Physical Capacity Profile

The Physical Capacity Profile® (PCP) is a comprehensive strength testing system. This test is administered through a proven, computerized software for post-offer or pre-employment physical exams.

Unlike other pre-employment strength tests, the PCP includes 28 strength measurements from different areas of the body given at maximum effort. A typical PCP is collected in 30 minutes or less. Results are available to the employer within seconds of completing the test. 

The medical information is obtained and measured utilizing standards from the Department of Labor’s (DOL) five strength classifications of work and the American Medical Association (AMA) guidelines. Additionally, the PCP Testing System is ADA and HIPAA compliant and has successfully undergone Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) audits.
