OET - Occupational English Test


The Occupational English Test is an English language test specifically designed for the healthcare sector. It assesses the required language skills for working in an English-speaking medical environment. OET results are accepted for registration with medical bodies (e.g. AHPRA, ANMAC), applying for further study and Australian or New Zealand visas.
ALACC’s intensive OET course is designed to help students improve their English and pass the OET. Students will be taught strategies for each section of the test and will have the opportunity to take practice tests. Home study material is also provided.
