The New York Circle of Translators has always taken pride in supporting our colleagues to help them grow by administering the ATA Certification Exams in New York. Unfortunately, since the beginning of the pandemic, it has been impossible to organize exam sessions.
While the ATA has given the green light to its Chapters to offer on-site exams, we in the New York area will still be unable to administer exams for the remainder of 2021 due to a lack of suitable and available sites at the moment.
However, the ATA has developed online exams, which are currently available around the country. You can take them from the comfort of your home. The ATA has partnered with an independent organization to provide remote proctoring. More information is available here.
In the meantime, NYCT will continue to offer our annual ATA exam prep session, where you will hear from experts about how best to prepare for the exam. We also have a mentoring program for our members who desire to learn from experienced pros or who would like to share their knowledge. You can reach out to our mentioning coordinator Kate Deimling to learn more about it.
We wish you success in taking the exam!
