The Fire Officer, Penology Officer, and Basic Competency on Local Treasury Examinations scheduled on June 17 will instead be given on June 24, 2018. This was announced by the Civil Service Commission through Examination Advisory No. 11, s. 2018.
The rescheduling was made to ensure sufficient time for preparation of administrative requirements and procedures for the conduct of the examinations in light of the two national holidays on June 12 (Araw ng Kalayaan) and on June 15 (Eid’l Fitr or end of Ramadan).
The resulting Fire Officer Eligibility and the Penology Officer Eligibility are both second level eligibilities that are specific and appropriate for second level ranks in the fire protection and jail management and penology services, respectively, and other functionally related services. On the other hand, passing the BCLTE will result in the conferment of the Local Treasurer Eligibility – a second level eligibility, which is appropriate for appointment to Local Treasurer and Assistant Local Treasurer positions, and to positions under the Financial Services that do not require practice of profession and are not covered by Bar/Board or Special Laws.
The CSC will issue an advisory on school assignments and reminders for the examinations through its website (csc.gov.ph) and Facebook page (fb.com/PhilippineCivilServiceCommission). For related queries, examinees are advised to verify with the CSC Regional Office where they filed their applications. A complete directory of the CSC Regional Offices may be accessed at the CSC website.
