NPTE® Workshop for Educators

We will share information soon on upcoming workshops.


The workshop will include presentations from FSBPT staff and trainers on item writing, test construction, preparing students for the NPTE, registering for and taking the NPTE, and other relevant topics. There will also be time for one-on-one assistance from trainers and staff.


To get a feel for the workshop, view the agenda from the 2023 in-person workshop.
