As part of a condition of employment, candidates will need to successfully complete the Police Training Institute Pre-Certification Power Test. This is a pass/fail test based on age range and gender, and you must pass every component.

We highly recommended that each applicant visit with his/her physician prior to participating in the physical fitness examination portions of the process or before beginning an exercise program. Neither the City of Urbana nor any other agency whose facilities might be used for the testing assumes any liability for injury affiliated with the examination. Applicants will be required to sign a hold-harmless waiver as a condition of participating in the testing.

This video is from the Naperville Police Department (thanks Naperville!); the Urbana Police Department uses the same test.
