Pass Written Exam
Before applying for a Job Vacancy with ABC, candidates must first pass a written exam. Make sure you meet the minimum qualifications for the exam. Refer to the Exam Bulletin – Agent for upcoming exams and application cut off dates.
In order to take the Agent exam, you must first submit a State Application Form (STD.678) along with the Criminal Record Supplemental Questionnaire and documentation to support adherence to the minimum qualifications.
To apply for an exam, please submit the following documents:
AGENT Exam (POST PELLETB)
- State Application Form (STD. 678)
- STD. 678 Instructions
- Criminal Record Supplemental Questionnaire (CalHR-884)
- Unofficial College Transcripts (if applicable)
At this point in the process we highly recommend that you visit the CalCareers website and create an account. Once you create an account, you will be able to fill out a State application (STD. 678) and save it for future use. This same application template can be used to apply for job vacancies once you pass the written exam.
