Is the PAST now different for crosstrainees? I just saw this on the Special Warfare Training Wing website:

48 push-ups in 2 minutes

AETC is working on a new PAST test, but it has yet to be formally published. I have confirmed that the PAST test posted on our site (here: https://afspecialwarfare.com/past-test/) is still accurate and current. I can only assume they have been working on a divergence of non-prior service standards and retrainee standards.

There is a chance that a modified test could be ran at Phase II (such as the test you mentioned, the Operational Fitness Test, etc).

I have a question regarding who can and can not conduct a PAST for my retraining package. Mypers guidance says a unit fitness monitor (PTL) can conduct the test but I feel as if that may not be sufficient to judge form and verification of numbers if I am putting myself in the eyes of the package evaluator. There are SERE/TACP members at my base who I have touched base with to conduct my PAST if allowed, but I was wondering if that is a no go or go. Thanks.
