The 700-hour program provides for temporary limited appointment of individuals with disabilities, not to exceed 700 hours. An individual is placed on a 700-hour list if certified by a counselor in the Rehabilitation Division of the Department of Employment, Training & Rehabilitation and if he or she meets the minimum qualifications for a position.
A 700-hour appointment may be converted to a regular appointment before the end of the 700 hours, subject to a trial or probationary period. If an employee is converted to a regular appointment, the employee's hours in the position as a 700-hour appointment are counted towards his or her completion of a trial or probationary period.

700-HOUR LIST CERTIFIED
Although hiring of an eligible 700-hour candidate is not mandatory, the usage of a 700-hour list must be documented and/or coded in NVAPPS prior to the issuance of another list. If a 700-hour candidate is not selected, the option "Do you need further assistance from DHRM to fill this position?" must be checked as "Yes" when submitting the certified list.
