NTN Tests Physical Abilities Tests for Law Enforcement and Corrections The Physical Abilities Test (PAT) includes four components: push-ups, sit-ups, 300 meter run and 1.5 mile run. We strongly encourage candidates complete all four components of the test, even if one department may not require a specific event. Each department sets their own passing points based off their specific state and jurisdiction. Not all departments accept re-test PAT results. Some departments require 6 months between submitting PAT results. Check the department requirements on this site or check with the departments you are applying to. Candidates must meet the requirements of the job at the time of scheduling their exam. Currently, all of our jobs posted require an applicant to be at least 18 years of age.
