garb811 said:I think the bigger issue is you're asking what a "competitive" FORCE test score is without defining what you mean by competitive. Competitive in relation to what? Selection for JTF2, selection for a jump course, being the top scorer in your unit...? Since you're asking in the recruiting sub-forum, do you mean competitive to be as in competitive for being recruited because if that is your concern, it isn't a factor in being recruited.
knowr said:Thanks for reeling it in back to my original question!
Yes this is in regards to recruiting. During the fitness test the recruiters mentioned standard times to pass the test but also competitive times (for example, if I recall correctly, 3min for the loaded shuttle). I don't remember the precise times after the test and can't seem to find it listed anywhere online. That's why I'm asking here.
The recruiters seem to have suggested that times DO matter in the selection process. I'm applying part-time Infantry NCM to the Queen's Own Rifles in Toronto which apparently has a high fitness standard as they are a parachute company.

Focus on the basics first. And don't get injured!
