Tests are given only when we have a position posted that requires such testing. Applicants meeting the requirements of the position will be contacted for a testing appointment. (Length of time to complete tests varies, but average 2-3 hours.) Tests are administered at the administrative office building, Monday through Friday; 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (includes the lunch hour). Occasionally, a skills test is administered for equipment operation, welding, etc. Such tests are administered at other locations determined by the department.
