Booking your exam

There are two exam-writing options available. You can write at home with a proctor via ProctorU or at a test centre with Pearson VUE.

As with the regular exam application fee, there is an exam booking fee (+ applicable taxes). The booking fee goes directly to ProctorU or Pearson VUE to cover their costs of delivering the exams across Canada. The CNA certification exams are delivered through these networks, giving you greater scheduling flexibility by offering a two-week testing window.
