The Academy Physical Agility WSTB Tests

WSTB Test Info (please read carefully):

South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium (The Academy) provides entry level physical agility testing to applicants for law enforcement officers. The following Work Sample Test Battery (WSTB) has been developed:


Work Sample Test Battery (WSTB):
a. 99 yard obstacle course
b. 32 foot body drag (165 lbs.)
c. 6 foot chain link fence climb
d. 6 foot solid wall climb
e. 500 yard sprint
f. 1.5 mile run (completed in 14 minutes or less)


The established qualifying score for most agencies is set at 320 as its minimum entry level requirement for the WSTB phase and a 14 minute maximum time for the 1.5 mile run. Tests are given rain or shine.


Except for the inclusion of a 1.5 mile run, the physical agility test otherwise mirrors the WSTB physical agility test standard required for graduation from a California POST accredited peace officer academy. The WSTB test is given at The Academy in San Jose.


Corrections Physical Agility:

South Bay conducts Physical Agility testing for employment in the field of Corrections, upon Agency request. The pre-employment test for Corrections includes:


a. 99 yard obstacle course
b. 32 foot body drag (165 lbs.)
c. 165 lb. body lift
d. 1.5 mile run (completed in 14 minutes or less)


To make a reservation for a Corrections test, choose any WSTB exam date and check the checkbox for Corrections.
