COVID -19 Update:

Due to the closure of many test sites and the ongoing health concerns regarding COVID-19, there has been a disruption in entry-level testing. As this difficult and unprecedented situation improves, test sites will begin to consider resuming testing, with proper social distancing and cleaning protocols in place. Candidates desiring to test should check the website for upcoming tests at the various test sites, as their availability is expected to increase over time. Please understand that Empco does not have any control over whether a specific test site should open for testing. Candidates must follow the safety and health protocols for the state and county they are testing in, as well as those in place at the specific test site. Candidates will be turned away if they do not follow these protocols.
