This is to inform everyone that, since 1st January 2018, NAATI has introduced a new test called Credentialed Community Language (CCL) Testing for the purpose of claiming extra 5 points in skilled migration.

Prior to that, an applicant was required to appear in para-professional OR professional level tests to claim those extra points. Also, it was possible to appear in the para-professional from 12 overseas locations.

With the new standard, the old tests are discontinued and now the only way to claim the extra points for Credential Community Language is to appear in the CCL examination. Furthermore, at present, CCL test is available only within Australia, no option for an overseas test.

So, from 1st January 2018:
  • You need to give CCL test to claim extra 5 points in skilled migration, no more para-professional test available
  • As of now, it is not possible to appear in CCL from an overseas location

Also, CCL test can be used only to claim Credential Community Language Points, it will not certify the applicant to work as an interpreter or translator. For that, you need to appear in the certification test.

It shouldn't be wrong if said that Australia is trying to close the doors now.

Since I speak both german and italian is that possible to claim 10 more extra points by doing NAATI's CCL exam in both of those two languages?
Thank you!
I would assume you can only claim the 5 points once.
You could prepare and calculate an EOI and find out (ie put in all your info, get to the end where it ccalculates points but dont submit it)

$800 for an fee for the test? Do you think its worth it? Or a little bit expensive?
It's definitely super expensive. Whether worth it or not? Depends on how desperate you are for additional 5 points.

Consider before posting:

  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
