Based in Perth, the capital city of Western Australia, Babel International College (WA) was established in August 2012 as a professional training company. The main business of BIC was to provide training and coaching services to those who prepare to sit for a NAATI test. The courses BIC offered include English to Chinese Professional Translator test preparation course and English and Chinese Paraprofessional Interpreter test preparation course. BIC has provided these courses to more than 100 students over the past several years.
In 2016, BIC has successfully passed the auditing conducted by ASQA (Australian Skills and Qualification Authority) and is officially granted its RTO (41560) and CRICOS Provider code (03522E) which makes BIC a formal registered training organisation and is permitted to recruit international students from overseas.
By the end of 2016, BIC’s Diploma of Interpreting has been successfully approved by NAATI (National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters), which allows BIC to conduct both the training and NAATI accreditation assessment in house. Local and international students who complete and pass BIC’s course of Diploma of Interpreting will become a NAATI accredited interpreter.
