Physical training involved in POELT

Post by AndyK » Mon Nov 13, 2017 11:22 pm

I start my induction week on 15 Jan at HMP Risley then POELT at HMP WYMOTT. What physical training is involved i.e. runs, circuit training?. Are snt there any and its all class room based for 10 weeks?. Is passing physical test on RAD good enough?

I can't see it given the entry level of fitness is so low, I could be wrong though.

There is no physical training involved in POELT, previously I trained as a Police Officer and we would do the bleep test every week to improve on our fitness and a 4 mile run every 2-3 weeks. At Newbold there is a gym that you can use in the evenings but no sessions as part of the training. It is up to each recruit to maintain their level of fitness.
