This course meets the pre-requisite training requirements set by NAATI for anyone wishing to sit for Interpreter Certification tests.
From January 2018, NAATI (National Accredidation Authority for Translators and Interpreters) will implement a new Certification system. In addition to testing changes, NAATI will require that applicants complete a training component before applying for testing. This course will meet the training requirement, prepare candidates for the test and meet the English proficiency requirements.
Duration: 10 weeks
Pre-requisites: Applicants will be required to meet English proficiency requirements before enrolment by undertaking a pre course language activity. This is necessary to ensure students have the required level of English to complete the course and because NAATI has set an English proficiency level for all test candidates.
