What Are The Standards?

Application Requirements
The actual performance requirement for each test is based upon norms for a national population sample. The requirements are as follows:
  • The applicant must pass every test.
  • The required performance to pass each test is based upon age (decade) and sex. While the absolute performance is different for the 8 categories, the relative level of effort is identical for each age and sex group. All recruits are being required to meet the same percentile range in terms of their respective age/sex group. The performance requirement is that level of physical performance that approximates the 40th percentile for each age and sex group.
