All applicants for sworn positions must complete Physical Readiness Testing (PRT). Prior to participating in PRT applicants must complete a PAR-F medical questionnaire - https://www.friscotexas.gov/DocumentCenter/View/18718/Frisco-Police-Department-PAR-F
The PRT is offered in one format, the 2000 Meter row. The test is conducted indoors on a Concept 2 rower with the damper set on five (5). The minimum standard for each applicant is based on age, weight and gender. Using the percentage results for the test battery found on the Texas Department of Public Safety website chart, and the 2000 Meter row calculator, applicants must meet a minimum percentage score of 40% in order to be considered for employment. Applicants are reminded this is a competitive process and are encouraged to put forth their best effort.
To find your required time, click on the following link and enter your information. Enter your gender, your weight, and your age. Enter 40% in the target VO2 max percentage box and hit “enter”. The time listed is the maximum time you will have to successfully row 2000 meters.
