Remember to be on time for your exam. If you are late or do not report, you may be disqualified. Should you encounter a problem, call the Office of Human Resources prior to the examination. If you call after the scheduled examination, we may be unable to reschedule you.

When you receive a letter inviting you to a written or computerized examination, read it carefully. If you are not available, call the Office of Human Resources as soon as possible. Do not wait until the day of the examination to call. The Human Resources representative will be at the testing site and may not be available to speak with you.
