This may be a crazy question but I seen a few post that said since covid they aren’t making anyone do PT test or PT at school. Are thet doing PT at airborne school? I switched units to an airborne slot have been in my new guard unit for 5 months and I have a good PT on record. I just spoke to the retention NCO and re-enlisted yesterday in the guard for 6more years. So I am qualified. I can pass my pt test. Someone from my unit said I have to take a pt test before I can go. Do I have to take the test cause I thought they was exempt? I am just wondering are they testing at schools?

You have to take a PT test always before you go to Airborne school and your unit has to verify that you can run 5 miles in under 45 minutes and the flexed arm hang.

I know they was still doing the flex arm hang but I was reading wasn’t doing anything else.

SGT Eric Davis look on the ARTB website for the entry requirements. I think your question is that you believe because the Army isn't doing APFT that means ARTB isn't. A school can set whatever entrance requirements they determine to be necessary such as pull-ups, bomb suit tests, runs, rucks, APFTs, or nomenclature exams.

Show up there expecting to do all of it and call it a day. If you're physically fit and ready to meet the requirements for the school, it shouldn't matter if they are or aren't doing PT at Airborne school or not.
