ATA Exam Sittings
The ATA Examination
Due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic and related government directives, most exam sittings have been canceled. Exam sittings will follow social distancing and other recommended practices. See links below for more information.
The ATA certification examination is administered in various cities in this country and abroad throughout the year. NETA itself has for years sponsored a sitting on the Sunday following our annual conference in April or May.
A completed registration form, along with payment of $500, must be received by ATA headquarters at least two weeks before the exam is administered. There is limited seating capacity. Late registrations may be accepted under conditions set forth by ATA.
Each spring, NETA's conference committee submits a preliminary program to the ATA, which informs us of the number of credits that ATA-certified translators who attend the annual NETA Conference are eligible to earn. Attendance certificates for this and other certifications will be available.
