CD NSmen & NSF
Under the Enlisted Act, all male citizens and permanent residents (PRs) of Singapore are liable for National Service (NS).
Every NS-liable person will be notified by Central Manpower Base (CMPB) through a Registration Notice to register for NS and undergo a thorough medical examination to be medically categorized under the major Physical Employment Status (PES) classification, graded from A to F.
The PES grading will be used as part of the criteria for assignment of vocation during NS. Those who are operationally fit (PES ‘A’ & ‘B’) will be required to take the National Physical Fitness Award (NAPFA) Test. Only those who attain Gold or Silver award will be exempted from the Physical Training Phase (PTP) designed to improve their general fitness.
