        No. CPD uses its own test. POST is what a lot of the suburbs use. It sucks. It's a VERY easy test, but unless you score in the high 90's, don't expect to be any where in the top 100. Specially in a place like Joliet where easily 500+ are going to test for.

          Has anyone taken a power test at Joliet Junior College? How strict are they with the sit-ups?

            if you mean in regards to form, you have to keep your fingers interlocked behind your head and make sure your elbows have to touch your knees. if you mean in regards to being short one or two? they will disqualify you if you do not meet the requirements.

              Yes. Absolutely true. As long as your fingers stay interlocked, elbows touch knees, back touches the mat, you're good. I've taken their power test, was short one sit up and they failed me, which is to be expected. However, they offered me to go for a run (since I passed sit-and-reach and a bench press), and then to reschedule sit ups only for a later date. I cant remember if that retake was at no charge or not.

                  From what you explained in CPD 2016 thread, the sit ups form/counting is just the same over at JJC. First you do sit-and-reach, then off to a pin machine. Then they will walk you out to a hallway and have you pair with someone. He/she will hold your feet. You can take your time to start. Once you go up they'll start the clock. The instructor will count out loud. After that you go outside on a track. It's six laps. Be careful on that track, it was kinda run down. Few places had some gravel on it, so it's easy to slip if you loose your traction. It might have been cleaned/repaired. I took JJC test in April last year. But something to be aware. You'll be fine. Good luck buddy.

                      Quick update about power testing at JJC
                      I took the power test 10/15/16 and passed. They still use the pin machine for the bench press, which is lighter than free weights. They required that your elbows be always pointing forwards for the sit-ups. During the run, they let you listen to music if you want to. The track was under construction so we had to run on the road next to the parking lot. We had to do five laps around. The whole power test was easy. It was just seven people including myself and we all passed. We were issued POWER cards right after the run.

                          You'd think with this test coming up, and the advertisement Joliet is doing this thread would have more than one page...

                              I normally use these threads to guage how many people plan on testing, and using that method, which is in no way scientific, yes I will apply...as it seems not very many people intend to.
