Civil Service Exam Portal

Welcome to the Albany County Department of Civil Service Exam Portal.

Here you can submit applications for examinations and view active eligible lists. To register for automatic email notification of newly announced examinations, click here.

All applicants must meet the minimum qualifications as stated on the exam announcement or job posting. All exam application filing fees are non-refundable. If you do not meet the minimum qualifications, you will not be issued a refund.

Some municipalities and jurisdictions have residence requirements for employment, so even though you may not need to be a resident to take the examination, you may need to be a resident to be considered for appointment.

Experience will be rated as follows:
• 1-10 hours worked per week = ¼ time
• 11-20 hours worked per week = ½ time
• 21-30 hours worked per week = ¾ time
• 31-40 hours worked per week = full time
The rating scale will be applied to all part-time experience noted on the application to determine full-time equivalency.
