Physical Fitness Standards

Physical fitness is a key component in the development of an Air Force officer and should never be taken lightly. The Physical Fitness Test (PFT) consists of sit-ups, push-ups, a 1.5-mile run, and your abdominal measurement. It comprises the mandatory physical fitness standards required by AFROTC to:

  1. Activate or retain an AFROTC scholarship and
  2. Meet the POC Selection Program (PSP) Board, attend Field Training (FT), successfully complete FT and remain in good standing as a Professional Officer Course (POC) cadet through commissioning.
