FORCE Evaluation

FORCE Evaluation


FORCE Evaluation

The FORCE Evaluation is a reflection of the CAF minimal physical employment standard related to common defence and security duties known as the Universality of Service principle.
Some trades within the CAF require higher levels of fitness or operational readiness, but the minimum standards for the FORCE Evaluation are meant to reflect the baseline CAF physical employment standard that everyone must meet.
The FORCE Evaluation is designed to capture the movement patterns, energy systems, and muscle groups recruited in the performance of the Common Military Task Fitness Evaluation (CMTFE).

All pertinent information with regards to registration of the FORCE Evaluation will be managed locally. PSP fitness staff and your local chain of command will provide the necessary information and address questions.

FORCE Rewards Program 
The FORCE Rewards Program is designed to recognize Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) personnel who achieve high levels of health-related fitness and operational readiness on their FORCE Fitness Profile, as part of their annual FORCE Evaluation.
