Fitness. AFI 36-2406, paragraph 3.7.5. allows commanders to request EPR closeout extensions of up to 59 days to ensure resolution of any administrative or other significant issues. Approved extensions should be documented by placing the following statement in feedback area in Section V, “Close out date was extended IAW AFI 36-2406, para. 3.7.5.” Other than for fitness testing, extensions are granted only to allow evaluators to document negative behavior, i.e. court-martial actions, investigations, etc. Extensions are not granted to document awards or achievements. Unit commanders may request an extension when Airmen are required to fitness test immediately preceding the EPR closeout date and fails to meet fitness standards. This option can be used to re-test the Airman at the 43d day after scoring “Poor” on the fitness assessment. NOTE: This is the earliest period an Airman can re-test after scoring “Poor” on the fitness assessment test. Use the procedures outlined AFI 36-2406, paragraph 3.7.5. to obtain approval. Extensions beyond this period are not allowed. Extension requests should contain, at a minimum, the ratee's fitness test history (scores/dates) from the portal and significant justification. Please provide justification as to why this case is unique (i.e. profiles, deployments, etc.). Specific medical information is not necessary, but profile limitations are required. If the member does not have a documented profile, IAW AFI 10-248, they are eligible to test. Extensions are not approved solely because one is requested; justification is required. If there were more than 42 days from the failure date to the close out date, include clarification as to why the member did not retest prior to the close out date.
