Process Server Exam

The first Georgia Certified Process Server (GCPS) certification examination was administered May 3, 2012, at the Administrative Office of the Courts office in Atlanta.  A total of 53 process servers took the exam; fifty-one passed the exam and have received certificates.  The exam was developed by a committee of process servers and AOC staff. An outside company reviewed the test questions and determined them to be fair and reasonable.  A score of 71% is required to pass the exam.
 
To be eligible to take the certification exam, the applicant must have completed a 12-hr. training program given by GAPPS – the Georgia Association of Professional Process Servers.  The AOC is working closely with GAPPS and the Georgia Sheriffs Association to make this program a success.  GAPPS also offered an additional study session the night before the first exam.   

Currently, GAPPs is the only training provider that has been approved by the Judicial Council; however, other providers can be approved to conduct training.
