Civil Service Upper Level Exam Program CANCELLED

Civil Service Upper Level Exam Program CANCELLED for tonight, February 1 at Sachem Public Library.

New York State Civil Service in Albany announced today that Civil Service employees are expressly forbidden to go over how to fill out any training and experience format test. As of today, February 1, no questions about a training and experience test can be answered by any officer other than New York State Civil Service in Albany.

Suffolk County Civil Service, CLASC and SCLA only learned of this decision an hour ago. With tonight's presenter barred from answering any questions other than the "Frequently Asked Questions" on the Civil Service website, CLASC and SCLA have reluctantly chosen to cancel tonight's program. We are disappointed and appreciate your understanding. Please pass this information along to any friend or coworker you know was planning on attending tonight's program.
