In line with this, the applicants who will pass the AFPSAT are qualified to apply for Candidate Soldier, Officer Preparatory Course (OPC), or Officer Candidate Course (OCC) depending on the score they will receive from the said exam. All passers who will be up for the challenge of becoming public servants will be subjected to undergo other mandatory exams such as interviews, physical fitness tests, trade test, physical, medical and neuro-psychiatric exams to determine if they are qualified for training.

According to Major General Jesus A Manangquil Jr AFP, the command encourages the youth, especially those coming from Bicol region to take advantage of this opportunity and eventually become a soldier of Armed Forces of the Philippines who will not only be assured of stable job upon enlistment but also a chance to make difference in the lives of their fellow bicolanos.
