CCL, a new catchy and exciting term introduced by National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI) in the New Year 2018. With some changes in the examination process, NAATI introduced new language test Credentialed Community Language (CCL), which is commonly abbrev as NAATI CCL. As per the information provided the test will provide student extra 5 points in their migration process.
NAATI CCL test is anticipated, as a big help to those students whose EOI is stuck by 5 points, stretching the waiting period for an invitation for Australian Permanent Residency. Once the student passed the NAATI CCL test he or she would be awarded 5 points for Community Language skill. You’ve probably heard that the ‘five bonus points’ from your migration agent or friends. At this time it’s the big news for accounting graduates who scored 79+ in PTE, completed the professional year and still waiting for an invitation.
NAATI information booklet reads ‘’as part of certain points-based visa applications made to the Department of Home Affairs, individuals who pass the NAATI Credentialed Community Language Test can claim Credentialed Community Language (CCL) points (sometimes referred to as the ‘five bonus points’).’’

The test fee is 800 Australian dollars and you can expect your result within 8-10 weeks from the test day.
The NAATI CCL test looks a simplified version of Paraprofessional Interpreter, test taker only required to transfer the meaning of what speaker said. Two dialogues are given in the test, each approximately with 300 words, approximately half in English and another half in Language other than English (LOTE). The dialogues are divided into segments that do not exceed 35 words each. The dialogues are based on a conversation between an English native speaker and a speaker of your choice of language (LOTE).
Though the NAATI CCL test will give you 5 migration points for Australian Permanent Residency, you can not practice as an interpreter. Passing CCL test doesn’t allow individuals to practice or work as translator or interpreter. Still, you are not certified to work as an interpreter or translator.
