    I signed up 18 months ago but had a few medical issues to get through. I’ve Just been given a date for my pjft, when speaking at my AFCO he said that there is an aquaint day at Liverpool on the 9th April and said that I can do my pjft while I’m there. He said they’ve just got new pti’s there and would be done outside. Just wondering if anyone knows of this happening before or if it’s just started? Cheers.

    I've heard of this before - as long as a pti is there, then It can count as your actual pjft. Might be worth doing, even if it is for the feedback given by the pti, which will undoubtedly help.
    Depends if you like a treadmill or not really!

    I’d say I prefer a treadmill. Only because I live in the Lake District so I can’t really get a good flat outdoor run like it is on the waterside in Liverpool.

    Lake district is incredible mate! Went hiking there with my friend; Good place to get the hill sprints going ;)

    Stick with a regular pjft then. Practice hard and let us all know how you do.

    All the best.
