SECTION I INTRODUCTION 1. PURPOSE This pamphlet provides qualification standards for Salary Schedule C and equivalent positions, and for wage earner, supervisor, and foreman positions that are commonly occupied by local national (LN) employees in the U.S. Army in Germany. 2. REFERENCES Appendix A lists references. 3. EXPLANATION OF ABBREVIATIONS AND TERMS The glossary defines abbreviations and terms. 4. DOCUMENTATION a. The use of the qualification rating sheet in appendix B or a similar locally developed rating sheet to document qualification evaluations and determinations of applicants is— (1) Encouraged for inexperienced human resources (HR) employees. (2) Encouraged when documenting ratings for higher level positions. (3) Required when documenting qualification determinations of surplus employees. Rating sheets may be used during labor-court litigations resulting from placements, displacements, or lack thereof when a reduction in force (RIF) is implemented. b. The completed rating sheet should be kept with the application and other documents that are a part of the application packet. The rating sheet should be kept in the official personnel folder (OPF) once an individual has been appointed to a specific position. c. A completed rating sheet for candidates who were either not selected, not qualified, or withdrew from further consideration may be destroyed. If the application packet is not returned to the applicant but kept for further consideration, the completed rating sheet must be kept with all other documents that are a part of the application packet. d. Completed rating sheets for surplus employees must be kept with all other RIF documents in the active or inactive OPF or RIF-placement files. 5. GENERAL a. This pamphlet will be used primarily to appraise and rate applicant qualifications for recruiting and staffing LN positions in employing organizations of the U.S. Forces in Germany. The information in this pamphlet may also be of interest to supervisors and managers, applicants, and others who wish to obtain information about qualification requirements for employment with the U.S. Forces in Germany. This pamphlet is available only in English. b. Qualification standards have been developed based on— (1) Pertinent provisions of the Collective Tariff Agreement II (CTA II). 3 AE Pam 690-70 ● 29 Aug 06

(2) Information published by the German Federal Labor Administration about required professional education and formal occupational training (Blätter zur Berufskunde) for a wide variety of positions in all sectors of the German local economy. (3) The formal German educational system. c. The standards are intended to identify applicants who are likely to perform successfully on the job and those who are unlikely to do so. The standards are designed to determine an applicant’s minimum qualifications for a particular position; they are not designed to rank candidates, identify the best qualified candidate, or otherwise substitute for a careful analysis of an applicant’s knowledge, skills, or abilities. SECTION II QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS 6. EDUCATION AND TRAINING LEVELS a. Education and training (E&T) levels are based on the German school system. E&T levels appraise and define formal German education and occupational training to determine the educational level that is creditable for making minimum qualification determinations. Creditable E&T must have been completed successfully with an appropriate certificate or diploma. Appendix C explains the five E&T levels that have been established. b. Formal E&T that was completed in foreign educational institutions is creditable for most positions. HR personnel will make appropriate equivalent determinations using information on the Anabin website (http://www.anabin.de). In case of dispute or doubt as to the credibility of foreign education as described on the application for employment and compared to the Anabin website, the applicant should be encouraged to send a written request for evaluation and recognition to the Ministry of Culture and Education in the state (Land) where the applicant is residing. Education in the United States; U.S. territories and possessions, and the District of Columbia; and E&T in recognized overseas U.S. Forces educational and vocational training institutions is creditable toward meeting qualification requirements in this pamphlet without equivalency determinations. The latter does not apply to jobs that require host-nation education and certification (for example, legal advisors, engineers, teachers). c. Entry grades that are based solely on E&T levels for positions that are subject to the general qualification standards for Salary Schedule C and equivalent positions (app D) are as follows: E&T levels I II III IV V

Grades C-3 and equivalent C-4 , C-4a, and equivalent C-5, and equivalent C-5a and equivalent C-6 and equivalent

4 AE Pam 690-70 ● 29 Aug 06

d. The following qualification table for Civilian Support (CS) positions will be used to determine the appropriate qualification standard for a ZB salary schedule position. Salary Schedule ZB 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

