The Army will begin administering the Occupational Physical Assessment Test (OPAT) to all recruits as a way to assess their fitness for military occupational specialties. The OPAT will also be used to assess some Soldiers who are reclassifying into a different MOS. The test will be administered to everyone coming into the Army, officer, enlisted, active, Reserve and Guard — about 80,000 people annually. MOSs are divided into three physical demand categories under the OPAT. These PDCs are: Heavy (Black); Significant (Gray); Moderate (Gold); Unqualified (White). The Soldier's commander is responsible for ensuring the OPAT is administered prior to approval of a reclassification.
