Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) FM 21-20 / TC 3-22.20 Training Info

14-12 Permanent Profiles

Permanent Profiles
A permanently profiled soldier is given a physical training program by the profiling officer using the positive profile form DA 3349 (see Appendix B). The profiling officer gives the unit’s commander a list of physical activities that are suitable for the profiled soldier. He also indicates the events and/or alternate aerobic event that the soldier will do on the APFT. This recommendation, made after consultation with the profiled soldier, should address the soldier’s abilities and preference and the equipment available. (See DA Form 3349, Physical Profile, referenced in AR 40-501.)

The profiled soldier must perform all the regular APFT events his medical profile permits. Each soldier must earn at least 60 points on the regular events to receive a “go.” He must also complete the alternate event in a time equal to or less than the one listed for his age group. For example, a soldier whose profile forbids only running will do the push-up and sit-up events and an alternate aerobic event. He must get at least a minimum passing score on each event to earn a “go” for the test. A soldier whose profile prevents two or more APFT events must complete the 2-mile run or an alternate aerobic event to earn a “go” on the test. Soldiers who cannot do any of the aerobic events due to a profile cannot be tested. Such information will be recorded in their official military record.

The standards for alternate events are listed in Figure 14-9. Scoring for all alternate events is on a go/no go basis. Soldiers who do push-up and sit-up events but who take an alternate aerobic event are not awarded promotion points for APFT performance.

    what is the AR regarding scoring for permanent profiles for the APFT?

  • SFC Doxstader

    You simply receive a “go” for the event and the grader writes “pass” on the bottom of the DA 705. There are points given for the alternate event.

  • SGT Grimes

    If you are going for promotion points: EX: Profile no running, and no sit ups. There is no alternate for sit ups, walking for run.

    PU 90 pts
    SU 60 pts (automatic because of profile)
    Walk 75 pts
    add the points from PU & SU(90+60=150)
    divide the total by 2 (150/2 = 75)
    so your PT score would be 225
