Physical Fitness Qualification

Physical Fitness Qualification (PFQ)

  • PFQ guidelines:
    1. In order to better prepare for the exam and the physical demands of the academy, you are encouraged to attend the Candidate Workout Program and complete the Physical Fitness Qualifier (PFQ). Your score on the PFQ is advisory. You must complete the PFQ at least once prior to appointment. You are welcome to retake the PFQ as many times as you like, and the score is valid for 12 months. If you score less than a 50 on the PFQ, you are strongly encouraged to attend Candidate Workout Program more regularly and retake the PFQ.

    2. The PFQ consists of four events:
      • 1) Maximum push-ups in one minute
      • 2) 300-meter sprint
      • 3) Maximum sit-ups in one minute
