Hey Everyone. This video is a review of everything that is important about the testing site for the ACFT and ACFT Equipment as well. It begins with the basics of the testing site, then goes on about the required test equipment, all the important stuff that is crucial for the testing site and also about the rules for clothing and accessories for the candidates.  

For everything to run smoothly, the test OIC or NCOIC is responsible to inspect and validate the testing site. Also, their job is to determine the number of testing lanes or graders based on the number of soldiers to be tested and the time available to test.

Surface

Speaking of the testing site itself, the ACFT requires a soft, flat and dry test area. The area surface should be 40 by 40 meters on grass or artificial turf. The surface should be about half of a soccer or football field. And also, the surface should be free of any significant hazards. Another important thing for the testing site is to have an area for preparation drill, which should be separated from the test area.

When the course is performed indoors, the surface must be artificial turf only. Surfaces made of wood or similar material are not allowed because they have an impact on the speed of the Spint-Drag-Carry event. If the outdoor conditions are not optimal, indoor running track can be used for the two mile run.

ACFT Supplemental Equipment (1)

For conducting the test or the preparations, you will need appropriate equipment. For conducting the 16 lane testing set up you will need:

  • 8 wooden or PVC marking sticks,
  • 70 marking cones,
  • 20 stopwatches,
  •  20 clip boards,  
  • 70 half round markers and
  • 18 pieces of 50 meter take measures,

What to wear

There are rules for the clothing and the equipment of the candidates as well. The uniform for the ACFT is the army physical fitness uniform as described in AR 670-1. Other than that, any article of clothing that is not prescribed as a component in this uniform is not authorized for wearing during the ACFT.

As for equipment of the candidates, devices such as weight-lifting belts, gloves or wraps are not permitted because they can lead to unfair advantage during the testing. The wearing of nasal strips, back braces, elastic bandages, compression socks and braces is forbidden, unless they are prescribed as part of a soldier’s medical profile.

Watches and Trackers

Speaking of equipment that is allowed during testing, time measuring devices or biometric measuring devices such as watches, heart rate monitors, step counters and fitness trackers are authorized during the ACFT. However, these devices cannot be used as relevant for official measurement of the time for the 2 mile run and sprint-drag-carry events

Other than this, wearing of other electronic devices such as music players, radios and cell phones is forbidden.

Wearing gloves In order to protect the hands and for improved safety is allowed with the AR 670-1 anytime during the event.
