APPLICATION FEE: A fee and separate application is required for each examination for which you apply. The required fee must accompany your application. A check or money order, payable to "Franklin County Personnel Department" shall indicate the examination number(s). If applying in person, cash will be accepted in the office.

Application for Examination or Employment

Please note that the Civil Service Application has been updated as of 1/18/16.  The previous version of the application will be accepted until May 1, 2016. 

Please read the Alternate Test Date Policy prior to completing and submitting the application and supporting documentation.

The request for an Exam Fee Waiver must be submitted with the examination application. 


Civil Service Law Section 50.5(b):
". . . fees shall be waived for candidates who certify to the state civil service department . . . that they are unemployed and primarily responsible for the support of a household, or are receiving public assistance."


It is imperative that you maintain your current contact information with the Personnel Office during and after the examination process. When necessary, provide the Notification of Change Form to the address provided at the top of the form to update your civil service records. We cannot guarantee receipt of important Civil Service Exam information if contact details are not current.

If you are scheduled to take a State or another Local exam on the same date of the exam for which you applied, submit the Cross-Filer form with your exam application. If you learn of a conflicting exam date after filing your application with Franklin County, the Cross-Filer form must be either mailed or hand-delivered to the Personnel Office within two weeks (14 days) prior to the date of the exam. This provides time for Civil Service in Albany to ensure your testing material is at the appropriate examination site.

Please read the general instructions before applying for any Franklin County Civil Service Exams. 


Be prepared to endure the physical fitness standards if you are applying for the Police Officer & Deputy Sheriff/Correction Officer examinations.

You will be required to pass the physical examination in order to be eligible for employment.
