Semi-Annual Fitness Tests



Henderson Hall has resumed screening Marines for assignment to BCP.  All Marines previously identified outside of height and weight standards in 2020 must report to the Battalion S3 NLT 1600 Wednesday 30 September to complete a BCE. 

CPTRs are NOT authorized to conduct BCE measurements but ARE authorized to conduct semi-annual height & weight for their respective work section.  Marine’s requiring height and weight for re-enlistment must conduct their weigh-in at the Battalion S3 Office: 703-693-8917 / 9063. 

CFTs are authorized to be conducted in accordance with MARADMIN 513/20.  Per the MARADMIN and Human Performance Office, TECOM “Marines being evaluated during physical testing do not need to wear a face mask unless they choose to do so. However, Marines assisting in events that require a partner will wear a face mask”.   

Remember, to complete a CFT for score, a Marine must have a current PHA.

Below is the revised CFT schedule to ensure all Marines have adequate opportunity and access to a CFT in CY20.  Staff sections are highly encouraged to utilize their respective CPTRs to conduct CFTs. The S3 has a limited number of CFT kits that may be loaned out for a short time.

All CFTs will be conducted at the Joint Base Myer – Henderson hall LZ located adjacent to the CDC and Old Post Chapel.
