Want to practice for the Physical Agility Test?
We will be hosting practice sessions prior to the testing date. Applicants may practice different parts of the Physical Agility Test. Academy Staff will be present to assist with techniques in completing the different components of the test. It is strongly recommended that you attend a practice session if you have never completed the P.O.S.T. Physical Agility Test.
Practice Sessions will be held at the Public Safety Training Center on the grinder at 184 Santar Place (where the fire tower is located).
*Next practice session will be held in Summer 2014. Exact dates to be announced in Spring 2014.
