If a guy turn 40 in October this year must still take ippt? If attempted but fail.. must do RT?

Should be subject to RT if you did not meet the requirements even if youíre turning 40 as itís still ur IPPT Window tho.

To all HomeTeam NSmen, I noticed when I did my non-ICT IPPT at FCC(Iím a SAF NSman), you guys find it hard to use the static machines to achieve ur desired scores. I suggest either you book for IPT and train(if you want to) at the FCCs, request to FI to use the machines and find ur momentum at each static stations.

Donít get angry when the machines did not count your Reps. SAF static machines are really strict and it seems to capture your body position.

Or, best way is to just book at HTA(Police) and NSTI(SCDF) as all of you are used to the protocols there. Although itís hard to find time for trainings especially when youíre at work but having a just Pass for IPPT(51 point) can relief yourself from burden.

Cheer up and all the best! 😬

Hi May I ask, is Maju Camp 2.4 running route is round the track or indoor like Kranji camp?
long time ago it was 3 big rounds around part of the camp
then it changed to running around the indoor carpark "track" hard ground....(no rubber track to cushion)
dont think it has changed. so yea, you'll probably be breathing in dust and stale air for 6 rounds.

So even if havent officially MR yet but already completed all 10 ICT liao, receive watch medal etc.. still will tio charged ah?
effective MR date is start from 1 Apr each yr

since u say u complete 10 ICT but havent officially MR, so u MR effective 1 Apr 2020 onwards?

then from now till 31 March 2020, you are still liable to clear IPPT/RT etc

for 2017 to 2018 window, i failed ippt so my 2018 to 2019 window is RT window
since i passed my RT in 2018 to 2019, my 2019 to 2020 is ippt window(currently)

do absolutely nothing == IPPT defaulter charge + RT for 20/21
attempt and fail == RT for 20/21

have you considered being IPT regular so you just do 10 sessions each window? rather than 1 IPPT (fail) in one window then 19 (RT) the next window.....or are you the type who prefers 2 years do one long burst of physical activities??

Hey guys,
I am going to MR end of this work year but need to clear one more ippt by oct.
If I attempt and cannot pass, still need to clear RT after window?
Thanks
Very interested to know the answer for this loophole. These past 2 years, there were a few guys in my coy who are exploiting this loophole.

For some, the active window is just an IPPT-window. Meaning if they fail, they're just avoiding RT by virtue of the MR date.

For others, the active window is a RT-window. Meaning if they fail the ICT-IPPT and bo-chup RT totally, they are essentially using the MR date to avoid a RT defaulter charge which i think is more serious (avoiding a punishment for a punishment). I'm curious to know how SAF view this issue.

Unfortunately i'm not close to any of them, so i don't know the outcome of their cases. None of them reaching 40 yet.

1st session is a categorisation test, last session is another test to see if you meet your category/band standards or improved from your category. Just tank both sessions. And follow through motion for the 8 trainings in between.

Hello, I failed my IPPT at SAFRA last weekend because I stepped off the treadmill like an idiot.

I'm trying to get used to running on the treadmill in another gym, which happens to have the exact same treadmill model, but I can't remember/am not sure how to input the settings implemented in the IPPT at SAFRA. How do I ensure that the machine makes me run for 2.4km at a speed of 10.0 instead of slowing down close to the end of the run? Also, is the gradient set at 0.2 or 2.0?

Any advice regarding the treadmill settings is highly appreciated, as I'm attempting the IPPT again this Sunday. Thank you.
