Physical Ability Test (PAT) Applies to Current List (#45-758) Only
Each candidate is required to pass a series of physical ability tests designed to assess his or her ability to safely and effectively perform the essential physically demanding tasks of the Court Officer position. There are eight separate segments in the Physical Ability Test arranged into four categories. The first two categories assess strength and muscular endurance based on a combination of several individual tests. The remaining two individual categories assess arm-hand steadiness and stamina (aerobic fitness). This is only a summary of the current Physical Ability Test. The Office of Court Administration reserves the right to modify the Physical Ability Test at any time during the duration of the eligible list
