i was just wondering, in the PJFT test does a supervisor guy (dont know what to call him *text deleted*) show you what speed to go at or alter the speed for you so you get within the minimum time or do you have to do it yourself? :albert:

No. I dont think they touch the speed. You have to make it as comptable as possible and get the score to achieve a pass.
I dont think they will stand behind you and watch but you wont be able to cheat. Once you finish they will send the results to the AFCO.

well if anyone is based at the AFCO at Queen Street in Glasgow you do your PJFT in LA Fitness. The guy told me that i'd need to run at minimum speed in order to complete it in time... To run the first 1.5 miles the minimum speed is 7.6 mph. when doing the second 1.5 miles the minimum speed required is 8.6 mph

The PT changed the speeds on mine.

He had been in RT before so he told me what speed i should be doing and when to increase the speed. He increased the speeds aswell so i just ran *text deleted*.

I am 1 of those 'supervisor people' that take the PJFTs *text deleted* and its different for each of us. Some will tel you what speeds, some wont, some will change the speed and some wont!

i do both *text deleted* it makes more sense to me if u know what speeds to run at and when to increase it, and its not always the easiest thing to change the speed while running fast and trying not 2 accidently hit the stop button!

we do have to stand there and watch while you run tho to make sure people dont cheat

Just multiply the values by 1.6. You need a minimum speed or 11.6kph and 14kph to pass

For those that missed it on a recent similar thread:

The speed for the first half of the pjft should be set at the slowest constant speed to enable the candidate to complete the test in under 12 mins 30 secs. This is to simulate the squad run & candidates are warned not to attempt a faster pace iniitially in case they fail to complete the second run.

(apologies for repeating thiis but people are still getting it wrong)
