Fitness Test


Below are common questions regarding the MHSOA Fitness Test requirements


Q: Who is required to take a fitness test?

A:
The MHSOA Constitution states:
"To maintain a 1 or 1A classification the official must take the State fitness test as defined by NYSCOS prior to October 1st. An official cannot be upgraded to a 1 or 1A unless he/she has taken the State fitness test."

This means that Class 1 and 1A members must take the fitness test or else be demoted.
Also, Class 2 and 3 members who wish to be considered for promotion to Class 1 or 1A must take the fitness test.

The MHSOA Executive Committee strongly encourages all members, even those not strictly required, to participate in the fitness test.
