Examination Information:

This is a Minimum Qualifications (Readiness Evaluation) assessment weighted - Pass/Fail.

To obtain a position on the referral list, a pass result must be received. Applicants will receive their result upon completion of this Minimum Qualification Assessment.

Eligible List Information:

A servicewide, open referral list for this classification will be established for the State of California (all State of California departments, statewide).

The names of persons who successfully pass this Minimum Qualifications Assessment (Readiness Evaluation) will be merged onto a LEAP Referral List for this classification. Candidates who pass the Minimum Qualifications Assessment (Readiness Evaluation) will remain on the list for 24 months. All State departments may use the Referral List for this classification to select candidates for vacant positions.

LEAP Referral List eligibility expires 24 months after it is established. Competitors must then retake the Minimum Qualifications Assessment for this classification to reestablish list eligibility.

Any veteran who has been dishonorably discharged or released is not eligible for Veterans’ Preference. 2) An entrance examination is defined, under the law, as any open competitive examination.
