    When the doc signs off on it, you are good to go.

    Mine was 52 when I did my physical for academy and doc didn't bat an eye.

    I'm a distance runner and have a slower heart rate due to that fact. I wouldn't waste your time worrying.
    Case in point.

    "Sinus bradycardia" is a descriptor. Average heart rates for humans are just that...average.
    Yes, they look at ranges and if you are GREATLY outside the norm, then they will look into it.

    Next time drink an espresso with a red bull chaser before your medical. That will bump you up a notch.

    Thanks guys. I kind of felt like is was no big deal.

    I'm not sure how all the medical clearances are handled. Apparently, my current department leaves the "clearing" up to the physician associated with the academy. The medical paperwork has yet to be sent to him/her.

    Slow Heart Rate And The Academy

    I have recently been selected to attend the police academy as a sponsored recruit by my current department while serving as a reserve deputy. This academy will render me POST certified. It's been a long time coming to even make it to this point.

    Now, here is the issue. I was required to have a physical in order to complete the application to the academy itself. Everything seemed squared away until I noticed a remark near the EKG section of the physical results. Evidently, I have a slow heart rate that is also known as sinus bradycardia. My heart rate was 59 bpm. Apparently, the average is between 60-100. It seems very common, based on my brief research, that a slower heart rate is normal in adults that stay active and workout regularly. I work out in some capacity between 4-5 days per week.

    Am I worrying over nothing, or will I be rejected for this? Do any of you have first hand experience or have any insight into this situation? It's hard to stomach that something like this may keep me from taking this step toward my ultimate goal of being employed full time as a law enforcement officer.

    Thanks for listening to my ramblings.
