the Physical Ability Assessment is a requirement for
becoming a police officer in
the State of Connecticut. The Physical Ability Assessment,
a standardized test used by all Connecticut Police
Departments, follows standards set forth by the Police
Officer Standards and Training Council of the State of
Connecticut. Applicants must meet the standard for all
four components to pass the assessment.
applicants who take the Physical Ability Assessment with
C.H.I.P. have a definite advantage over the
competition. When an applicant successfully completes
the physical ability test, he or she will receive a C.H.I.P.
Card. The C.H.I.P. Card is valid for six months from
the original assessment date and allows a recruit to apply
for a job with any participating
C.H.I.P. police department, without taking the Physical Ability Assessment
again. C.H.I.P. can not guarantee the number of job
postings by participating departments within any six month
