for?

NABTEB was established in August 1992 and was enacted through the promulgation of Decree 70 (Now Act 70) of 1993.  The acronym NABTEB means National Business And Technical Examinations Board.

Why was It established?

It was primarily established to take over the conduct of examinations conducted by the City and Guild (C&G) of London, Royal Society of Arts (RSA) of London and the technical and business examinations conducted by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) in the bid to domesticate the examinations and tailor them towards societal needs. 

The body is statutorily mandated to: – (a) Conduct specified examinations on behalf of or in collaboration with other examination bodies or agencies. -(b) Issue results and certificates. 

It is an in-school examination designed to certify final year students of Public and Private Technical as well as Commercial educational Institutions and holders of the C & G or RSA Certificates who wish to broaden their knowledge and be certified accordingly.

Why is it important?

What is the difference between the NBC and NTC and the NABTEB General Education Certificate?- (the one that involves other general subjects. )

The exam offered here, is a professional certificate earned through criterion referenced examination in specific trades and the fulfillment of certain conditions before certification in acquired skills for upward mobility in career development while the NABTEB General Education is mainly for admission to tertiary educational institutions like the SSCE of WAEC and NECO. 

It’s is to professionally ascertain that such candidate is skilled. Learning any skill and completing it without the technical certificate is like attending secondary school and not sitting for WAEC. It doesn’t meant such a person is not learned , but when the time to use the certificate arrives,such has no proof. And this may hinder careers advancement at some levels. 


What is the difference between NABTEB and WAEC/NECO Examinations?

WAEC/NECO examinations are mainly theoretical while The technical examinations are criterion referenced or places more emphasis on practicals and continuous assessment. It judges both theoretical knowledge and the practical skill level of each candidate. WAEC/NECO Certificates are basically for academic pursuit while NABTEB certificates are for both career development and educational advancement

Again , how does it make the candidate better than others who doesn’t have the certificate?

Unlike their counterparts whose prospects are restricted to further studies and unskilled labour, holders of NABTEB certificates have the following advantages:

I: Skill acquisition

II: Career development

III: Admission purposes

IV: Gainful employment

V: Economic self reliance and Wealth Creation 

Is the Technical qualification equivalent to the SSSCE of WAEC/NECO?
No, the technical certificate is higher than the SSCE of WAEC/NECO because it is a professional certificate with a higher entry point in the public service.

Can the NBC (National Business Certificate) be used for admission to Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education within and outside the country like the SSSCE of WAEC/NECO?

Yes, the NBC/NTC is globally recognized for admission to tertiary institutions within and outside the country while they (NBC/NTC) are rated higher for gainful employment opportunities outside the country.

The whole essence is to give skill acquisition the needed backup and relevance. 

You don’t just have to learn any skill, be certified and be sure it can take you places beyond where you are. 

It has both regular (modular) and its advanced diploma levels. And IBADANCITY Fashion College offers both. Both for the in-house students and external students. 

HOW DO I PARTAKE AS AN EXTERNAL STUDENTS?

The examinations is important, as seen in the above details. Therefore the college gives room for external candidates to register and equally upgrade their qualifications. Interested external students who need the certification, are tutored weeks before the exam. Those outside the city, gets handouts or e-handouts to prepare them for the exams. Only to come and sit for the exams at the center. External students mus have been through a sewing school to be a part of the exam. Although, practical tutorial comes up a week or 2 to the examination. 

The next examination comes up November/December this year and registration is on at the college now. Interested students can call or come by to register and make further enquiries. 


The results speak for the school. Don’t be left out. Your skill has more power than you know. Have the full backup and walk head held high.
