So I have been watching the PARE Test videos posted on you tube and I am curious as to how to jump over the 3ft barrier when doing PARE test? Are you allowed to touch the bar when you are jumping over it or you are not allowed to touch it? Can you jump over it with one foot on top for safety? The reason I ask is I have to do the PARE test and I am finding it difficult to jump over the 3ft barrier, I have no problem jumping over it with one foot on top( like you do in PREP test when going over the wall).
I have seen the you tube videos and the girls are basically stepping over it. Is that allowed when performing the test? Thanks.
Found this, seems effective? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiTDm6EOjqQ

This 2013 edition should be current as it replaces the 2008 manual. I would however ask recruiting or the staff administering the test about any "in-place" practices.
Edit: I was thinking of the Vancouver Police test with standing next to the vault, and doing multiple vaults in a row.
After reviewing the video 26point2 posted... I'd follow his advice and use some of your momentum to roll over the vault 1 leg first as if it were a fence top.
But in time, I will get it right.

Excellent pointers, something very simple that may make the difference between a pass / fail. Easy enough area to shave off seconds and over 6 laps those seconds definitely add up
