To become an Approved Test Centre, the requirement is for a Marlins representative to conduct a remote inspection of your office via Microsoft Teams and a webcam.  This process includes reviewing the testing facilities for security and compatibility; checking that test administrators are fully apprised of testing requirements; and that tests are being properly implemented and recorded.  


The inspection process usually takes 1-2 hours, depending on the size of your centre and whether there is a requirement for training or rectification.  If you also wish to adopt the Marlins Test of Spoken English (TOSE), it is possible to train your staff for this.  The TOSE is also carried out remotely and is conducted over 2 day, 3/4 hours each day.

Please note that Marlins does not offer exclusivity to clients requesting to become Approved Test Centres. We have Approved Test Centres in both the public and private sector: see our website listings for details of current Approved Test Centres: .
