The tests are on the North Olympic Peninsula for the first time.
The change was made in response to a request from Sheriff Bill Benedict.
National Testing Network, the county's law enforcement test administrator, has established a testing site at the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St.
This is an interim site until arrangements to move the testing to Peninsula College are finalized.
On July 9, National Testing Network will simultaneously test for entry-level deputy sheriff and adult corrections deputy positions in separate rooms at Vern Burton Community Center.
The written test will be at 9 a.m., and the physical abilities test will follow at 1 p.m. at Port Angeles High School's track.
The test is open to those 21 years and older.
Candidates who successfully complete the testing and application review processes will be interviewed by the sheriff's office when a vacancy occurs.
They will then be placed on an employment list for the position for which they have tested for one year, ranked in the order of their overall score.
The testing process is continuous, so ranking on the list may change.
National Testing Network anticipates it will administer testing for the two positions in Port Angeles at least quarterly and possibly even more frequently in the future if participation in the testing warrants it.
