The Civil Service Commission (CSC) announced that interested individuals and incumbents of positions in the fire and penology services may still file their applications until January 22, 2016 for next year’s Fire Officer and Penology Officer examinations.


Examination Results will be posted on this page once it becomes available online.



The CSC, in collaboration with the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), will simultaneously administer the examinations on March 13, 2016.

The exams are open to incumbent and former personnel of the BFP and BJMP, respectively, including Bureau of Corrections and all provincial and sub-provincial jails for the latter.

Applicants must:
be Filipino citizens;
have a bachelor’s degree from a recognized institution of learning;
be physically and mentally fit;
be of good moral character;
have not been convicted of an offense involving moral turpitude;
and have not been dishonorably discharged from military service or dismissed for cause from any civilian position in the government.*

For private individuals interested to take either of the examinations, the CSC clarified that age and height requirements shall also apply. For the Fire Officer exam, applicants must be 21 to 35 years old at the time of filing of applications; no height is required. For the Penology Officer exam, applicants must be 21 to 30 years old and at least 5’4” in height for male and 5’2” for female.

Applications should be filed in person at the CSC Regional Office (CSCRO), or at any of the concerned CSCRO’s Field Offices, where the applicant intends to take the examination. Examination fee is P700.

Exam passers shall be granted the Fire Officer Eligibility and the Penology Officer Eligibility, which are both second level eligibilities. The former is specific and appropriate to second level ranks in the fire protection service and functionally related positions; the latter to second level ranks under the uniformed service in the jail management, penology, and functionally related services. However, the CSC stressed that ranks under the Philippine National Police are not covered by the eligibilities.

*Applicants with pending administrative and/or criminal cases may take the examinations without prejudice to forfeiture of the eligibility if later convicted.
