YES! You can take the CELBAN exam at other sites, if your nearest location is full.

Hello Kim,

Regarding the test dates, (I will be attending a free orientation regarding CELBAN here in Calgary, as I was trying to squeeze myself on the test dates that are already full until next year of May)  it’s the testing centre here in Calgary as posted on the CELBAN site: Immigration Language and Vocational Centre. Is there any testing centre that is conducted here in Calgary? I have little knowledge with CELBAN to be honest, it says there the test dates and says full, here is the link . I hope this is wrong so I can still have hope in taking the exam by December or January. So I called that centre and asked if i have the chance to sit on the exam even if it’s already full, the lady said I can still register and take chances on the waiting list which I might be doing.
I think I would need help in writing, I need someone to correct me with my sentence construction and grammar as well. How much is the enrolment on this area, if i may ask?

Thank you again.


C3LBANHereDear Mary,

Thanks for the reply and information. Yes, this is the only center in Calgary. However, you can take the CELBAN exam at other test center sites, if your nearest location is full.
I would recommend you ensure that you are confident that you will pass the exam before you take it, so being on a waiting list so you can take the exam before May is good, but taking the exam too soon is not. There is a fine and delicate balance. You only get 3 chances to take the exam, and your exam will expire in 2 years. It takes longer than 2 years to become a nurse, so you will need to keep one of your three chances available for when it expires. So in reality you only have two chances to pass the CELBAN. Make it count!
