can park at parking lot near guardroom, designated for ippt takers
Many thanks!

For other's benefit:
Can drive through the camp entrance gate directly without changing pass at guard house. The NSF guard duty personnel will just scan your NRIC. Park at any available lots, very near to the FCC itself.

The whole IPPT experience very smooth and swift.. It's my first time there (and probably my last) since they employed contractors to run the show - versus last time still using the Army PTI.

Exactly . So if you are the IPT regular, dont bother going to ippt and mandatory fit (9+1l in the same window. Just do alternative
Ippt fail
Mandatory fit
Ippt fail
Mandatory fit
So with just mandatory fit you get to clear 2 windows . Plus now got what fit@park, gym, home
Old post but thanks for info bro. How to see if I'm in mandatory fit or ippt window?

Hello, if i have yet to clear my IPPT requirement for the window 2021 (Jan)

is it better to take one IPPT fail, and go for mandatory ns fit to clear both 2021 and 2022 window

or

Should I go start going for ns fit in 2021? Will going for 9 training + 1 ippt clear for both 2021 and 2022 or will I need to do 18 training and 2 ippt?

There is no more 20-X stuffs now.

Nowadays if failed IPPT next window will be 10 mandatory NS FIT sessions inclusive of 1 IPPT session.

So the best way is to attend and fail your IPPT to avoid being charged and attend mandatory NS FIT sessions on the next window.

Attempt your IPPT for this window, or you'd get charged for defaulting.

Took my ippt yesterday at bedok camp.
Really long waiting times all round.
Wait for tag, wait to in pro.
After all the briefing and warnings, by the time we started on warm up was close to 1820. Everyone had to complete push ups then they switched over to sit ups.
By 1900, only finished 2 stations. One PTI came to ask if anyone wanted to fall out for the 2.4km. I think there were more than 10 of us. So I just clocked this attempt. With my 9 fit at home sessions, I've completed my requirements for this window.

In all, very slow. Be prepared to wait. Bring your own bottle and there's no more lockers to use, so don't bring too much things into camp.

Guys my IPPT is later. But I have already completed my 9 fit session. If I dont attempt the 2.4km later, will attendance still count? Coz irregardless of whether I pass or fail, I have alrd complete my requirements this window.

Not sure if you've already gone through it, but some FCCs allow you to drop out after 1 static station and consider it an attempt.

Hi got a few question.. if my birthday is on 28 June

1) If I failed my IPPT, does it mean I'm auto enrolled into NS FIT coming window at 29 June?
2) During this window 29 June - next birthday, can I still attempt IPPT?
3) If yes, how many times can I attempt IPPT
4) If no, does It mean i have to complete 10 NS-Fit program? and When can I take IPPT?
5) Also how does Fit@ home works? any idea?

If my understanding is correct, I have to complete 10 NS Fit session, or pass IPPT whichever comes first.
Failing which, I will be enrolled into IPT session?

1) Yes, and this is mandatory, you must complete the programme, since you failed IPPT (and did not fulfill the FIT requirements for current cycle)
2) Yes, in fact it is part of the FIT programme (1x IPPT + 9x FIT)
3) No limit, but they'll only give you allowance for the first 3 attempts
4) Refer to Ans(2). It can be taken in any order of your choosing.
5) Book a slot like how you'd book IPPT or FIT on the portal, then they'd send you the Zoom meeting link for the session, just turn on webcam and be in your PT attire, follow along with the trainer.

If you can't (or think you can't) pass, just take 1 IPPT and the rest 9 FIT sessions to complete your future cycles. This will give you a choice on how you want to complete your following cycle.

Or 1 IPPT attempt, then mandatory NS FIT for the following cycle, rinse and repeat thereafter. (i.e. 11 sessions over 2 years, instead of 20)

The old IPT and RT programmes have been streamlined into NS FIT. It's essentially just IPT, but with RT scrapped.
