Coming Soon to our website will be a new process to express an interest in receiving an application. 

Check back regularly on this website for information when we will launch our new application process!



Prior to Testing: 

Print the Waiver Form from the website, read it and sign it. 

Visit the JRPAT Practice page to ensure you can complete the physical ability test.  If you are not sure you can pass the physical ability test, DO NOT SIGN UP AT THIS TIME.  

Minimum age requirement to test is 21.  Review the Minimum Standards for Employment to ensure you meet these standards prior to signing up.

  • IF YOU MUST RETAKE THE PHYSICAL ABILITY TEST, DO NOT USE THE ONLINE SIGN-UP.  Please call 704-432-1603 to arrange your test time.

Test Day:
BE ON TIME!  If you are late, you will not be admitted to testing.  Allow a minimum of 4 hours to complete both examinations.


Cancellation Policy:
The sign up system allows you to cancel yourself from testing.  This is a first-come/first-serve sign-up.  If you cannot make testing, please be mindful of others and take your name off the schedule. 
If you sign up for testing, do not show up for testing and have not taken your name off the list, you will be disqualified from entering our process for one year.

Dress for the weather.  You will be waiting outside prior to check-in.

Remember, you will be participating in physical activity on test day.  Please wear comfortable clothes that give you the proper support when you jog or run and perform the push-ups and sit-ups properly.  

We ask each participant, for the comfort of those around you, to wear a t-shirt.  No tank tops or visible sports bras, please.  Dress in gym clothes.
