If a “FOR RECORD APFT TEST” is terminated before all events are completed how much time must elaspse before a Commander can make the Soldier take another “FOR RECORD APFT?”

Can a Commander have the unit start a FOR RECORD APFT and then stop the APFT for some reason and then require the unit to take the APFT again at a later date?

A Commander can conduct or direct a FOR RECORD APFT TEST  be conducted as often as they wish. If only 2 FOR RECORD TESTS are conducted in a year the test  must be separated by at least 4 months. See AR 350-1 for specifics.

However, the Commander also has a duty and responsibility to ensure that the FOR RECORD tests are not conducted in a manner that is unsafe, unreasonably place the Soldier at risk of injury, or are of a frequency that undermine unit mission/readiness or Army Standards.

If you are asking how long a Commander must wait to implement another FOR Record APFT test if a test was started but could not be completed or was canceled… then there is no regulatory answer for this question.
