Physical Training Test

The Physical Training Test is an evaluation based on the recommendation of the Cooper's Institute in terms of absolute standards (same job = same standard).  These standards are reflective of the minimum fitness level an individual must possess to perform their job regardless of their age or gender. 

  • The following events will comprise the assessment:
  • 300 Meter Sprint - 90  seconds or faster  
  • Bench Press -  1 repetition, 67% of body weight, using free weights     
  • Push Ups -  (#) 21, no time limit, only hands and feet touch the ground, rest in up position  
  • Sit Ups -  (#) 30 in one minute, one minute time limit, hands interlocked behind the head, rest in up position only
