If you are looking forward to migrating to Australia, you are eligible to claim 5 points under Credentialed Community Language (CCL) upon successful accreditation from NAATI. NAATI stands for National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters. They conduct Credentialed Community Language (CCL) Test that gives 5 points to international students and other eligible applicants for their point-based GSM Visa. CCL Exam determines an applicant’s ability to interpret the conversation between two speakers speaking different languages.
In this test, you are required to interpret two dialogues that are conveyed to you via a recorded audio. These dialogues include alternating segments of a conversation between an English speaker and a speaker speaking Language Other Than English (LOTE). You are required to infer the segments from English to LOTE and vice versa. South Indian languages like Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam are recognized by NAATI to be eligible to claim 5 extra PR Points.
You need an overall score of 63 marks or more in the CCL Assessment Test with a minimum of 29 out of 45 marks in each dialogue in order to achieve 5 points. Once you pass NAATI test, you will receive an official communication from the exam body informing you that you are not entitled to claim 5 points for your PR. The NAATI test result is valid for 3 years for all VISA related submissions.
