The Classified group is divided into four classes:

  1. Competitive Class: includes all positions for which it is practical to determine merit and fitness of the applicants by competitive examination. Many College staff positions are in this class.
  2. Non-competitive Class: includes positions determined impractical to fill through competitive examination. Merit and fitness for these positions are determined by a review of candidates training and experience.
  3. Labor Class: includes unskilled positions which there are generally no minimum job qualifications.
