Physical Readiness Test (PRT)

Physical Readiness Test (PRT)

As the PRT season nears, please see the following resources to help you maximize your cadets’ success. Recall the PRT is required for both promotion and attendance at boot camp or other training.

Every unit should be conducting the PRT in April-May and again in October-November of each calendar year.  If you are not please adjust your training schedule accordingly.

Your primary resource is the NSCC Physical Fitness Handbook, available at: http://homeport.seacadets.org/display/Manuals/Physical+Readiness+Manual
In addition, the Navy just released some helpful web videos on how to do curl-ups/push-ups.  These are the same as NSCC PRT requirements, so recommend you pass to your PT coordinators.
