NAATI has certification provision for Certified Translator, Certified Interpreter, and Certified Provisional Interpreter, an aspirant international student may choose one from the list but CCL is newly introduced test focused on migration points. Passing CCL test doesn’t allow individuals to practice or work as translator or interpreter. NAATI clearly mentions that ‘individual who has passed a CCL test is not certified to work as an interpreter or translator.’ But still, NAATI made students easy to get 5 extra points for their CCL skills go for NAATI accreditation by testing which was available for Advanced Translator, Professional Translator, Paraprofessional Translator, Professional Interpreter, and Paraprofessional Interpreter; among them, Paraprofessional Interpreter was popular among Nepalese students.

In CCL test NAATI has introduced new test format in which test taker is required to transfer the meaning of what is said by each speaker into the other language (i.e. English into Nepali and Nepali into English). Two dialogues are given in the test, each approximately with 300 words, approximately half in English and half in Nepali. The dialogues are divided into segments that do not exceed 35 words each.
