This 2 day course is designed to provide participants with an understanding of the minimum qualifications (MQ) evaluation process and how to develop a 511B tool. Utilizing best practices, participants will learn the methods used to interpret and apply MQs during the application review process. The State application is the initial document used by applicants to present their qualifications, dates and lengths of employment, and job duties. This information is evaluated and compared to the class specification to determine whether or not an applicant legally meets the MQs to compete in an examination. The second day of the course which includes a lab session focuses on the techniques included to develop a 511B, a tool created to assist with the MQ evaluation process necessary to determine if an applicant meets the MQs required to participate in an examination or transfer to a different classification.


Acquire the knowledge and skills to interpret and apply MQs during the application review process and to develop comprehensive 511B tools. Upon successful completion of this class, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the resources and tools used to assist with interpreting MQ’s
  • Comprehend the process to interpret and apply MQ language
  • Apply “Best Practices” for the evaluation of MQ’s and overcoming obstacles
  • Create departmental 511Bs
