Goethe-Institut examinations are conducted exclusively by Goethe-Institut certified examiners whose qualification consists of both training courses and an online certification process on a regular basis.

The next training courses A1-C2 for examiners at Goethe-Institut examination centers in the USA will be offered in February 2020. To register for the trainings please contact your supervising Goethe-Insitut. You can find them here.

The training courses introduce the examiners to the exam’s content and format to prepare them for the certification. Trainings must be refreshed every three years per examiner/exam. They are offered in an online format consisting of two webinars (1h each) and a three-week tutored online phase (workload of 3,5h/week).

The Goethe-Institut examiner certification process – performed online - assesses the examiner’s testing proficiency in comparison with all Goethe-Institut examiners worldwide. It must be renewed every five years per examiner/exam. Register exclusively via the Goethe-Institut branch office responsible for the examination center.
