The Civil Service Commission-Cordillera said an eligibility examination will be held in June for interested examinees in the region.
In an advisory, the CSC-CAR said the examination will be done in five testing sites: Baguio City; La Trinidad, Benguet; Lagawe, Ifugao; Luna Apayao, and Bangued, Abra on June 19.
The career service examination-pen and paper test (CSE-PPT) will be for professional and sub-professional eligibility.
Civil service eligibility is required for entry into government service with a permanent position.
Eligibility can be obtained by passing the CSE or by passing a board examination as provided for in Republic Act 1080 as amended, declaring that examinations given by the various boards of examiners of the government are declared as CSEs.
In 2020 and 2021, the CSC canceled the conduct of examinations due to the pandemic and only opened the application in the first quarter of 2022, bringing in thousands of applicants.
Before the Covid-19 pandemic, examinations were usually held in March and August.
The advisory said the submission of the application will be from April 12 to 28.
“Applicants are advised to book an appointment first before proceeding to any of the CSC field offices to apply for CSE-PPT,” the advisory said.
Booking for appointments will start on April 9 via the following sites: for the regional office in Baguio City; for the Baguio field office; for the Ifugao field office; for the Apayao field office; for the Abra field office; for the Benguet field office; for the Mt. Province field office; and for the Kalinga Field Office. – PNA
