hey guys seems to me that the problem with Singaporeans is that we cant seem to pass IPPT due to our busy work life and blah. Anyway I been recently managing to pass due to weekly exercises to keep in shape like jogging once a week.

Also my other secret to pass is to attempting those non-monetary ippt attempts at safra. Since this ippt is just a pass and no money is awarded even if you have silver, they are nicer to you in a sense and normally if you are fit enough, shouldn't have a problem to pass. Make sure you practice the treadmill in the gym for the running part.

Hope this helps you all in passing cheers!

100% confirm your PPT does not reset just because you did not go for IPT for your second year.

and i believe that your PPT for third year will be band 3, instead of band 2, because this PPT thingy is supposed to increase every year regardless of your performance and whether you got attend IPT or not.

MINDEF Services > Non-ICT IPPT/RT > IPPT Preparatory Training

Reassessment of PPT
NSmen who are medically excused from IPPT or IPT for one or more birthday windows will be allowed to take another CAT test to determine their PPT again. For other cases, NSmen will be expected to meet the required (higher) PPT level from the last PPT level.

Personal Performance Target (PPT) Standards
The PPT Standard Table 2 and 3 charts the expected incremental fitness standards from level 1 to 4. PPT level will be raised automatically to the next higher level each year, regardless of result attained. NSmen who are ready for higher PPT level can consult the Fitness Specialists to accelerate their training regime.

hi guys...my window is expiring this week but i have an injury now so unable to take ippt...can i request to extend my window for another month for my injury to completely recover before i go attempt my ippt?...

who can i call by the way? ns hotline or the fccs?...thanx...
Instead of calling, you can also go for a RT session and explain your situation to the WO in charge of the FCC and ask them for a 1 month extension.. from my experience most of them are quite understanding and reasonable. I had an injury last year, missed my IPPT window and talked to the WO IC before one of my RT sessions started. He allowed me to book the next RT session as a RT-IPPT, instead of making me do the whole 20 sessions. Of course this depends on your ability to pass, which they determine by looking at your past IPPT records.. if you are perpetual RT warrior for your whole NSman life then forget about going down this route

the problem is if you never attempt IPPT at least once and just went straight to RT, you will be charged as IPPT defaulter.

i suggest you go attempt an IPT-IPPT first and then see how.

if SAF got reset your PPT then congratulations.

if even never reset it is still not a waste of time cos if you never attempt IPPT at least once during the 9 months window, you will be charged as IPPT defaulter. IPT-IPPT counts as an IPPT attempt so you are safe from being charged.


and not sure if you are aware but if you complete all 10 IPT sessions in the 9 month window, you only need to do 8 RT sessions in the last 3 months, as opposed to 20 RT sessions.

Hihi, paiseh...Was too busy to write down long info so end up trolling in some posts.

Don't take it too hard. Don't take it to heart.

Thank you.

if never complete IPT just go 20 RT session right, no charge or anything also right?

end of day 10+8 = 18 sessions just 2 sessions shy. at least RT pays my cab fare home and I can leave work earlier for it haha.

You need to attempt an IPPT which i presume you would have took in the 1st session of IPT. Then, you will be okay.

RT needs to complete within last 3 months (or 4 months if you can extend) but it is still quite troublesome if your company doesn't allow you to go off early.

if you have no issue to doing 20 RT sessions in 3 months then go for it...

but just remember to attempt IPPT at least once during your first 9 months.

Hello, I have read the last 20 pages but still got doubts. I am thinking of joining the IPT weight loss programme.

1) I checked the PPT charts. What happens if someone hits PPT4 at the end of 4 years?

2) do the ppt bands increase regardless of your current weight every year?

3) is there a categorization for weight loss participants for IPT? Last time when I did it, the different colored tags, yellow and red are for those who fail stations/running respectively. Now theres all the talk about waves and all. I'm confused.

4) what's stopping RT-ers from getting joining the weight loss group? Do they see your weight and decide if you are eligible for it?

1) IPT is like a progressive training for u to pass IPPT. Once u reach PPT4, you will stay there, means expected to pass lah.

2) Yes and I believe weight loss IPT is only for 1 year. After that, u join normal IPT.

4) Not too sure if they change the rule but as long as u look plump or fat or have a big tummy, u can request to join the weight loss group.

Hi guys, I booked my ippt for this morning at 730 at Maju but missed it as I was working till 3am last night. My window closes on the 6th and there is only slots left tomorrow at TPY safra and on 6th May... System does not allow me to book for tmr session as I am still considered as registered today.. Would the NS hotline be able to help me book for tmr session? And does SAFRA allow walk-ins...? TIA.
