Welcome to the CELBAN registration portal. CELBAN is an online exam with two components: The Speaking Interview and the Listening, Reading and Writing Exam (Computer-Based Test, CELBAN CBT). The registration system has two steps: First you must register, pay for the full exam and select and confirm a date for your Speaking Interview. Once Speaking is confirmed, you will receive a link to register for the CELBAN CBT. You must follow this link immediately and book a CELBAN CBT exam through our online delivery provider. Once you register you will receive a second confirmation, for the CELBAN CBT. You will have a choice of completing the CELBAN CBT at a test site or online with a proctor. The CELBAN Speaking Interview is currently available only online.

Important Note: The Speaking Interview and the CELBAN CBT must be completed within 2 weeks of one another.

Ensure that both your exam dates and times are in your calendar, as you are responsible for logging in at the times specified in your confirmation emails. There are no refunds for no-shows. See the CELBAN Policies & Procedures for more details.

Before you register

CELBAN is delivered in two parts: The CELBAN Speaking Test and the CELBAN Computer Based Test (CBT). The CELBAN CBT consists of the Listening, Reading, and Writing Tests.

Your CELBAN registration opens your eligibility for the two parts of the test. This form will collect your personal details. You will select a CELBAN Speaking Test appointment time. Upon submitting your registration, you will receive a confirmation email from The CELBAN Centre confirming your CELBAN Speaking Test appointment. A follow-up email will be sent to you within three (3) business days that will include a unique eligibility number and instructions that will enable you to proceed in scheduling your CELBAN CBT appointment through Prometric.

NOTE: You must complete your CELBAN CBT within 14 days of the date you are scheduled to take your CELBAN Speaking Test. This can be either within 14 days before or 14 days after the CELBAN Speaking Test date. If this timeframe is not met in completing both parts of the test, The CELBAN Centre will not validate your results and will not provide you with an Official Test Result.

Technology Requirements

You will need to meet all of the technological requirements laid out below in order to successfully complete CELBAN remotely. If any of the requirements are not met, you will not be able to complete CELBAN and you will not be entitled to a refund. Rescheduling will be at your own cost. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the appropriate setting and technology to complete the online exam remotely.

  • A desktop computer or a laptop computer plugged directly into a power source (dual or multiple monitor configurations are not permitted).
  • Minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768 is required; however, a screen resolution of 1980 x 1020 or higher will optimize your CELBAN CBT experience if choosing to take in a remote location.
  • An external or built-in web-camera that can be used to show your test setting during the security check.
  • A wired headset that includes a good quality microphone is mandatory and must be plugged into your computer prior to entering your test appointment.
  • Internet connection speed of at least 1.5 Mbps. For the best experience, we recommend using an Ethernet cable, as this will also help reduce the risk of your connection being interrupted due to low signal strength.

  • Please review our Remote Test Requirements prior to registering for CELBAN, as it also details the mandatory requirements for your test setting.
