      The requirements have changed now.

      I just spoke with HR - medical unit today.

      My fitness test expires 7/24...so if I don't get hired before then...I have to redo with stricter requirements:
      PART ONE:
      Push-Up Test
      A timed test that requires you to complete as many proper form push-ups as you can in 60 seconds. The depth of the push-ups will be measured using a foam block. If you need to rest between push-ups, it must be taken in the “up position.” The Test Administrator will observe your form throughout the test and will count aloud each push-up that is performed correctly.

      Side Step Test
      A timed test that requires you to complete as many outside line touches and centerline crosses as possible in ten seconds. You will be given two trials and the highest number will be recorded.

      Sit-Up Test
      A timed test that requires you to complete as many proper form sit-ups as you can in 60 seconds. If you need to rest between sit-ups, it must be taken in the “up position.” The Test Administrator will observe your form
      throughout the test and will count aloud each sit-up that is performed correctly.

      Lift/Lower Test
      A timed test that requires you to complete eight lift/lower cycles as quickly as possible. A lift/lower cycle consists of lifting a 50-pound crate with weights from the floor to a 30-inch high table. A full cycle is counted
      when the crate has been returned to the floor. While speed is a requirement, good lifting posture and careful handling of the crate should be used.

      PART Two:
      Step Test
      A timed test that requires you to step up and down on a 12-inch high platform at a rate of 120 steps per minute for five minutes. An audio CD containing a constant beat and verbal cues will be used to maintain cadence.

      At the same time, FLETC requirements are now as follows (if you arrive after Oct. 1st i believe): To graduation from the Academy you must be able to successfully meet the Fitness Graduation Standards:
      • 1.5 Mile Run - 15 minutes or less
      • Sit and Reach – 12.5 inches
      • Push-ups – 24 in one minute
      • 220 Yard Run – 45 seconds or less

      • Wow, been here at FLETC not to long, and I under stand why other Agency's laugh at CBP here! For those of you heading out here in the future, a simple advice, stay away from the jelly donuts an try not to look like you've never left your couch. That way people won't look at you with the look of "how did this fat slob get hired" just some advise...:-)

              • I got a letter today. Thinking it was from CBP but when I opened it, it says "CHP". I just passed the written exam.

                Now, does anybody here think that MHC will call the people in TSU for a 8/3 EOD??

                Wishful thinking....

                    A good way for applicants to avoid "being laughed at" is to show up at a point far above CBP's minimum standards. If you get yourself to the point you can do the 1.5 mile run in 10 or even 12 minutes, if you can pound out 100, 80 or even 60 push-ups, sit-ups, and complete 10 chin-ups...you get to FLETC in as good of shape as most people there.

                    It's shooting for a 15 minute 1.5 and all the rest of the minimalist approach that gets you there in the "fat slob" bracket.

                    • Beecy,

                      If you have to retake or PFT after 07/01/2009 as I've read it you have to score better than 80, (Push Ups, Sit Ups, Lift Lower). See page 11 for the score card. If I copy and paste it comes out jumbled on my post.

                      http://www.cbp.gov/linkhandler/cgov/...po_fitness.pdf

                      Good luck.

                        Jeez. I could probably get to 50-60 push-ups, but the running is a bastard. I'm deffinately getting better, running 3 times a week 2 or 2.5 miles a shot, but 12 mins seems a long way off. I'm around or under 20 mins for 2 miles as it is. I can do 15 chin-ups, 12 pull-ups and 25 sit-ups. I don't mind the wait, maybe I'll get there in decent shape.

                        • Hey Beecy

                          On the last page I read the standard for passing the fitness test at FLETC,
                          1.5 run under 15minutes, 24 push-up in one minute...etc etc
                          Would those passing requirements be any different for females or the same as you posted? Is there a pull-up test?

                            Keep plugging away at it.

                            One thing you really should work on...your run distance.

                            Running 2.5 miles won't prepare you for the instructors who will run you 5 miles...or more. Work on running 5 miles outdoors under 50 minutes and you should do OK. Once you get in a pack of academy-mates and get motivated to finish amongst the top of your class, you'll pick up some pace.

                            12 minutes is a guideline; it puts you roughly slightly ahead of the average time the "average" male runs the 1.5 mile. 10 minute miles are rather poor.

                              Well women do not get any special treatment as far as the pass/fail portions of fletc. This includes p.t., d.t., a.t., firearms along with the practical exams and written tests.
