Luckily for me the need for a mine clearing device is Canada is low to begin with....but perhaps you should email the folks who set the fitness requirements.  Ha

Upon my search for the pre-screening physical fitness test I have for CSOR and JTF2 and both seem semi-outdated. I found two CSOR versions (one and two) however both reference the CF Expres Manual for instructions how to perform the different exercises they prescribe for the test. Also the JTF2 one (link) has a similar evaluation but has the instructions included on the page. I am quite sure the CSOR I found is outdated (since the CF Expres was no longer administered since April 2014) and I have suspicions that JTF2 one is as well. I wonder if anyone has more up-to-date version of these two. I am a civve so I don't have access to PSP staff (If that is even where you get them...).

Slightly unrelated but some of the stats in the second link for CSOR is quite interesting since it is about comparing JTF2 to other SOF teams(British Parachutists, US SEALs, US Special Forces Green Berets).

Congrats... you've just passed :)

Upon further search I found this gem. Amendments include using 5th version of the CF EXPRES manual. It was written on July 3 2015 and the sixth point states that an 3rd version of the pre-selection test will be released in early 2016. I assume that means late 2016 to early 2017 considering I wasn't able to find a 3rd version.

Congrats... you've just passed :)

Thank you! Don't know what I passed, but thanks! Was my first post on here so I was afraid of getting roasted but looks like I did it right. ;D
