ACFT standards released: Test proponent talks roll-out, addresses soldiers' common concerns
from Army Times
The test is just for practice this year — unless you're arriving to basic combat training beginning Oct. 1. All new officers and enlisted soldiers coming into the Army after that date will be training for and required to pass the ACFT before they graduate and report to the operational force, according to Maj. Gen. Lonnie G. Hibbard, commander of the Center for Initial Military Training. "I don't think it will impact graduation rates; It's really going to impact how we train," he said. "We're taking a high school student and transitioning him into a soldier, we just have to make sure he is competent in the ten components of physical fitness to be successful on the ACFT."
