Department of Conservation Exams.
In order to be eligible to apply for a job you must first pass an exam related to that type of job. Each job type is called a ‘classification’. Each classification has an exam. When you review a job you’d like to apply for, you will find what exam is required in order to be eligible to apply. For example, if you’d like to work as a geologist, you’d need to pass an ‘engineering geologist’ exam. Sometimes the exam names and classifications can be confusing, so please
contact us with questions.
Exams consist of various testing methods (eg written, oral test/interview, training and experience).
If you pass an exam, you are now eligible to apply for a job. This is called ‘list eligible’.
