What is a Substitute List and when is it used?

An Eligible List may be certified as a substitute list for positions which perform similar duties but are filled with different classifications. For this purpose, a similar classification is one at a lower level in the same class series or one in which the type and scope of duties performed, as well as the minimum training and experience required are substantially similar. If you are contacted for an interview by a County department, you will be informed of the classification and other relevant information. If you choose not to interview for a similar classification, you will remain on the Eligible List for which you originally applied.
