On April 2, 2014, the Police Training Commission (PTC) adopted psychological and physical fitness standards which must be successfully met by potential trainees prior to orientation day for the basic course to which the potential trainee seeks admission. The pre-academy requirements are applicable to potential trainees who seek admission to any of the following basic courses that begin on or after January 1, 2015:

  • Basic Course for Police Officers (including Alternate Route)
  • Basic Course for Special Law Enforcement Officers Class II
  • Basic Course for State Corrections Officers
  • Basic Course for County Corrections Officers
  • Basic Course for Investigators
  • Basic Course for Juvenile Corrections Officers
  • Basic Course for Juvenile Parole Officers

To successfully pass the physical fitness test, the potential trainee must complete:

  • A 300 meter run in 70.1 seconds or less
  • 24 push-ups in 1 minute or less
  • A vertical jump of 15 inches or more
  • 28 sit-ups in 1 minute or less
  • A 1.5 mile run in 15.55 minutes or less

The failure of a potential trainee to successfully complete and pass the psychological and physical fitness pre-acadmemy entrance requirements set forth herein may not be appealed to the Police Training Commission. (NO PASS. NO APPEAL. YOU ARE DONE)

Potential trainees are encouraged to prepare themselves for the pre-academy physical fitness testing described herein, since successful completion of the testing is a prerequisite for admission to the basic courses.
