How long will my name stay on the eligibility list?
Eligibility lists are generally active from 6 months to one year from the date of certification, and may be extended at the request of the Human Resources Director, and approval of the Civil Service Board.

Promotional eligibility lists are valid for 1 or 2 years, depending on the bargaining unit agreement covering the position.
