    Hello, previously, I was diagnosed with pneumonia and was out of PT for about a month. I am technically back to full activity, but due to the long term recovery of pneumonia, I still feel the affects of it on my lungs and take it easy in PT. I also have a PT test coming up this week, and don't feel 100% to take a test. Is there any grace period between being on profile and being allowed to take a PT test? Thank you

    There is no standard grace period as every profile is different. However just ask for more time, it should not be a problem.

    For Army at least, you get twice the length of the profile for recovery time, up to 90 days. If you were on profile for a month, you are entitled to 60 days recovery before taking a PT test. Talk to your chain of'command.

    At least for AFROTC the reg is that you need to pass it before the end of the semester if you are not on profile. I'm sure cadre would work with you even if it mean pushing to the end of the semester.

    I remember when I had pneumonia. It ruined my entire track season. I got it like a month into the season, got better but my cardio never fully recovered until the season was over

    Thank you all! I saw that FM 7-22 says that I don't need to take it because of the longevity of my profile. I informed cadre as well. Thank you!

    Are you contracted/what year are you?

    This will make a difference; since Jr. year your PT tests count towards your OML. If not, then it's not as big a factor.
