The National Accreditation Board provides authoritative advice and guidance on the recognition in Dominica of qualifications obtained abroad and of qualifications awarded by transnational institutions operating in Dominica.


Accreditation can be described as both a status and a process. It is the status granted to an educational institution or programme that has been evaluated and found to meet or exceed stated criteria of educational quality.

Equivalence Assessment

The Labour Division determines the comparability of foreign qualifications awards to qualifications awarded nationally. A "Statement of Equivalence" provides authoritative advice on the comparability of recognised qualifications in foreign countries.


The law provides for qualifications awarded by institutions that are established outside of Dominica to be recognized by the NAB.

Quality Enhancement Support

Quality enhancement in tertiary education involves employing deliberate mechanisms to bring about continuous improvement in the effectiveness of the learning experience of students.
