    Life tests is the term used on the PMS
    Life tests are more than the ITs though, they also include hearing, eyesight and spyro.
    Your medical grade is a number comprised of your 2-digit year of birth followed a single digit for how you did in each test.

    I think LIFE stood for Life Improvement and Fitness Evaluation

    IT - unless my memory is fading - is short for Imlitir TreanĂ¡la (Training Instruction), as Dev said

    When first introduced, in the 80s/early 90s, they were called LIFE tests (an abbreviation of course for what I don't know).

    AFAIK, "ITs" is the Irish abbreviation for Training Instruction (eg TI 07/11).

    My advice for anyone going on a Pot NCO is to work with an NCO at unit level. Ideally a unit run Pre Pot NCO course
