I have a Soldier with a Permanent Profile who can’t do all APFT events. How will his score be calculated?

I have a Soldier with a permanent profile who can only do the push-up event and the alternate walk in place of the run. How will his APFT score be calculated? Can he still get promotion points?

Soldiers with profiles are still granted promotion points based on their APFT score, regardless if they cannot do all APFT events.

To calculate the APFT score, AR 600-8-19, Par 3-42 states:

(1) Permanent Profiles.

(a) Those Soldiers with permanent physical profiles for the sit-up and/or push-up events will be granted 60 points for each event waived and use the actual score for each evet taken and must qualify on the 2-mile run or approved alternate test according to FM 21-20.

(b) Effective 1 April 1995, Soldiers taking an alternate event for the 2-mile run and receiving a passing score receive a score for that event equal to the average of the scores for the other two events.
