About the Edition

This study focused on the appropriateness of the Navy"s physical readiness test (PRT), particularly as it applies to surface warfare officers (SWOs). Physical requirements of fleet SWOs were addressed through two separate surveys and an extensive literature review. Differences in fleet PRT requirements and physical requirements set fourth by SWO accessions sources were also examined. Further review of literature allowed for evaluation of the individual components that currently comprise the PRT, in addition to possible alternatives. Methods of body fat measurement were also presented. Finally, situations which lead to difficulties in the administration of the PRT were assessed, including deployments, scoring of the PRT, medical waivers, and attitudes and perceptions of Navy members concerning the PRT. Based on information obtained in these areas, recommendations were made for changes in accession requirements, PRT component, and PRT administration.
