I have found great information about COT through these threads and on websites (Air Force and Maxwell AFB) but I have a few pretty specific questions.
I spoke with an Air Force health recruiter and was told that there is an HPSP scholarship
I can apply for (I want to complete my nurse practitioner) and that the max age is 48 years old. I'll be 41 if all goes well when I complete the program.
On the websites, the daily schedules differ a bit. One states fitness begins at 05:00-06:00 and the other states 05:15-06:00; I'm wondering wondering which is correct and what exactly do you do. I've read up on the passing requirements so I am assuming that running, sit ups, and push ups are part of it. Also, what time can you actually go to bed? One site has it at 9:00PM and the other state 11:00pm. I'm just thinking that if you can't go to bed until 11 and have to be out at the field by 5 am over a couple of weeks it may really take its toll.
What ages of people were in COT? Are the push ups modified for females? I can barely do ten, but I am working on it with my current exercise program.
PLEASE, any specifics will help. Do you have time on the weekends to go to the BX if you need to pick things up? Do you wear your uniform? How difficult is the curriculum?
I appreciate your help. Any and all specific information is GREATLY APPRECIATED.