Salary Schedule C 1 2 3 4a 5a 6 6a 7a 8 9 10

7. GENERAL QUALIFICATION STANDARDS FOR SALARY SCHEDULE C AND EQUIVALENT POSITIONS General qualification standards for Salary Schedule C and equivalent positions are in appendix D. These standards establish the amount and type of required experience based on E&T levels for each grade of the Salary Schedule C and equivalent level for which a specific qualification standard does not exist, or for which the CTA II does not specifically prescribe qualification requirements. The standards establish the amount and type of experience required for the appropriate grade beyond the entry grade based on E&T levels (para 6c). For appointment or progression beyond the entry grades, at least 1year of experience for the appropriate grade as defined below is required. Paragraph 23 explains how to credit experience gained before and after the E&T level was completed, part-time experience, voluntary work experience, self-employment, and experience gained while employed in more than one position. Creditable experience could have been gained within or outside the U.S. Forces. a. Salary Schedule C-3 through C-4a. Creditable experience includes clerical work in an office or store, working with computers, bookkeeping, making and recording inventories, telephone marketing, arranging for events, or as a cashier or in a similar position. b. Salary Schedule C-5 through C-7a. Creditable experience must be in the same or a similar line of work as the job for which considered. The experience must demonstrate that the applicant possesses the particular knowledge, skills, and abilities required for the position. The amount of higher-level experience must have a reasonable relationship to the required total number of years. c. Salary Schedule C-8 through C-10. Creditable experience is work at a high level of responsibility in a closely related professional field that is in the same line of work as the position to be filled. The experience must demonstrate thorough knowledge, sound judgment, personal initiative, and the ability to make sound decisions. 8. SPECIFIC QUALIFICATION STANDARDS FOR SALARY SCHEDULE C POSITIONS Specific qualification standards for Salary Schedule C positions are in appendix E in occupational series order. These standards establish specific education, training, and experience requirements for individually selected positions for which the general qualification standard is not likely to produce candidates who are able to perform successfully on the job. Under this premise, specific standards that are currently available are listed in appendix F by occupational series and position title. The standards require higher E&T levels and, in most cases, job-related education and experience. As the need arises, additional specific standards will be developed and added. 5 AE Pam 690-70 ● 29 Aug 06

9. QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR SALARY POSITIONS PRESCRIBED BY CTA II Salary schedules and positions identified below are subject to qualification requirements prescribed by the CTA II. Accordingly, qualification requirements in the CTA II must be used when appraising and rating an applicant’s qualifications to fill positions subject to these salary schedules.

Salary Schedule C (L) C (FS) C (TK) C (DV) H K and KD P

Position Title/Employees Covered Teachers Air traffic controllers Telecommunications personnel Information technologists in conjunction with the specific qualification standards in appendix E Employees in accommodations, catering, and services establishments Employees in hospitals and other medical facilities Locally developed standards that are approved by the IMA-Europe Fire Protection Specialist

10. QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR SUPERVISOR, LEADER, FOREMAN, AND WAGE EARNER POSITIONS Appendix G implements and supplements tariff provisions, and establishes education, certification, training, experience, and English language proficiency requirements. Appendix G also establishes additional qualification requirements that external candidates must meet. Applicable CTA II appendixes and positions are:

CTA II Appendix A D F H L

Employees Covered Wage earners Foremen Drivers Employees in accommodations, catering, and services establishments Apprentices

11. FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY LEVELS Foreign language proficiency level definitions are in appendix H. Many jobs require a specific foreign language proficiency level. Three levels of foreign language proficiency are defined for use by managers and supervisors to determine the appropriate language level for the position. To determine an applicant’s foreign language proficiency, a written multiple-choice-type test may be administered to selectees for positions that require proficiency. This also applies to mandatory placements of surplus employees under RIF procedures into positions that require foreign language proficiency. The United States Army Defense Language Institute developed an English language proficiency test. This test is designed to determine English language proficiency in listening, understanding, and reading comprehension. The test material and corresponding instructions are available in each civilian personnel advisory center (CPAC) in Germany and the Civilian Personnel Operations Center (CPOC). The selecting official will also determine an applicant’s foreign language abilities during the job interview.

