The RCMP is using a new fitness test will help ensure RCMP officers have the ability to perform the physical demands of police work. While the Physical Abilities Requirement Evaluation — commonly known as the PARE — has served the RCMP for decades, the new police fitness test is designed to better reflect the realities of the job.
As an applicant, it is extremely important for you to maintain and/or improve your fitness level throughout the application process to ensure your success both at training and in your career as a police officer.
There are four assessments to measure fitness for RCMP duty. Each assessment replicates common, essential, physically demanding tasks that may occur in policing.
- Assessment 1: Foot pursuit
- Assessment 2: Physical control
- Assessment 3: Emergency assistance
- Assessment 4: High priority tasks
The BC RCMP Proactive Recruiting unit will be offering practice PFA sessions on a regular basis. Applicants are encouraged to register and attend these sessions when possible. Although, practice sessions are not mandatory or a requirement for applicant, practising the PFA before starting at Depot will help applicants prepare for the rigors of training and policing.
