Honestly anything can be considered not job orientated but you need something that you are capable of examing performence for everyone. If I go up on a meritorious board they will probably not look at the quals I have for my job but look at the basic military appearence, knowledge and physical fitness. You may see it as out dated but there is a purpose even as trivial as it may be

They are slowly phasing out the older APFT and introducing the new one, which consists of an obstacle course and pull-ups, etc. IMHO the old test was more for gauging someone's military appearance, because we all know, running two miles in PTs in nothing like running in full kit. Granted, nowadays some of the new privates coming in can't even pass this one, so I don't think it matters if it's combat related or not, being out of shape is the norm for most new privates which is completely unacceptable and pathetic if you ask me.