12. INVENTORY OF SALARY SCHEDULE C POSITIONS Appendix F provides a list of Salary Schedule C positions and types of qualification standards. The list shows which qualification standards apply to specific positions (the general qualification standards for Salary Schedule C and equivalent positions in appendix D, specific qualification standards in appendix E, or CTA II requirements for certain salary schedule positions in paragraph 9; and for supervisor, leader, foreman, and wage earner positions in paragraph 10 and appendix G). Appendix F also identifies positions for which college graduation with major study in the directly related area of specialization of the position is required. 13. POSITIONS THAT REQUIRE COLLEGE GRADUATION IN A SPECIFIC SUBJECT AREA Applicants who are required to possess a directly related college degree for a position that is not covered by a specific qualification standard meet the requirements at the C-8 grade level without any job-related experience (for example, chemist, microbiologist, entomologist). SECTION III SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS NOTE: The use of the statements in this section must be determined locally and, if applicable to a particular position, must be included in vacancy announcements and communicated to selected candidates before appointment to a position. 14. POLICE GOOD CONDUCT CERTIFICATE “On initial appointment, or re-appointment after a break in service, candidates who have been selected for a position must present a police good conduct certificate before appointment to the position. The applicant must obtain the certificate from the local resident registration office. The cost for the certificate is not reimbursable. Non-U.S.-citizen family members, except German citizens, are exempt from this requirement.” 15. FOREIGN NATIONAL SCREENING “In accordance with USAREUR Regulation 604-1, within 3 days after appointment, a background check must be initiated to determine suitability for continued employment with the U.S. Forces in Germany. If results are unacceptable, employment will be terminated during the probationary period or any time thereafter if the background check reveal that the employee constitutes a security risk.” 16. MANDATORY TRAINING “The position requires completion of specific job-related training that must be completed within a specific period of time after appointment to a position. Successful completion of mandatory training becomes a condition for continued employment and progression within the occupation. The training is offered during workhours and paid for by the employer.” 17. ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY “The position requires an English language proficiency level (I), (II), or (III) [the appropriate level must be identified]. To determine an applicant’s English language proficiency, a test may be administered and must be passed at the level required for the position.” 18. MEDICAL EVALUATIONS “The position requires successful completion of a medical evaluation and periodic evaluations thereafter as well as an examination before separation from employment. The employing organization, with medical authorities, will determine the types of examinations required, giving due consideration to examination requirements stipulated in German labor law.” 7 AE Pam 690-70 ● 29 Aug 06

19. SPECIAL SKILLS “The position requires applicants to possess special skills. The skills have been identified by the selecting official as desired (not required) in addition to the qualification standards. They are: [list the skills]. Lack of the special skills will not result in disqualification, if minimum qualification requirements for the position are otherwise met.” 20. PHYSICAL DEMANDS “The position necessitates prolonged periods of walking, standing, climbing, and bending, and the ability to lift up to [state weight] pounds.” SECTION IV SPECIAL PROVISIONS 21. EXCEPTIONS The following exceptions apply to the application of qualification standards published in this pamphlet: a. When experience and education requirements of new standards exceed those of previous standards, current employees who do not meet the new requirements will be retained without prejudice in their current position. b. Current employees who do not meet the new E&T level I (Hauptschule mit Abschluss) must have 2 years of experience as defined in paragraph 7a to meet the new E&T level I requirement. c. Current employees who have served at least 1 year in their current position qualify for the next higher grade in the same or similar occupation for positions that are covered by the general qualification standard for Salary Schedule C and equivalent positions (app D). This proviso also applies for positions that are covered by the specific standards (app E) unless the individual specific standard already includes provisions for exceptions for internal placements. d. External applicants must meet the current established qualification standards. 22. SUBSTITUTION Substitution of experience for higher education is not applicable for positions covered by the general qualification standards for Salary Schedule C and equivalent positions and for positions covered by specific qualification standards. The standards already recognize the highest formal educational level and a combination of education, training, and experience that is creditable for making minimum qualification determinations. Additional formal education, certification, and occupational training may be used by operating officials in the selection process. For salary and wage earner positions covered by provisions of CTA II, substitution is authorized if permitted by pertinent tariff provisions and USAREUR or AE supplements to it (app G). 23. CREDITING EXPERIENCE Normally, creditable years of experience must have been performed after completion of the credited E&T level. This is a specific requirement for positions for which a completed apprenticeship or university graduation is a prerequisite. There may, however, be situations when education and formal training was completed after an educational break during which gainful employment was pursued. The experience gained during the educational break may be credited if it meets the definition of creditable experience for the particular grade of the position as defined in paragraph 7a, b, or c. Less than full-time experience is creditable on an hour-for-hour basis; experience gained as a volunteer, while selfemployed, and while employed in more than one position during the same timeframe is creditable if it meets the definition of creditable experience for the position to be filled. 8 AE Pam 690-70 ● 29 Aug 06

24. WAIVER OF QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS A waiver of qualification requirements may be considered if the prerequisites in this paragraph are met. The request must be initiated by the selecting official, address the requirements of subparagraphs b and c below, and be forwarded to the CPOC. The CPOC will address the requirement in subparagraph a below and send the request and a recommendation for approval or disapproval to the USAREUR G1 (AEAGACL) for review and decision. a. Extensive internal and external recruitment efforts failed to produce the type of candidate who meets the qualification requirements for the position and the requisite knowledge, abilities, and skills to successfully perform in the position. b. Efforts to establish a trainee position with an individual development plan for an employee to acquire necessary skills and qualification during a prescribed training period were unsuccessful. c. Justification is provided showing that the unqualified candidate possesses the potential for advancement to a level of greater responsibilities based on demonstrated job performance and qualifying experience.
