Fitness Test Reporting and Exceptions

Due to popular demand, we have restored the ability to receive a certification of your fitness test status via email. As the new test is pass/fail, we are only maintaining pass/fail data on the web site.

Please be aware that our chapter does not maintain a list of when nearby chapters are administering their chapter fitness tests. If you can not take a scheduled fitness test with the NY Metro chapter, it’s your responsibility to contact other chapters. Use the chapter locator on the NISOA web site to get contact information for your use.
