THE TEST ANNOUNCEMENT PROVIDES SPECIFIC INFORMATION ON MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS, HOW TO APPLY, AND TESTING.
For examinations consisting of multiple-choice questions that are administered on a computer, you can use the Online Application. After completing the Online Application, you will be able to schedule your examination at one of our test centers located in Harrisburg, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Erie, Johnstown, Lock Haven, or Scranton.
Some examinations consist of a rating of experience and training which require you to complete a supplement* along with the employment application. The test announcement will state if a supplement is required. Currently, not all jobs requiring supplements can be completed using the Online Application. If the test announcement does not appear in the Online Application: Examination List, you must complete a paper application by following the instructions in Option 2 below.
IMPORTANT: Go to the Open Test Announcements page for a complete listing of all open job titles for which applications are being accepted.
* Supplements will appear in the upper left corner of the announcement. If this area is blank then a supplement is not required.
