Does the Civil Service Commission use any outside testing companies?

Yes, for a few positions within the City, we offer our Civil Service Exams through outside testing companies. For our safety forces position; Police, Fire, and Telecommunicator, we often use outside testing companies to conduct the exam. For our entry level exams for Police, Fire, and Telecommunicator we use the National Testing Network. When applying for these positions, you are provided with further details about these companies and how the testing process works. For other promotional safety positions the Civil Service Commission may also choose to use an outside testing company.
