Does anyone have an idea on how long a recruit can be in the FIT division to pass a run test?
I got the dreaded phone call last night that my SR failed the final PFA due to coming up short on the 1.5 mile run. He said he is getting a chance today to retake it and if he passes he can call me to let me know he grads with his division this coming friday. I have researched about the FIT div but cant find anything about a deadline to pass before a possible discharge. Does he have weeks?months?
I talked to his recruiter today and he said they will help him pass even if it takes months.
Not to be rude...but that isn't true. They give them a certain amount of time (dependent on the recruit). If they don't pass after that time frame they will send them home.
Think logically if they can't pass the run after a certain amount of time the government is still paying them to sit there and try to keep running. If they have such a hard time, now doing it and even after special one on one training, how are they going to pass it next time in the fleet? Odds are they won't.
Logically thinking...What is the time frame? That was my question to begin with. Just need an idea. He had the flu a week ago. Im thinking he is just weak right now. The flu takes alot out of you.
I am in the same seat as Audrey below in her comment with my daughter,
and like Audrey below we too recieved our call about 7:20
are we still able to write her how do we know if she will recieve mail? does the address change?
Hi Audrey, I called the human resources at the base. They will let you know the status of your recruit. Very friendly staff. They reassured me that by looking at my sons history/ Records in bootcamp that they expect him to pass. My son was very sick a week before the final PFA. I hope to get a call soon that he passed. Not one of his letters to home sounded negative about any tests coming up. He actually liked bootcamp. Looks like he likes it so much he decided to stay longer LOL.
Add me as a friend or private message me with an update on how your son is doing.
They told me to mail letters to his old division. They will get it to the recruits. But they may pass and go to A-school before it gets there.
Like Angie said.
They give them a time frame based on where the recruit is lacking and how much time they need to make up.
I guess for example...they give you 3 weeks based on your status. If you dont get it by then, you dont desire to pass or you just dont cut it. Hopefully it doesnt come to that.
would you have That #
Do you think if i call they would tell me what her status is, I have not heard anything from her. or how she is doing, I wanted to write to her but i was not sure if she would get her mail.
Sorry I have not replied back to you. I have been out of town.
