20 Meter SHUTTLE RUN - Certificate of Performance

In this test, you run back and forth between two marked lines over a 20-metre course in time with taped audio signals. The time permitted at the beginning of the test to cover the 20-meter distance requires a slow jog. Thereafter, for each 20-metres, the time between audio signals lessens, requiring that you pick up your running pace. The audio signal informs you of the “stage” you are at as the test progresses.

In each leg of the shuttle run, warning lines, placed 2 metres before each of the 20-metre end lines, must be reached before the permitted time elapses and the audio signal sounds.

An examiner will caution you if you fail to cross a warning line in time. The test ends when you miss two consecutive warning lines or when your achieve level 7.0.

To successfully complete the minimum requirement of the aerobic fitness test you must achieve Stage 7.0 in the 20-meter Shuttle Run.  

Level seven (7) is the standard for Lateral Transfer Applicants and for several police and para-police services such as the Cornwall Community Police Service and the OPP.

Candidates registering for this test will be provided  a 'Certificate of Performance' confirming the level achieved during testing.

The Police Fit Canada 20 Meter Shuttle Run - 'Certificate of Performance' provides candidates the opportunity to have a certified record of performance during testing.  This 'Certificate of Performance' confirms the level achieved and is required when applying as a lateral transfer or a new hire.  (ie. Cornwall Community Police Service)


Due to the nature of our service we rely on the number of registrations for staffing, booking of facilities and operations.

You are choosing a spot for a testing that has a limited number of spaces. You will NOT be reimbursed once registered.

Please only book when you are positive you will be available on the date and at the time that YOU are selecting. We wish you much success.
