    When you first become a petty officer they go through a class that they teach about your new responsibilties and what not.. As for PRT that is physical rediness test. PFA is Physical fitness assesment.. I am not 100% sure what the difference is. I think PRT is the running and sit ups part and PFA is your weight and what not. for sure


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    PFA is the medical exam you have to get prior to the PRT to make sure you are healthy enough to take it.

    PRT and PFA are the same thing. They just changed the name. Indoc is where they learn everything to do with being a petty officer
