NCOER Part IVc. APFT

DA PAM 623-3 Para 3-7

NCOER part IV: block c—APFT
Action required: In the space after the word “APFT” the rater will enter “PASS” or “FAIL” and the date (YYYYMMDD) of the most recent record APFT administered by the unit; it will be within the 12–month period prior to the “THRU” date of report. However, the APFT date does not have to fall within the period covered by the evaluation report. If the NCO was unable to participate in the most recent record APFT (for example, due to a profile or pregnancy), his or her status at that time will be documented appropriately. The APFT for Soldiers without profiles consists of push-ups, sit-ups, and a 2–mile run.

— For Soldiers with permanent profiles who have been cleared to take an alternate APFT, enter “PASS” or “FAIL” for the alternate APFT as prescribed by health care personnel and the date of the APFT. The APFT may include an alternate authorized aerobic event (walk, bike, or swim). No comment about the rated Soldier’s profile is required.

— For Soldiers with permanent profiles whose profiles prohibit them from taking the APFT, the entry will be left blank and the rater will explain the reason it has been left blank.

— Soldiers with temporary profiles at the time of the unit’s record APFT will enter “PROFILE” and the date (YYYYMMDD) the profile was awarded. The date of the profile must be within 12 months prior to the “THRU” date of the evaluation report.

— Sample entries are; “PASS 20100414”, “FAIL 20100507”, or “PROFILE 20100302.” APFT numerical scores will not be entered.

— The rater will address a “FAIL” entry for APFT in block c. Bullet comments for “FAIL” entries may include the reason(s) for failure and/or note any progress toward meeting physical fitness standards of AR 350–1.

— A comment on “PROFILE” entries will be made only if the rated NCO’s ability to perform his or her assigned duties is affected.

— The rater will explain the absence of an APFT entry in block c. If the APFT has not been taken within 12 months of the “THRU” date of the report the APFT data entry will be left blank and the rater will provide an explanation in block c. In accordance with AR 40–501, an APFT is not required for pregnant NCOs.

— For pregnant NCOs who have not taken the APFT within the last 12 months due to pregnancy, temporary profiles, and/or convalescent leave, the rater will enter the following statement: “Exempt from APFT requirement in accordance with AR 40–501.” Note. When using the Wizard application associated with the electronic form within the "My Forms" Portal on AKO, the APFT and height and weight statement will be combined.

— In accordance with AR 350–1, NCOs 55 years of age and older have the option of taking the three-event APFT or an alternate APFT, but they will not be considered as being on profile, unless a current profile exists.

— Additionally, NCOs 60 years of age and older have the option of not taking the APFT; however, they must maintain a personal physical fitness program approved by a physician and remain within compliance of height and weight standards of AR 600–9. If no APFT is taken, leave the APFT entry blank and make a comment addressing the blank APFT entry, “NCO exempt from APFT requirement in accordance with AR 350–1.”

— Deployed units unable to administer the APFT due to mission or conditions will annotate NCOERs with the following statement: “NCO unable to take the APFT during this period due to deployment for combat operations/contingency operations.” In accordance with AR 350–1, upon return from deployment, NCOs will be administered a record APFT no earlier than 3 months for active Army and 6 months for USAR and ARNG NCOs. Note. NCOs are not exempted from complying with height and weight requirements of AR 600–9.

— Rater-specific information on bullet comments in block c for the following:

— “Received APFT badge” may be entered as a bullet comment to justify “excellence.” The APFT badge is awarded for scores of 270 points and above with at least 90 points in each of the three events.

— NCOs who meet Army minimum standards for APFT, but fail to meet unit standards, will not be given a rating of “needs improvement” for physical fitness and military bearing, if such rating is based solely on the failure to meet unit standards.

NCOER part IV: block c—Height/Weight
Action required: In the space after “Height/Weight” the rater will enter the rated NCO’s height and weight as of the unit’s last record weigh-in. If there is no unit weigh-in during the period covered by the report, the rater will enter the NCO’s height and weight as of the “THRU” date of the NCOER. An entry of “YES” or “NO” will be placed in the space next to the weight to indicate compliance or noncompliance with AR 600–9.

Sample entries are: “72/180 YES” or “68/205 NO.”

— For NCOs 60 years of age and older, who must remain in compliance with height and weight standards, the “Height/Weight” entry will be completed. Soldiers 60 years of age or older are only exempted from the requirement to take the APFT.

— The rater will enter a “YES” for NCOs who meet the table screening weight or are in compliance with the body fat standards of AR 600–9, as determined by tape measurement and the use of DA Form 5501.

— The rater will comment on a “NO” entry, indicating noncompliance with the standards of AR 600–9, in part IV, block c. These comments should indicate the reason for noncompliance; medical conditions may be cited for noncompliance, however, the “NO “entry is still required because medical waivers to weight control standards are not permitted for evaluation report purposes. The progress or lack of progress in a weight control program will be indicated.

— For pregnant NCOs, the entire entry is left blank. The rater will enter the following statement: “Exempt from weight control standards of AR 600–9.” Note. When using the Wizard application associated with the electronic form within the "My Forms" Portal on AKO, the APFT and height and weight statement will be combined.

— Rating officials will not use the word “pregnant,” or refer to an NCO’s pregnancy in any manner when completing the NCOER.

— Unless the Soldier has an approved request for Army, DCS G–1 waiver of compliance with AR 600–9, the height and weight standards of AR 600–9 apply at all times, even when the officer is deployed for combat or contingency operations. If the Soldier has an approved Army G–1 waiver, the rater will enter “Rated NCO has an Army G–1 waiver of compliance with AR 600–9.” In such cases, a copy of the Army G–1 approval memo will be submitted as an enclosure to the evaluation report. This entry will not be left blank.
