Employment Testing

The Testing and Validation Section is responsible for initial skills testing and screening of applicants to determine eligibility for a position. We are also responsible for all competitive examinations, promotional examinations, and employment interviews in the classified service. The Section ensures valid examination and interview procedures in accordance with the Federal Uniform Guidelines for Employee Selection Procedures, as well as compliance of test construction and test development to other applicable federal standards.

GENERAL INFORMATION:

All City of Miami classifications do not require assembled competitive examinations. There is not a single Civil Service Exam that an interested applicant can take to qualify for consideration for all jobs within the City of Miami. Because different jobs have different knowledge and skill sets, different selection tools must be utilized to ensure that the selection method is job-related, and to ensure that the employees hired have the requisite knowledge, skills, abilities and other characteristics needed to serve the citizens of our City.

POLICE OFFICER - BASIC RECRUIT (As of November 10, 2011):

A MESSAGE TO CANDIDATES WHO TOOK THE JUNE 2008 OR OCTOBER 2008 CITY OF MIAMI POLICE OFFICER BASIC RECRUIT EXAMINATIONS

On May 7, 2009, a hiring freeze was instituted by the City Manager. As a result, no action was taken in the hiring process for the Police Officer Basic Recruit classification. In accordance with the City's Civil Service Rules the names of all candidates who took the June 2008 Police Officer Basic Recruit exam remained on the current eligibility register. On October 20, 2011, the City Manager lifted the hiring freeze for Police Officer Basic Recruit. The Miami Police Department (MPD) has resumed the processing of candidates who earned a passing score on the June 2008 Police Officer Basic Recruit exam. After MPD has completed processing candidates from the June 2008 exam administration, the eligibility register from the June 2008 exam will be terminated, and the Department of Human Resources will establish an eligibility register from the October 2008 exam. After the October 2008 eligibility register is established, candidates who completed all parts of the examination may view their results online at www.miamigov.com/employment, or pick up their yellow eligibility card from the Testing and Validation Section of the Department of Human Resources, Monday through Friday, from 9 AM - 4:30 PM, excluding legal holidays (444 SW 2nd Avenue, Suite 746, Miami FL 33130; 305-416-2011.)

This message will only be updated after new information is available. If you check back and this message is the same, please understand that the situation remains as stated above.


If you have changed your address or telephone number since the date of your examination, please visit our Employment Office to complete a Change of Address Form. Updating contact information must be done in person or by U.S. mail. Your application data will be the hiring department's only means of contacting you.

Your continued patience is very much appreciated.

Thank you.
