    How was the vPJFT set out? Is there any info on where your phone should be positioned, how did you play the bleep audio etc. Cheers and well done on the pass.

    My son has just passed vPJFT this afternoon.

    We used two iPhones, one on a tripod for the link to the assessor, showing the activity area with a side-on view of my son when carrying out the activities. The second was connected by Bluetooth to a speaker to have enough volume for my son to hear and the assessor.

    Had to make a shade though for the phones as it was extremely hot in our garden and I was scared the phone would shut down due to overheating.

    Sound check carried out with the Cpl and he did a could of reps of each exercise first to confirm correct methods used.

    Just waiting for a date to get rid of him now.

    Sorry smashlegs, didn’t make that 100% clear in my post, one phone used to communicate with the assessor and one phone to play the YouTube vPJFT audio track through Bluetooth speaker.

    Just put my laptop on a cushion at 1 end of the lounge so that the whole room was visible, then played the test on my phone and connected it to a Bluetooth speaker to make sure it was loud enough. It's all pretty clear in the instructions they send out.
