Candidate Filing System

The Candidate Committee Electronic Filing Form must be filed to obtain a username and password to log-in to the CFS.

CFS E-Learning Videos (Coming Soon)

The CFS E-Learning Videos have been created to supplement the CFS Manual to help you learn and use the CFS.  The section references below and in the videos cross-reference the table of contents in the CFS Manual. The videos and the manual can be used simultaneously or by themselves, it’s really up to you.  The Commission feels, however, that viewing the short videos by specific subject matters can speed up your learning by giving you a visual of how certain tasks are done in the CFS.
