Members attending the Royal Military College of Canada (RMC) must pass the RMC Physical Performance Test (RMC PPT), in addition to the FORCE Evaluation.
The RMC PPT has been established to ensure OCdts have the physical fitness required for their rigorous military training, while attending a military education institution.
This fitness evaluation is not based on an occupational requirement but rather is part of the college standard.
The RMC PPT consist of six test items:
a. 2.4km Run;
b. Seated Medicine Ball Toss (SMBT);
c. Standing Long Jump (SLJ);
d. Isometric Mid-thigh Pull (IMTP);
e. Illinois Agility Run (IAR); and
f. Flexed Arm Hang (FAH)
The maximum score in each test item is 100 points. The SMBT and the SLJ are averaged to make a “Power” score of 100. Each other component is out of 100 for a total of 500 possible points.
Participants must obtain at least 50 points for the 2.4km run and 35 points in the remaining four test items. Additionally, participants must obtain a total of 250 points to achieve the minimum standard.
