Reference: The Air Force Exemption policy for the battle field airman PT test is currently published on the AFPC website
BLUF: From Now until Dec 2019 the AF has granted an exemption to the standard portions of the AF PT Test (Pushup/Situp/Run)
Effective immediately, the Air Force has granted a temporary exemption to the aerobic, push-up and sit-up components of the standard Air Force fitness assessment until Dec.1, 2019, for Airmen in the following codes:
- Combat Control (1C2X1)
- Combat Rescue Officer (13DX)
- Pararescue (1T2X1)
- Special Tactics Officer (13CX)
- Survival Evasion Resistance Escape (1T0X1)
- Special Operations Weather Officer (15WXH)
- Special Operations Weather Technician (1W0X2)
These exemptions are contingent upon each career field manager resuming and continuing development and validation of their new AFSC-specific, operationally specific/relevant fitness assessments.
Airmen in these AFSCs will continue to be exempt from the standard fitness assessment, but are still required to complete the abdominal circumference component in addition to their occupational AFSC-specific fitness assessment annually, conducted by a certified physical training leader.
The Air Force Fitness Management System is only postured to manage the standard fitness assessment; therefore, exempted components will be individually marked as “Exempt” and PTLs will input the AC measurement to satisfy the annual requirement. They will also complete AF Form 4446, Air Force Fitness Assessment Scorecard, to reflect exemptions in applicable components and the AC measurement and maintain the form in accordance with AFI 36-2905, Fitness Program. Each CFM will track and maintain all other data related to the Battlefield Airman AFSC-specific fitness tests.
