SUBJECT OF EXAMINATIONTRAINING AND EXPERIENCE EVALUATION

READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION THOROUGHLY.
THIS INFORMATION WILL AFFECT YOUR FINAL GRADE!
 
The only subject of examination will be an evaluation of your training and experience. You will receive a grade on this exam based upon your Continuing Education and your licensed work experience as a Radiologic Technologist - and how you document the required information.
 
Be specific; vagueness and ambiguity will not be resolved in your favor. Additional information will not be accepted after submission of your application.
 
It is critical that you follow the directions exactly as shown below.
  • In order to receive credit for continuing education, you must document 90 hours of continuing education (or 9 college credits) within the past 6 years. You must list your continuing education activities in chronological order and indicate the date of participation, the number of contact hours, the topic and the sponsor of the activity in the Continuing Education Chart.
Use THIS LINK to access the chart if filing online.
 
Hardcopy applications should include the chart. 
 
Do not fill out the chart if you do not fully meet the above requirement.
 
 Do not submit your Continuing Ed. documentation at this time. 
 
However, you may be asked to submit it at a later date. Therefore, you should gather your documentation now and be prepared to submit it immediately if requested. A delay in submitting documentation may affect your inclusion on the Eligible List.
 
  • In order to receive full credit for your work experience as a Radiologic Technologist you must indicate the date of when you were ORIGINALLY LICENSED by the State of New York. If you only provide the date of your current registration then you will not be given credit for any work experience that pre-dates your current registration. 
  • You must also supply all of the information requested on the application for each position you list. If you do not, you may not receive credit for that work experience. 
Pay particular attention to the following items:
  • The dates of your employment must be in mm/yy format,
  • Do not write "varied" or give a range of hours for "Hours Worked per Week." Instead, estimate the number of hours worked in a typical week.
  • Under "Title" and "Duties," clearly differentiate between licensed experience as an Radiologic Technologist and all other work experience. 
Note regarding resumes: Most resumes do not contain the detailed information needed to evaluate your experience. Therefore, the submission of a resume – which is not required - is a supplement to a fully completed application, not a substitute for it.  To receive credit for a job, basic information such as employer's address, name and title of supervisor, hours in the work week, final salary, reason for leaving, etc. must be entered in the appropriate areas of the examination application.
 
IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CANDIDATE TO NOTIFY THIS COMMISSION, IN WRITING, OF ANY CHANGE OF NAME, MAILING/LEGAL/EMAIL ADDRESS, OR PHONE NUMBER:  INDICATE EXAMINATION NUMBER AND TITLE, AND YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER.
 
DISABLED VETERANS: Visit our homepage at www.nassaucivilservice.com to view information (including a downloadable credit request form) on a recent amendment to the New York Constitution regarding the award and use of additional credits for certain disabled veterans on civil service examinations. The credit request form is also available in our office at 40 Main St., Hempstead NY.

If non-disabled veterans credits have previously been used to obtain an appointment or promotion, for eligible lists established after January 1, 2014, disabled veterans may be entitled to additional credits on a civil service examination if they have used non-disabled veterans credits to obtain an appointment or promotion with New York State or a local government, and subsequent to such use, they have been determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs ("VA"; formerly known as the United States Veterans Administration) to be a qualified disabled veteran, as defined in the New York State Civil Service Law. In such cases, the disabled veteran shall be entitled to apply for and use 10 credits on New York State and local open competitive and promotion examinations, minus the number of non-disabled credits he or she has previously used.  The additional credits can only be used once.
