In accordance with Article 21 of the Civil Service Examinations Act, one has to accomplish the open competitive examination before turning out to be a civil servant. After having passed examinations held by the country, all civil servants at different levels are required to receive training (including Basic Training and On-the-job Training) according to their categories and types. Those who have completed the training with satisfactory performance will be issued certificates and being officially employed as a civil servant.

The Civil Service Examination is the major channel of selecting civil service talents. However, although they have passed the examination, there are gaps between government operations and their general knowledge, professional knowledge and skills. Therefore, the Basic training is conducted to nurture new-entries with necessary basic concepts, integrity and service attitude, as well as enrich their basic administrative knowledge and capabilities for future positions.
