Passers of the 4 August 2019 Career Service Examination-Pen and Paper Test (CSE-PPT) may now claim their Certification of Eligibility, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) advised.

Passers must personally request and claim their certification at the CSC Regional/Field Office with jurisdiction over the testing center where they took the exam. Representatives are not allowed to claim on behalf of the passers. 

The CSC provides two types of Certification of Eligibility (COE)—the COE printed on CSC letterhead and a regular COE printed on a security paper.

The COE printed on CSC letterhead is issued free of charge with a two-year validity. Passers must present a valid ID card, preferably the same as presented during exam application. If not available, the accepted ID cards are Driver’s License, Passport, PRC License, SSS ID, GSIS ID (UMID), Voter’s ID/Voter’s Certification, BIR ID (ATM type/TIN card type with picture), PhilHealth ID (must contain the holder’s name, clear picture, signature and PhilHealth number), Company/Office ID, School ID, Police Clearance/Police Clearance Certificate, Postal ID, Barangay ID, NBI Clearance, Seaman’s Book, HDMF Transaction Card, PWD ID, Solo Parent ID, Senior Citizen’s ID, or Alien Certificate of Registration Identity Card (ACR I-CARD).

The COE printed on a security paper is issued at a cost of PHP 100.00 per copy with no validity period. Passers must submit a filled-out Eligibility/Exam Records Request Form and Declaration Form which may be downloaded from the CSC website at www.csc.gov.ph, 1x1 picture with full name tag and signature, and two valid IDs. This certification may be preferred more by government agencies as supporting document for employment application, including promotion and other human resource actions/movements. The CSC advised passers to first verify the availability of the issuance of certification on security paper before going to the CSC Regional/Field Office.

Passers who have moved to or are based in another region may claim their certification at the CSC Regional or Field Office (serving as conduit CSC RO/FO) nearest their present place of residence or work. They must submit a written request to the authorized CSC Regional Office (with jurisdiction over the passer’s testing center) asking that their COE be forwarded to their preferred conduit CSC Regional/Field Office. In their written request, they must also cite their reasons for the request.

Meanwhile, the request for and provision of eligibility card is currently on hold until further notice.

Passers may directly inquire at CSC Regional/Field Offices with contact numbers available at the CSC website, www.csc.gov.ph. # # #
