The commission shall certify the three eligibles who have received the highest ranking on an open competitive or promotional list against the first provisional or vacancy.  For each additional provisional or vacancy against whom a certification is issued at that time, the commission shall certify the next ranked eligible.  If more than one eligible has the same score, the tie shall not be broken and they shall have the same rank.  If three or more eligibles can be certified as the result of the ranking without resorting to all three highest scores, only those eligibles shall be so certified.

A certification that contains the names of at least three interested eligibles shall be complete and a regular appointment shall be made from among those eligibles.  An eligible on an incomplete list shall be entitled to a provisional appointment if a permanent appointment is not made.

Eligibles on any type of reemployment list shall be certified and appointed in the order of their ranking and the certification shall not be considered incomplete.
