1. HQDA EXORD 153-22 ARMY COMBAT FITNESS TEST (ACFT), DTG: 241300Z MAR 22. Some key points in this EXORD: https://www.milsuite.mil/book/
a. Mission. Starting 1 April 2022, the ACFT will begin to be fully implemented as the Army’s official physical fitness test; with record testing beginning 01 October 2022 as follows: Regular Army and United States Army Reserve Active Guard Reserve (RA/USAR (AGR)) personnel completing one record ACFT prior to 1 April 2023, and Army Reserve and Army National Guard component (RC (less USAR (AGR)) personnel completing one record ACFT prior to 1 April 2024.
b. Soldiers are accountable upon executing their first record test. The Army will incorporate the ACFT into personnel policy in a time-phased, deliberate manner, to ensure all Soldiers have the opportunity to train for and take the test.
c. All RA/USAR (AGR) Soldiers will take a record ACFT prior to 01 April 2023 and RC Soldiers will take a record ACFT prior to 01 April 2024.
d. All Soldiers are expected to become familiar with the revised ACFT events and scoring tables, and will take at least one diagnostic ACFT prior to taking their first record ACFT.
e. All ACFT modification templates (in E-profile) for permanent profiles (reference c) must be updated to reflect the ACFT Events permitted and prohibited. Soldiers with a medical restriction in performing the plank or those with an approved legacy ACFT modification profile which restricts performing the leg tuck must have the profile updated immediately to reflect any restrictions to performing the plank event. The least number of events which a Soldier can take based on the provisions of a permanent profile is one aerobic event (run, bike, swim, row or walk). If unable to take a single aerobic event, the Soldier cannot take a test.
f. RA and USAR (AGR). Soldiers will take a diagnostic ACFT (to standard) between 01 April 2022 and 30 September 2022. In any instance where the Soldier passes a diagnostic ACFT prior to 01 October 2022, the Soldier may elect to have that diagnostic test re-characterized as a record ACFT and uploaded to the Digital Training Management System (DTMS) at any time after 01 October 2022. See coordinating instructions for additional information on re-characterizing a test.
g. RC (less USAR (AGR)). Soldiers will take a diagnostic ACFT (to standard) between 01 April 2022 and 31 March 2023. In any instance where the Soldier passes a diagnostic ACFT prior to 01 April 2023, the Soldier may elect to have that diagnostic test re-characterized as a record ACFT and uploaded to the Digital Training Management System (DTMS) at any time after 01 April 2023. See coordinating instructions for additional information on re-characterizing a test.
h. HQDA DCS, G-3/5/7 will publish a subsequent FRAGO to this EXORD announcing when DTMS is ready to receive data, and forward data to personnel systems. Additionally, HQDA DCS, G-3/5/7 will provide detailed instructions on the procedures for re-characterizing a diagnostic ACFT to a record ACFT as outlined in paragraph 3.b.2.d.
