I am in the process of hopefully starting as a PCSO with Thames Valley, all I have left now is the fitness test which is this week. So far as I understand it's the same as the regulars - the bleep test and the push/pull tests. I am getting bit nervy and just hope I pass...............

I think PCSOs have the ideal job to keep them fit, tons of walking or cycling on a regular basis, PCSOs have it on a plate to keep fit compared to other jobs but cop this from the Daily Mail
Employees with cars could be forced to park up to a MILE from the office in radical NHS plans to tackle obesity
By Claire Bates PUBLISHED:11:45, 4 February 2013| UPDATED:11:54, 4 February 2013
Walk to work: Employees should be made to park a mile from the office, suggest experts
School children could take compulsory skipping lessons while office workers could be forced to walk over a mile to and from their desks under radical NHS plans to tackle the obesity epidemic.

Medical experts also want to make cookery lessons in school compulsory with pupils being taught how to make healthy, low calorie dishes.

Dr Frances Howie, assistant director of public health at NHS Worcestershire, outlined the plans at a crisis meeting to discuss the nation's bulging waistline.

One of the more controversial ideas is to force adults to take more exercise by deliberately building car parks three-quarters-of-a-mile away from their offices.

Dr Howie warned experts that 'we cannot carry on as we are.'

Why should I want a fitness test? I would fail. I get out of breath putting my boots on!

We had a fitness test on our assessment day.
And ANOTHER fitness test on our first day of training.

Both of these fitness tests were identical to that of a PC applicant!

And so it should be. And I to know a lot of PCs who wouldn't be able to pass it now, hehehe.

So who was handing out donuts? ;)

If the pcso's in your station had to undergo a fitness test now say a beep test or 2 mile run how many would pass! Saying that i know pc's that if had to undergo a fitness test now would not pass! Thats good living for you!.. :wink: (anyone for another donut!) :lol:

It's not nice all this waiting is it, does your head in! :roll:

Are you doing anything in preparation for the fitness Kipper? I've started running, but can't go that far at the moment! :?

Also did you think the assessment day was fairly easy, or did you find it quite daunting? I know you said you found the process very cold and impersonal, but were the actual tests/role play very difficult?

I know you can't say too much (sigining the disclaimer etc) but can you give me an incey wincey clue pleeeeeeeeease? :P

You're a busy bee Kipper.... we're certainly keeping you on your toes :P

Have you heard anything about your assesssment day yet, and do you know how long they take?

I still haven't heard anything yet........ a date to go and get assessed :cry:

Wilts - there is a current thread on this one that started less than a week ago. There was no poll though. I will look into combining the two threads to tidy up a bit.

I think you should be pretty fit for this job, but being as we're not meant to be running around after people then I think the bleep test is sufficient for PCSOs. We didn't have a medical or any fitness test for this role, and I do know of some PCSOs that find all the walking every day quite an ordeal!

I must admit it took me ages to get used to it. I just love it now, and have never felt fitter and healthier in my life...... abeit I'm knackered most of the time! :roll:

Couldn't imagine ever sitting, tied to a desk again. Love the walking, the fresh air and talking all day...... right up my street :D
