The Civil Service Commission (CSC) does not endorse any review material or review center for the Career Service Examination (CSE).

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles warned the public against review centers, groups, and private individuals using the name, logo, and website of the CSC or claiming to be endorsed by the Commission in offering online and face-to-face review classes for the CSE Professional and Subprofessional Levels.

Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairperson Karlo Nograles urges public servants to elevate their knowledge by joining the competency-based learning and development (L&D) courses offered online through the CSC Learning Management System (LMS).

The LMS is an online platform developed by the Civil Service Institute (CSI) that serves as a one-stop-shop for civil servants who want to enhance their leadership and human resource (HR) management skills.

Aside from blended programs, the LMS also offers eLearning Courses, a self-directed approach that allows participants to access online learning resources to learn at their own pace anytime, anywhere, without any intervention from an instructor.

“The LMS is not just a product of the CSC’s commitment to utilize digital resources to improve public service delivery, para rin po ito sa ating mga kawani na naghahanap ng mga training upang mapa-unlad ang kanilang mga sarili. By offering online courses, our government employees can continue learning wherever and whenever they want to,” explained Chairperson Nograles.

Individuals planning to take the upcoming Career Service Examination-Pen and Paper Test (CSE-PPT) on 3 March 2024 may still file their application in designated Civil Service Commission (CSC) Regional Offices (ROs) or Field Offices (FOs) until Friday, 12 January 2024.

The extended application period was a response to growing interest in the CSE-PPT Professional and Subprofessional Levels. The CSC announced that additional working days have been provided to accommodate more applicants.

“By extending the filing period in regions with the most number of applicants, we hope to surpass the 345,194 individuals who took the 20 August 2023 Career Service written examination alone,” said CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles.

Workers in government who have been in the service for at least 10 years and have acquired relevant knowledge and skills but do not possess the appropriate civil service eligibility are encouraged to apply for the Grant of Career Service Eligibility – Preference Rating (CSE-PR).

Under Civil Service Commission (CSC) Resolution No. 2301123 promulgated on 7 December 2023, a Preference Rating of a maximum of 10 points shall be added to the failed rating range (70.00 to 79.99) to achieve the passing rate of 80.00 for qualified applicants in Career Service Examinations (CSEs), thereby qualifying them for Career Service Professional or Subprofessional eligibility.

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles acknowledged the prevalent circumstance where numerous government employees, driven by a genuine commitment to public service, find themselves lacking the requisite civil service eligibility.

“In recognition of these government workers who have already contributed so much in our efforts to provide efficient public service, the CSC has resolved to grant them with CSE preference rating under specific conditions,” he added.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) is currently accepting nominations for the 2024 Search for Outstanding Government Workers through its Regional Offices, with the online submission deadline set for 31 March 2024.

As part of the government’s rewards and incentives mechanism under the Honor Awards Program (HAP), the annual search aims to recognize civil servants who have shown utmost dedication and commitment to their work, as well as to inspire other state employees toward deeper involvement in public service.

All government workers in the career and non-career service including appointive barangay officials may be nominated. Employees who are under Job Order or Contract of Service are excluded from the coverage of the program.
