​​​Promotional Exams 

Applicants must have a permanent civil service appointment with the Department of Health Care Services, and meet the minimum qualifications as stated on the exam announcement to participate in promotional examinations.  Applicants not meeting promotional requirements or minimum qualifications will not be admitted to the examination. 

Exceptions to this requirement can be found under Title 2, § 235 of the California Code of Regulations which provides an employee who has moved from one agency to another agency without a break in service the opportunity to participate, if otherwise eligible, in the promotional examination for the agency from which that employee moved while employed under probationary status, limited-term appointment, or temporary authorization until that employee first attains permanent status in the new agency.  When the promotional examination is being held for an administrative, professional or technical class, the employee may participate in the promotional examination anytime within three years providing there has been no subsequent break in state service by resignation, retirement or removal for cause. ​
