The CELBAN CBT consists of the Listening, Reading, and Writing Tests which are to be completed over a 2.5 hour period. Examinees will be able to schedule their test date through our delivery partner, Prometric, once they have received their confirmation number and instructions from The CELBAN Centre that enable them to do so. The test can be scheduled at one of Prometric’s test sites or from a private location of their choice using Remote Proctoring, where they will be supervised by a live remote proctor.
If examinees decide to have the test remotely proctored, they will need to complete the following steps before they can test through Prometric’s remote assessment platform, ProProctor:
- Complete a systems readiness check.
- Download the ProProctor application onto their laptop or desktop computer, where they will be required to input the confirmation number and first four (4) characters of their surname, as stated in their confirmation email.
- Once completed, the examinee will be able to launch the test in ProProctor on their scheduled exam date.

Examinees must arrive 30 minutes before the scheduled appointment to allow adequate time for the proctor to compete the check-in procedures. If an examinee arrives late, they will not be allowed to take the test. If testing in a test centre, all personal items must be locked in a locker for test security purposes.

The CELBAN CBT will begin with a tutorial that will familiarize examinees with the online exam platform functionalities, including how to answer questions. Other functionalities include the ability to flag sections for review (if time permits), use of the mouse to highlight portions of the questions or Reading Test passages, and to strikeout multiple choice options with one click of the mouse. An online scratchpad will be provided through Prometric’s platform to help with answering the multiple choice questions while listening to the video and audio scenarios.
