Cornwall Police Service - Constable Applicants
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.
