Wanted to start a new thread on Senior ICA Officer but since I see some SO posts here, think I'll just tag on.

Unlike SAF, SPF or SCDF which clearly states PES A or B, I notice ICA simply says "physically fit". Which I feel is very vague and can mean many things.

I guess my main question is, does a ICA SO have to undergo IPPT or some fitness test? I am assuming not because if IPPT is required then why didn't they stated PES A or B for males when its obvious that PES C don't take IPPT.

For myself, it took 4 days after application to get a reply and go for 1st interview. Subsequently, another 4 days to hear replies to go for 2nd interview. After 1 week, was told to do medical checkup. Total waiting time 1 month.

Currently ICA officers are not under the Uniform Scheme. Therefore IPPT is not a requirement at the moment. However no guarantees it will remain that way throughout.

Physically fit does not refer so much to whether you can pass your IPPT but rather whether you have any existing medical conditions that may hinder you from performing your duties regularly/normally.

Thanks for the info.

Well if in future they expect ICA officers to take IPPT, I think its only fair to have that as a requirement for new sign ups. Imagine you have been working with ICA for xx years and suddenly they ask you to take IPPT and because you fail IPPT or because you are classified as medically unfit for IPPT then you lose your job. That would be damn unfair.

Maybe I'm having a mid life crisis (LOL!!) but I'm considering signing on as SO. Dunno if they recognise my part time distance learning degree though. Sigh!
