The NAATI will begin offering a new Credentialed Community Language (CCL) test in 2018.
Individuals who pass the NAATI CCL test are expected to be eligible to claim CCL points (also known as the “five bonus points”) as part of some points-based visa applications to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
Individuals who receive certification should be able to claim CCL points without having to take any further tests, according to NAATI.
The first set of CCL tests will be conducted by NAATI during the week of March 19-23, 2018.
Specific languages for this test round will be scheduled in early 2018. If a test spot is available, applicants will be notified by email.
NAATI plans to conduct at least three more CCL testing cycles in 2018. A CCL test pass does not imply that the person is qualified to work as an interpreter or translator.
If you have “credentialed community language qualifications,” you can get an extra 5 points on the points test for skilled migration.
You must be accredited by the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI) at the para-professional level (Level 2) or higher to receive community language points. NAATI offered accreditation exams in the following languages at the time of writing:
You can book a consultation on our website if you want us to check your possible eligibility for skilled migration or if you want us to help you with your application. After that, we’ll give you a thorough preliminary assessment of your possible eligibility for skilled migration and talk about the best method to proceed with your application with you.
Each state/territory capital city in Australia has a testing location.
Testing is accessible in Auckland, Christchurch, and Wellington, New Zealand.
