Physical Training Phase for NS enlistees extended
Posted: 12 February 2009 1433 hrs

SINGAPORE: The Ministry of Defence has decided to extend the Physical Training Phase (PTP) for National Service enlistees who fail to get NAPFA test silver award.

The PTP will be extended from four weeks to eight weeks, but the overall duration of full-time two-year National Service will remain unchanged for these enlistees.

Second Defence Minister Dr Ng Eng Hen, speaking in Parliament on Thursday, said: "This (extension) will enable a more uniform level of fitness amongst the recruits when they start their BMT (Basic Military Training)."

The eight-week PTP will be implemented for those enlisted from December 2009.
