Documents:

Old versions of the Franklin County Civil Service Application for Employment or Examination will be accepted until June 1, 2013.  After that old applications will be returned and candidates will need to complete the revised version.

 

If you are applying for more than one exam, you will need to submit a separate application for each exam.  The easiest way to accomplish the application for more than one exam is to complete one application.  Do not put a title or sign and date the application; then make yourself copies.  Then when you decide which exams you want to take, all you will need to do is indicate the exam title, exam number, then sign and date the form then submit it to the Franklin County Personnel Department with the filing fee for each exam, which is noted on each exam announcement.

This form needs to be completed and either mailed or brought in to our office.  If you know you are taking other exams for either the State or another Local exam when you apply, submit this form with your application.  If you sign up for another exam after you have filed your application with our office, please submit no later than 2 weeks (14 days) of the date of the exam.  Our office has to sumbit a form to Civil Service in Albany to make sure your testing material arrives at the site you will be testing at.
Please read the Alternate Test Date Policy prior to completing and submitting the application and supporting documentation.

This form will need to be submitted with the application. 

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

If you click into the exam announcement above you will find a list of the Licensed Health Care Professions titles it covers.  Please keep in mind that you need to attach all the necessary documentation to your application to verify proof.  (For example: if CPR certification is required, you must submit a copy of your valid CPR certificate.)  There is a $10 filing fee for each title you wish to apply for.  If you have any questions, please contact our office at the number(s) listed on the exam announcement.

A copy of verifiable transcript for required education and copy of the required license or professional certificate must be submitted with application.
