From January 2018, NAATI (National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters) has introduced a new test as a part of its new certification system. And, this test is popularly known as the NAATI CCL Test.

 

What is NAATI CCL Test?

NAATI CCL (Credentialed Community Language) Test assesses your ability to convey the meaning of a conversation from English to Language Other Than English (LOTE) and vice versa. On clearing this test, you are awarded 5 extra points towards your Australia Permanent Residency visa application.

It is anticipated that the Skill Select Invitation Rounds will be running tough year by year with increasing competition and bars set by thousands of applicants. So, it would become essential to clear the NAATI CCL Test and get maximum points. Apart from your high band score in IELTS/PTE test you need extra points in order to make your application more considerable & receive an invitation from Department of Home Affairs (DHA). Only then, you will be eligible to apply for PR in Australia.

Before the CCL Assessment test was introduced, applicants appeared for para-professional or professional level tests to gain those 5 points. One could appear for para-professional test from 12 overseas locations but NAATI CCL Test could be taken only within Australia, earlier.

However, as in 2021 the test mode is changed to online. So aspirants overseas can sit for the test from their respective locations. Well that's a breather seen the circumstances. The test runs on Australia time, Canberra, so don't get confused with the that.
