Placement in all language levels is based on the Canadian Language Benchmarks Placement Test (CLBPT). The Adult Training Centre is the only certified CLB assessment centre in the province and provides English language assessment for eligible clients on-site in St. John’s (permanent residents only) and through remote assessment at its Corner Brook and Grand Falls-Windsor regional offices (for permanent residents, international students, temporary foreign workers, and their spouses).

The Centre is also a designated site for the CELPIP and CAEL assessments. Both are offered on a regular basis. For further information on theses assessments, check our CELPIP/CAEL tab.
