Statutes mandate that only those applicants who meet the minimum qualifications (MQs) for a posted position are eligible for employment. MQs are the minimum class entry requirements (knowledge, skills, abilities, education and competencies) that an applicant must have to be considered for a position. Similarly, current employees must meet MQs for a promotion.

Visit the Colorado Department of Personnel & Administration website for details on class descriptions, minimum qualifications, testing, hiring, compensation, and Rules & Procedures.
