You may want to contact Oregon's DPSST, they spent a ton of money, time, and research working on the ORPAT and now it is the standard for the state.

I attended the October 8th meeting, and I have to have some input by this coming Monday. I think the only job specific task I had when I applied was a trigger pull with left and right hands. Everything else were the situps, pushups, distance run, etc. So since it is only job specific now, we have to come up with these tasks. After all of the mumbo jumbo at first in the meeting, initially we've come up a car push, 300 meter run, jumping over a fence, jumping through a window and a body drag. Remember, as much as I would love for these tasks to weed out the riff raff, it seems like most will be able to pass due to potential lawsuits. Any suggestions?
