Elements of the test battery to be used for physical fitness screening are
described below. Although these elements may not be directly representative
of essential job functions to be performed by an entry-level correction officer,
such elements do measure the candidate’s physiological capacity to learn
and perform the essential job functions. The minimum scores for employment
as an entry-level correction officer as set forth below represent the 40th
percentile of fitness. If a candidate does not successfully score to the
required percentile of fitness for each of the elements of the test battery,
the candidate shall not be deemed to have successfully completed the
physical fitness-screening test. Nothing herein shall preclude an
administrator of such screening test from substituting an element
of the test battery, which such administrator has determined and
validated to accurately assess the candidate’s physiological capacity
to learn and perform essential job functions. The 90-yard run shall
only be administered to such individuals who have successfully
completed each of the other three elements of the test battery
(sit-up, vertical jump and push-up).
A candidate must compete in and qualify in all four events to be determined
as having passed this test. The test must be administered in the following
sequence. Failure in one event will prohibit further testing.
Sit-up Muscular endurance (core body)
The score indicated below is the number of bent-leg sit-ups performed in one minute.
Vertical Jump Jumping or Explosive Power
The score indicated below is calculated in inches.
Push-Up Muscular endurance (upper body)
The score below is the maximum number of full body repetitions that
a candidate must complete without breaks in one minute.
90 Yard Run Speed
The score indicated below is calculated in seconds.
This score represents a maximum time allowance for all candidates,
but is subject to change pending ongoing validation studies.
