Interested in gaining NAATI accreditation as a community interpreter? Come along to an information session about a training course which will prepare students to take the NAATI para-professional interpreter test.
- Saturday 24 October 2015 West Wing Meeting Room, 3pm-5pm or
- Tuesday 27 October 2015 , Function Room, 6pm-8pm
Address of both the above: 2nd Floor, Theo Notaras Multicultural Centre, Civic
The course will be held at CIT, Reid Campus and is planned to start in February 2016 with a preparatory session in November 2015.
Course fees $150. These fees are greatly subsidised thanks to funding provided by the ACT Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA).They cover the cost of text book and voice recorder for each participant and NAATI practice kits for each language.
Participants who successfully complete the course will be eligible for OMA scholarships to apply for and sit the NAATI paraprofessional test. Once accredited, course graduates will be required to register with the OMA so that their services can be called on by ACT government departments.
LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS: As well as proficiency in your own dialect, there will be a requirement to have a good level of proficiency in the standard form of your language. You will also need to have a certain minimum level of proficiency in English, equivalent to Level 6 in the IELTS General Training scale (i.e. a competent user of English).
The information session will be run by CIT Solutions and the Canberra Multicultural Community Forum (CMCF), and will cover course aims, format, costs, and how to apply for a place.
