Ref: 3350-1 Op LASER 20-01 (P3 Ops & Plan)
In order for PSP Fitness and Sports at 8 Wing CFB Trenton to remain supportive to the objectives of readiness and preservation of the FORCE, PSP will offer FORCE Evaluations to only CAF personnel who are under the following situations;
a) deployment; b) recruiting and training directly supporting CAF FORCE Generation (Eg. CFLRS & RMCC/CMR); and c) substantive promotion of a CAF member.
a.CAF personnel will not demonstrate any signs and symptoms of illness, especially for COVID-19;
b.CAF personnel will be asked to go wash their hands prior to the start of the evaluation and as well respect social distancing amongst one another. Please bring a clean towel which is to be used to wipe sweat in order to avoid hand contact with the face;
c.The waist circumference will not be measured. This is in response to the direction of the Government of Canada of social distancing guidelines; and
d.CAF members will not receive a debrief after the evaluation given the inability to display the FORCE Fitness Profile and to honour the practice of social distancing.
Note: A FORCE Evaluation with no waist circumference will not allow CAF personnel to be plotted on the Fitness Profile. It will also prevent CAF personnel eligibility to the FORCE Rewards program. Therefore, the FORCE Evaluation will only indicate if this member is operationally deployable/employable. It will be indicated as met standard or did not meet standard in Guardian Human Resources management system.
