It is your responsibility to show up at the SPAT in excellent health and physical condition without any injuries or any types of splint to maintain or support part of a limb and without any forms of protection.
According to the studies and recommendations from Health Canada and the Association québécoise des médecins du sport (document in French only), the consumption of energy drinks during physical and sports activities is strongly discouraged.
Consequently, it is strictly forbidden to consume any types of energy drink before the standardized physical abilities test (SPAT).
If one of the instructors involved in the administration of the SPAT is of the opinion that your state of health or physical condition may entail risks of injury or put your health at risk, he will refer you to the coordinator of the activity. After consulting the nurse on site, he could terminate your test.
The École nationale de police du Québec is not liable for any injuries that may occur during the SPAT-ENPQ. You will be required to complete and sign a document to that effect upon arrival at the ENPQ.
