The Municipal Police Training Committee’s Policy requires all Physical Ability Tests expire after a period of six-months; they must be valid on the start date of an academy.
The PAT is scheduled by the hiring or sponsoring department's training officer or designee through the Human Resources Division (HRD); they will not coordinate with the candidate.
