PROMOTIONAL TESTS UPDATE 091021

09/10/2021
Instructions Attached in PDF

Brothers and Sisters,


First, I would like to say that OHR and Local 22 are aligned in that you have a good testing experience and are successful with navigating the online process. I would like to give thanks to all those who have been proactive in your communication to Local 22 and helped all our Brothers and Sisters by calling and by emailing any questions.  

 

Prior to your scheduled exam date, you will receive a link to the online proctoring service called "ProctorExam". There will be a link in the email that will take you to the registration page.

 

All Candidates must register through ProctorExam in advance of the exam to ensure their computers meet the system components (See PDF Instructions Attached).  If the candidates do not have a computer with a webcam, they can contact the HR professional listed on the announcement and in their notice.  Cellphones and tablets cannot be used. 

 

To assist candidates with registration, Public Safety team included a user step-by-step guide and tutorial video in the notices to approved candidates to assist them with the registration process. Attached on this email is the user guide Local 22 requested; again, See the PDF Instructions Attached. 

 

For the questions around the BC/DC exams, the promotional testing process remains consistent with the past.  The oral exam has two questions – one supervisory and one tactical/technical in nature.  OHR secures the expert raters from various jurisdictions nationwide above the rank of the level being tested.  Candidates receive additional instructions on the day of the exam and should direct any questions to the HR Professional administering their exam. 

 

Seniority will be awarded as it always has, and the process for test review remains the same as well.

Please email or call Jack Eltman if you have any more questions or concerns.
