Does anyone know where I can find a one page chart for the PIN test? I know I used to have one, but I can't find it in any of my notes....

I'm specifically looking for an older version that Peel Region used to use.... I'm mainly looking to use it as a gauge for my fitness over time.
It would have had the sit and reach, chin ups, push ups, sit ups, etc... The only one I can find is on the Toronto police site, and it's got different stuff on it.

If you mean the test that Peel used to use for their applicants, that was not the fitness PIN, that was something else, it had eight different components.

PRP's old fitness test was changd sometime back in 2006/7.

Peel's old physical test: (according to a forum post)
- 1.5 mile run
- pushups
- situps (*this is the "curlups", a form of situps with hands at side)
- curlups (*I believe this should read "chinups" as in pullups)
- flexibility
- body fat test
- 1 rep max test (i.e. benchpress)
- 100 yard sprint

(**as noted above, NOT the PIN test, but a unique PRP test)

Very few people were passing this old test, which highly limited the hiring pool.
Therefore, PRP changed to running their own PREP / SHUTTLE back in 2006/7.
PRP then changed within the same year to using the ATS PREP / SHUTTLE altogether.

Finally, PRP has added the additional requirement for some/all applicants of the OPFA PIN test component into testing in 2015/6.
This PIN test includes:
-Pushups
-Core Endurance Test (plank)
-Forward trunk flexion (flexibility)
-1.5 mile run -OR- Shuttle run (weather dependent)

Yeah, that's the one I'm after. I was hoping to find the sheet with the scores for different age groups, etc. I guess I can just make something up.

Thanks guys :)

There are also alot of fitness tests available online.
Some are much harder than ATS/PARE/Peel, some are much easier:

-York University FireFighter test (you'll need a weight vest, dumbells, and sandbags). Harder.
-Canada Forces (sandbags) About the same.
-Dallas SWAT (surprisingly easy... 1.5 mile time is 16:28 compared to Ontario's 9:20 for perfect score) Much easier.
