Notwithstanding the first paragraph, a public servant whose position is upgraded may be promoted otherwise than through a qualification process, according to the rules determined by the Conseil du trésor by regulation, if he meets the conditions of eligibility to the class of positions so upgraded and if he is declared qualified by the chairman of the Conseil du trésor.
A public servant may also be promoted after the public servant’s qualifications have been assessed as part of a human resources development program approved for that purpose by the Conseil du trésor.
