ClassGraphic Physical Ability Requirement Evaluation (PARE)
Friday, April 16, 2021

The PARE is an occupational test used to assess a person's ability to perform the physical demands of police work. It is used in the selection process of RCMP applicants, as part of the graduating criteria for cadets at Depot and throughout the career of RCMP Regular Members. The PARE is used by several law enforcement agencies throughout Canada. Applicants must obtain PARE certification by completing the obstacle course and push/pull sections in 4:45 min or less before the Regular Member Selection Interview (RMSI). It is important to prepare for the physical demands of the PARE.
