If you do not already hold NAATI certification for another language or skill, you can submit a “Certification & Recognised Practising” application through your myNAATI portal. If you already hold a NAATI certification, please use the “Additional Certifications” application instead.
You cannot add additional documentation to your application through your myNAATI portal once you have submitted it. If you need to provide NAATI with additional information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and quote your application reference number.
There can be several reasons as to why your application can be rejected. The reason for rejection will be clearly outlined in your email along with further instruction.
You cannot select a test session until your application has been assessed by NAATI. Once you have received an email confirming that you are eligible for testing, you will be able to select a test date.
You will be able to book into any available test session through the “Manage My Tests” section of your myNAATI portal.
Once you have selected a test session, an invoice will be generated. You can either pay via credit card through the “My Bills” section of your myNAATI account, or through Electronic Funds Transfer using NAATI’s BSB and account details provided in your invoice.
If you cannot see any test dates in your myNAATI portal, this means that all scheduled sessions are currently full, or no test dates have yet been scheduled for your chosen language. We review our test schedule every month and try to meet demand wherever possible by increasing capacity or scheduling additional sessions. All eligible candidates who have not selected a test date will be notified via email once new test sessions have been scheduled.
Certification test results are generally issued within 8-10 weeks of the test being sat.
If you are eligible for a supplementary test, you will receive an email from NAATI along with your results with information about how to apply for a supplementary test.
NAATI has a number of measures in place to ensure that the result you receive reflects your performance on the day of the test. These include, but are not limited to, multiple independent examiners marking each test, bench-marking between examiner panels of different languages to ensure expected standard deviations of results are consistent, and bench-marking between different rounds of testing in each language. Each candidate also has the opportunity to appeal their result and have it marked by an additional examiner. You can apply for a review through your myNAATI portal. If the review results in a pass, the review fee will be refunded.
There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to apply for a review of your test results through your myNAATI portal including:
You can reject a test session through your myNAATI portal up until 5 weeks prior to the test date. Once you have rejected the session, you will be able to select a new test date through your portal. If you need to reschedule within 5 weeks of the test date, please email email@example.com to discuss your options.
