The Civil Service Commission (CSC) is set to administer the Fire Officer Examination (FOE) and Penology Officer Examination (POE) to a total of 53,393 examinees on 2 June 2024.

“Everything is set for the FOE and POE examinations, which will be conducted across 16 regions nationwide. The CSC anticipates the cooperation of all examinees to ensure the successful administration of the exams,” said CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles.

Chairperson Nograles reminded examinees of the FOE to check Examination Advisory No. 7, s. 2024, and POE takers to check Examination Advisory No. 8, s. 2024 to familiarize themselves with the school assignments and important reminders in taking the exam.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has issued the list of testing centers and important reminders for about 6,400 examinees of the Basic Competency on Local Treasury Examination (BCLTE) on 2 June 2024.

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles advised BCLTE takers to carefully read the Examination Advisory No. 9, s. 2024, which is accessible via the CSC website.

“As part of the exam preparations, please make sure to check the Online Notice of School Assignment (ONSA) to know your designated testing site. The CSC wishes you all the best as you take this crucial step to becoming members of the civil service as Local Treasurer and Assistant Local Treasurer,” said Chairperson Nograles.

Individuals planning to take the 11 August 2024 Career Service Examination - Pen and Paper Test (CSE-PPT) for both Professional and Subprofessional Levels may apply until 13 June 2024.

Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairperson Karlo Nograles announced that there will be more than 90 testing centers in 16 regions nationwide to accommodate individuals interested in obtaining eligibility for first and second level positions in the civil service.

“We are encouraging interested applicants to apply as early as possible since acceptance of applications shall be on a first-come, first-served basis and may be closed any time before the deadline once the CSC Regional or Field Office has already reached the target number of applicants. Hindi lamang ito magbibigay sa inyo ng mas maagang pagkakataon na maproseso ang inyong aplikasyon, kundi pati na rin ng pagkakataon na makapaghanda nang maigi para sa mga sumusunod na hakbang,” said Chairperson Nograles.

Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairperson Karlo Nograles invites civil servants looking to improve their skills and competencies to enroll in the online learning and development (L&D) programs offered by the CSC.

These programs are designed to address the evolving needs of public service, ensuring that civil servants are well-equipped to meet contemporary challenges.

“As civil servants, it is essential that we continuously update our knowledge and skills to keep pace with new advancements. The CSC, through the Civil Service Institute (CSI), offers various courses on human resource (HR) and organizational development (OD) aimed to help us become effective public servants who are the foundation of a strong bureaucracy,” said Chairperson Nograles.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) called upon government officials and employees to manifest patriotism by honoring the Philippine flag in observance of the National Flag Days from 28 May to 12 June 2024.

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles reminded civil servants nationwide that the commemoration of the National Flag Days provides an opportune time for all Filipinos to collectively reflect on the significance of our National Flag.

"The Philippine flag is more than a symbol of independence. It represents the collective pursuit of Filipinos for freedom and national progress. As civil servants, let us lead by example in demonstrating our patriotism not only through words but through actions, starting with the simple act of respecting the flag,” said Chairperson Nograles.
