In order for a cadet to receive a Phase I certificate of completion, certain classroom and physical must be met before the end of training.

Classroom and Academic Standards
Cadets must meet the minimum passing scores for all exams (generally 75%, though some may require a passing score of 100%) and meet the minimum proficiency standards in all applicable areas (defensive tactics, etc.).

Physical Standards
Cadets are required to meet the following 50th percentile Cooper standards. It is strongly recommended that each cadet be as close as possible to these standards before enrolling in the program.
