Belts for PT

The color of the belt depends on how fast that you run in PT:

Blue belt/Group A: Run 1.5 miles in less than 11:39
Green belt/Group B: Run 1.5 miles in 11:39-12:53
Yellow belt/Group C: Run 1.5 miles in 12:54-14:25
Red belt/Group D: Run 1.5 miles in 14:26-17:35

What if my trainee fails PT?

For trainees that are not meeting the fitness requirements, the Air Force invests in making sure they pass!  If a trainee fails the WOT 6 PT test, he/she will be recycled one week into another flight.  This may or may not be the same TRS, but your trainee will be allowed to call with the new address.  A call such as this usually happens by the Friday of WOT 6.  However, always remember that NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS!  This is why we urge you to get refundable/transferable tickets, or  at least check with your airline/hotel to see what their policies are in case the date changes.  

If the trainee passes the next week with the new Flight, he/she will graduate with their new flight and move on to Airmen’s Week.  However, if the trainee fails again, he/she will be allowed to contact you again to let you know the next steps in his/her training.
