Screening Test Preparation Courses

NAATI is offering training for people wishing to prepare for the intercultural and ethical competency screening tests.

You are required to sit these tests if you applied for NAATI certification based on a translation or interpreting qualification, which is not  NAATI Endorsed (or an Approved Course under the pre-2018 system). This could be an overseas qualification, or an Australian course that has not met the requirements of a NAATI Endorsed Qualification.

The preparation courses are not a replacement for tertiary qualifications and it is not compulsory to complete them. Completing these courses (on their own) will not be enough to satisfy the training requirements to access certification testing. They are available through our learning platform, Totara LMS.

Enrolments for Round one close at the end of this week (28 May 2018).

The courses are delivered over a six-week learning period. You must complete all the activities before the learning period closes.

You can choose to do one or both courses at the same time. Each course should take about 10 – 15 hours to complete and you must complete each one within the six-week period from the start date.

Cost

Each six week period is called a round. The cost of accessing the learning platform is $308 for each round. That means that if you complete both courses in one round, the total cost is $308.  If you need longer, you will have to enrol in another round. 

Rounds

The Totara LMS rounds for 2018 are as follows:

Enrolments for each course round will close 14 days after each course starts. If you  enrol after a course has started, you will not receive extra time to complete it.

What will be required to complete each course?

Each course is self-directed with some oversight by a course instructor. In order to complete the course, you need to:  

  1. Go through the core content of each unit (known as a 'Module')
  2. Complete the compulsory assessment and activity tasks
  3. Pass the end of course practice exam to gain a certificate of course completion.
