The public can now take tests at the DCAS Computer-Based Testing and Application Centers (CTAC). However, walk-ins are no longer welcome due to the present coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic; instead, appointments must be made online via the Online Application System (OASys).

The following positions are open for applications starting on October 5: plasterer, probation officer, school food service manager, traffic enforcement agent, heating plant technician (housing authority), electrician, elevator mechanic, environmental police officer, housing manager, landscape architect, occupational therapist (DOE), and physical therapist (DOE).

In its 80 agencies, New York City has hundreds of thousands of employees. For the majority of these positions, the hiring process begins with a test. Applications cost between $40 and $101.

Visit the DCAS website for further details about registering for these and other tests. Visit via the OASys to submit an application for a civil service exam that is open during this application period.
