What is it?
The PJFT is a test to assess your level of fitness. You’ll need to complete a 2.4km run on a treadmill, and achieve a minimum standard based on age and gender.
If you’re applying to the Diver Branch you’ll have to complete the run in 10 minutes 30 seconds regardless of your age.
If you’re going to excel at the PJFT (and in your initial training), it’s critical that you get in the best possible physical condition. We’ve put together a training schedule to get your fitness levels to where they should be.
Ideally you need to follow the programme for the full eight weeks prior to joining, so you can get the most out of it – and increase your chances of success. See more about getting Fit to Join here.
