It's usually in April or May. The best suggestion I can make until a date is announced is to look at past test dates to get an idea of when.

Last years was delayed due several weeks due to the Marathon bombings.

So when would they be accepting applications then if the exam is being held around April/May 2015?
Well, HRD usually posts an announcement on their website with the exam date and registration information several months before the exam takes place, so you may want to keep an eye out for it.

The list is up for all the projected upcoming tests for civil service 2015:

Police Officer - Cities & Towns and MBTA Transit Police apps will be accepted online starting 1/5/15 to 3/9/15 test projected 4/18/15 (No state list on this one supposedly, that is also subject to change)
Environmental Police Officer C & D apps will be accepted online starting 1/5/15 to 2/16/16 test projected 3/21/15

Remember its the state civil service unit administering these tests, all dates and times subject to change without notice or warning! good luck to all who take them down the road!

I have a question about the upcoming correction officer 1 Civil Sevice exam for 2015. If anyone could give me their opinion it would be appreciated.

I have 10 years experience working as a security officer and would like to give this a shot but I'm also hesitant because I know there will be a lot of vets and people with college degrees taking it as well so I think my chances of getting in will be slim. Should I even bother paying $100 bucks, am I throwing money down a rat hole? lol.

Thanks in advance.

You'll never get a job that you don't apply for.

For you vets that aren't able to attend the test on the 25th, make sure you sign up for one of the quarterly military make up examinations. It's a fairly simple process. Good ole Mass still hits you up with the $50 late fee though, its pathetic.

I just took the last one for 2013 civil service the beginning of this month, also figure in at last $30 for parking as well for the make up exam since there all held in Boston at the Ashburton Place building. That's if you park anywhere close to the building at least.

They sent a tweet out today that the site was under construction and they'd get it all back up asap
