This is the training level classification in the Eligibility Specialist series established to qualify incumbents in the training and experience requirements to become an Eligibility Specialist I. This class is distinguished from the Entry level in the series in that Trainees may have limited or no directly related work experience and are not assigned the full scope of Entry level duties.
Job duties at the Trainee level include classroom and on-the-job training where the emphasis is on learning the basic regulatory and statutory requirements of multiple client services programs. Employees work under guidance and direction to complete initial case functions as they continue to learn procedures, complex regulations, and acquire the ability to apply the regulations during the training period. Trainees are given the opportunity to perform increasing levels of eligibility determination to prepare them for the duties assigned to the entry-level Eligibility Specialist I classification.
Since this is a training class, employees are expected to successfully complete all training requirements within a period not to exceed twelve (12) months, at which time they will be eligible to non-competitively promote into the Eligibility Specialist I classification. Failure to successfully complete training as prescribed will result in termination.
