    Thumbs down Promotional Requirments

    Our department is establishing minimum requirements that a person must meet before he/she can be eligible to take a promotional exam. There will be requirement for each rank. Some of the requirements that we have come up with are minimum number of years of service, holding certain levels of certification and taking certain classes. I would like to know what requirments other departments have to be able to take a promotion exam. Any information will be greatly apprciated.

    Where duty calls, there you will find us!
