Limited Examination and Appointment Program (LEAP)

The LEAP Process

The Limited Examination and Appointment Program (LEAP) is an optional pathway to state civil service for people with disabilities. LEAP is an alternative to the traditional testing process,​ which allows applicants with disabilities to demonstrate competency through on-the-job testing known as the Job Examination Period (JEP). People with Disabilities may pursue state employment through the standard, non-LEAP process , or the LEAP process.

  7. Upon successful completion of the JEP, you're hired!​
