19-4317.Same; competitive examinations. (a) All competitive examinations for positions in the classified service shall relate to those matters which will fairly test the capacity and fitness of the persons examined to efficiently discharge the duties of the class in which employment is sought.

(b) The competitive examinations shall, after published notice, be open to all applicants who are citizens of the United States, and who meet with reasonable standards or requirements fixed by the civil service board with regard to experience, character, age, education, physical condition, and such other factors as may be held to relate to the ability of the candidates to perform with reasonable efficiency the duties of the position, including tenure, if such requirement be deemed appropriate. No standards or requirements shall be fixed with reference to education, age or physical condition except such as relate directly to the duties of the office or employment to be filled. Persons under such physical disability as not to make them ineligible by reason thereof, shall be examined in such manner as will fairly test their ability to perform the duties of the position, notwithstanding such physical disability. The civil service board may require candidates in filing their applications to submit certificates of general or special qualifications as the good of the service may require. Examinations shall be held at such times and places as in the judgment of the civil service board most nearly meet the convenience of applicants, practicability of administration, and the needs of the service.

(c) The civil service board may also require candidates to undergo an examination at designated places in the state, in cases where oral tests or tests for manual skill may be necessary to determine the fitness of such candidates.
