Medical screening

Medical screening is a series of medical tests done at the Medical Classification Centre (MCC) at CMPB (location map).

The objective of these tests is to ascertain your medical condition and accord you a suitable Physical Employment Status (PES). Based on your PES, you will be assigned to a suitable vocation.

Here are the various PES gradings:

  • PES A: Fit for all combat vocations
  • PES B1: Fit for most combat vocations
  • PES B2: Fit for some combat vocations
  • PES BP: Fit for obese BMT training
  • PES C: Fit for combat support vocations
  • PES D: Temporary unfit for grading and pending further review
  • PES E: Fit for administrative duties only
  • PES F: Medically unfit for any form of service

Note that if you are given a PES D grading, it means that more time/tests are required to confirm your medical condition. This normally takes about 2-3 months. However, this duration may be longer depending on your medical condition.
