Prior to the introduction of the Certification system, NAATI approved courses are tertiary translation and interpreting qualifications (diploma-level or higher) conducted by individual VET and Higher Education institutions that were acknowledged by NAATI as teaching and assessing the skills and knowledge required by the profession.
Where a qualification at an educational institution held NAATI approval, students who complete the qualification and assessment at the standard required by NAATI may apply for NAATI accreditation without further testing by NAATI.
The NAATI approved courses system was discontinued in December 2017. If you are interested in gaining a translating or interpreting qualification, click here to learn about Endorsed Qualifications.
Graduates of NAATI approved courses who are recommended must apply directly to NAATI to be awarded their accreditation.
