All trooper trainee applicants are required to pass the Department’s physical readiness test in order to continue in the application process.
The minimum standard for all applicants and new recruits is passing the physical readiness test at the 50 percentile according to their age and gender.
The application process is very competitive and only the top qualified applicants will be accepted to the Department’s recruit school. The applicant’s physical fitness score plays an important role in their overall ranking. Applicants scoring at the minimum 50 percentile on their physical readiness test are less likely to have a high enough overall ranking score to continue in the application process.
All new recruits accepted to attend a recruit school must pass the entrance physical readiness test on the Concept2 Rower at the 50 percentile according to their age and gender on the first day of recruit school. New recruits not passing the entrance physical readiness test on the Concept2 Rower at the minimum requirement will have their conditional job offer rescinded and will be sent home. Candidates sent home due to not passing the entrance physical readiness test or who resign from a recruit school will be required to reapply and complete the application process again if the applicant wishes to attend a future recruit school.
