Who will conduct fitness tests and where will the program be administered?
Answer: Trained civilian employees will conduct fitness tests. The fitness program will be administered at new centrally located fitness assessment cells, or FAC. For geographically separated units or other locations with less than 1,000 military members, Airmen may travel to the closest base with a FAC at their commander's discretion, or physical training leaders and/or unit fitness program managers will continue to administer the test at the GSU location.
Why did the Air Force create fitness assessment cells?
Answer: Fitness assessment cells were created to reduce the administrative burden on squadrons and maximize objectivity in testing.
