Evening everyone,

I know this is a bit of a long shot but I've been searching high and low for the NATO-led STANAG 6001 foreign language proficiency tests.

Basically I'm looking to take the Polish test in the back end of this year and I was wondering whether or not anybody on this forum would have any idea as to where I might find it.

I've searched high and low on both English and Polish Google, but to no avail. If there are any former Polish service personnel on this page that could direct me I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you in advance.

The STANAG 6001 Polish language courses are performed by the Warsaw's National Defence Academy:

The National Defence Academy for 30 years already, is organizing Polish language courses for foreigners - future National Defence and other universities students, both military and civilian. For several years, we are expanding our offer with courses for military attaches accredited to the embassies.

Rich teaching facilities, long-term experience and individual approach to learners allows the course participants to prepare well for both certificate and STANAG 6001 exams. The appreciation of the defense minister for the National Defence Academy is giving to SJO (Department of Foreign Languages) the right to conduct the Polish language STANAG 6001 exam.

Currently we provide the training in the aforementioned languages on two levels of education: I and II by the standards of STANAG 6001.

The course lasts in accordance with NATO standards 590 class hours for every level of education. For officers and soldiers from Slavonic countries we also organize shorter courses lasting 150 and 240 class hours. Course price is depends on the size of the training group.

These are the same sites that I've ended up on before. Sorry for not explaining it better but I'm actually looking for the practice tests, rather than locations that sit the exams :)

NATO-led STANAG 6001 foreign language proficiency tests.

A thread from a long time ago however it just popped up at the bottom of the screen.

There are no standard tests or exams. STANAG 6001 is a set of criteria; each individual organisation (some countries have only one, some have many) that use it as an assessment tool has its own assessment methods to measure people against it.

Figure I can download it.

The criteria are downloadable from multiple sources. They do not vary language by language.

They're based on a slightly odd and very old fashioned form of assessment criteria that was or is used only in America.

A pleasure. The various inspections and visits (that don't actually mean much however at least it's a jolly to nice hotels and a banquet) are run by one country at a time, for I think a 5 or 10 year period. When I was involved, it was about to switch from Canada to Bulgaria who probably still have it unless it's recently changed.

The levels are based on century old metrics used for assessing immigrants' English. It could do with a shaking up, perhaps adopting something closer to the CEFR scale however military things move slowly and language levels (pretty well exclusively used as part of the decisions on who can do what training courses abroad) are a long way from being a high priority.
