Who is eligible for the FORCE Rewards Program?
All CAF personnel are eligible to earn a FORCE Reward. Only the first FORCE Evaluation completed during the calendar year will be eligible for a reward.
How does it work?
Based on the results of over 109,000 FORCE Evaluations performed between 1 Apr 2016 and 31 Mar 2018, thresholds were created to ensure 50% of the CAF personnel could achieve an Incentive level. Approximately 34% could achieve Bronze, 14% Silver, 2% Gold and 0.1% Platinum.
Age and sex-specific scoring tables were updated on 1 January 2019 for each of the four (4) FORCE components to ensure a fair distribution of points. These four (4) components, each scored out of 100, are combined to make up the Operational Fitness, which is scored out of a total of 400 points.
Health-Related Fitness is scored on a 100-point scale, where predicted VO2 max (cardiovascular endurance estimated from the Intermittent Loaded Shuttles task, the measurement of your Waist Circumference and your sex) accounts for 75 points and waist circumference accounts for the remaining 25 points.
The FORCE Fitness Profile is a tool that provides you with feedback on your current level of Health-Related Fitness and Operational Readiness. This tool, along with the FORCE Fitness Profile Calculator, can be used to help you understand your current fitness level in order to help you prepare for your next FORCE Evaluation.
