Health Screening Programme (HSP)
Please take note of the following conditions before participating:
- If you are 35 years old and above, you need to undergo the SAF Health Screening Programme (HSP). As a safety precaution, only those with a Low Cardiac Risk Outcome will be allowed to participate and be certified Fit for Instruction (FFI). Similarly, if you have been certified unfit or temporarily unfit for IPPT, you will also not be allowed to participate in IPPT Preparatory Training (IPT) and Remedial Training (RT) for the same duration.
- If you develop or have a medical condition which may affect your PES grade or medical fitness, please inform your NS Unit. A medical review by the unit Medical Officer (MO) will be arranged for you, who can issue a temporary excuse or schedule a medical board, if necessary. When you have a temporary PES grade, a review will be done before the expiry of your temporary PES grade.
Update on 3 April 2020: To safeguard SAF personnel's health and maintain the units' integrity, the SAF will implement enhanced safe distancing measures. HSP and Medical Review appointments will be temporarily suspended till 4 May 2020. The temporary suspension may be extended if the COVID-19 situation does not improve.
If you have a specific medical condition that limits your full participation in IPT or RT, but can participate in some forms of training, please get assessed by the MO or paramedic stationed at the training session before participating.
