Physical Standards

Applicants must come prepared to participate in all components of the physical fitness assessment on the first day of training.  Those trainees who fail to meet the entry standards may be denied entry into the Basic Course.

The exit level physical fitness test is conducted during the last week of the Basic Course. If a trainee fails any of the components, then that officer will be afforded a retest at the agency’s written request. If the trainee fails the retest, then the agency head must petition the LETB for a third (and final) attempt.

Trainees who are injured during basic training and are unable to complete testing at exit must successfully complete testing at a later date when approved by their physician. A graduation certificate cannot be earned until this is accomplished.

 Details of the physical training requirements can be found here.
