Physical Assessment | Police Academy | Kent State University

Physical Assessment

Beginning the very first week of the Academy, you will receive a physical assessment.  The initial assessment will give the physical conditioning instructors important information to help them fulfill their primary goal.  They are committed to ensuring that all cadets are able to pass the State of Ohio mandated  physical fitness assessment. 

A physical fitness test is administered by an OPOTC official at the completion of training. 

Each cadet is required to pass this test.   The test consists of a timed 1.5-mile run, timed sit-ups and timed push-ups (based upon uniform standards according to age and gender).
