    Here is the link to the academy in Tennessee that I plan on attending later this year. scroll down to the bottom of the page and hit next to navigate through the requirements. It lists some Tennessee P.O.S.T. standards, curriculum of the academy, physical requirements, etc. etc. I would imagine the physical requirements at this academy would be nearly identical to the academy in Greeneville, TN, or the TLETA in Donnelson.

      I went to the academy hosted by Walters State in Greeneville, TN. The bench press was cut out of the PT requirements recently. We had to do:

      Max pushups in one minute
      Max situps in one minute
      Mile and a half run
      300 meter sprint
      Illinois Agility Run
      Sit and Reach Measurement

      I may be missing something but that's all I can remember right now. To meet POST standards, you also have to complete the obstacle course. But it's not that difficult for anyone in reasonably good shape. We had a couple porkers in my class that made it alright.

        If you can manage the daily PT you will pass the tests. The only ones not to pass the obstacle course in my class were females who couldn't drag the dummy. Don't go into the academy not doing anything to prepare yourself.
        Where'd you learn that, Cheech? Drug school?

            Like someone said earlier, prepare yourself before you go in. You will be happy you did.
