NAATI (National Accreditation Authority for translators and Interpreters), a non-profit company jointly owned by the Commonwealth, State and Territory Governments, is the national standard and certifying authority for translators and interpreters in Australia. CCL Test is an evaluation of your language abilities to convey the meaning of a conversation between a native English speaker into LOTE speaker and vice versa. In this blog, we will provide you with some NAATI CCL Information; its aspects, what to expect during the test, how it is taken and so on.

NAATI tests and certifies the translators and interpreters. On passing this CCL Test taken by NAATI, you get 5 PR points which will further take you closer in getting Australian PR. Passing the CCL test is the verified confirmation of an individual’s community language skills in both English and other languages. When you pass the NAATI CCL Test you can claim for those CCL points.

You require at least 29 marks in each dialogue and an overall score of 63 out of 90 in order to pass the CCL Test. Scoring above 63 will add five points to your PR points and score between 55 to 62.5 will be marked as a marginal fail.
