Exam Description

State law requires the passing of this exam to be eligible to apply for Court Officer positions. Individuals who do not take and pass this exam will be ineligible for Court Officer positions until another Court Officer exam is offered. Registrants must pay a $100 examination fee to sit for the exam.

Prior exams are no longer valid.

Individuals who pass this exam will receive information regarding the next steps in the hiring process for the Court Officer positions.  Passing the Court Officer Examination alone does not guarantee that you will receive an interview.  Persons who apply to a Court Officer job posting, after passing a Court Officer entrance examination must also meet the eligibility requirements for this job to be considered for appointment. Exam registrants should also be aware that due to the anticipated large volume of qualified candidates, job applicants selected for an interview typically exceed the minimum requirements.
