Green Pass BPFA???

#1
I am on a course next week and part of the entry requirement is a Green Pass on your BPFA as TA category B we don't really do BPFA's and our PTI doesn't really know. What is a green pass???

Currently i do 44 press ups with about 20 seconds to spare - but i need all of that time to recover!! and 53 sit ups in 2 min and i run my 1.5 miles in 9.35 mins. Is that a green pass??

Cheers guys

Alright mate, you can find the BPFA requirements if you click this link, go to resources and click Basic Personal Fitness Assessment.

That's not a BPFA mate, that's what you do at the Recruit Selection Centre. A BPFA is a Basic Personal Fitness Assessment, which is something you do twice a year once you're in the Army. :) :wink:

Can`t seem to get this link to work.

Would somebody be so kind as to tell me what scores I need to get a `green` as a 36 year old?

I thought Green/Amber/Red all went out of the window years ago?

You may well be right.

I just need to try & find out how fast I have to run the 1.5 miles..how many sit ups & press ups (or whatever) I need to do, in order to pass as a 36 year old male. Can anyone advise me?

11:30 on the run. Somewhere around 41 press ups and 48 sit ups IIRC.

It's just pass or fail now. The green, amber, red has gone out the window along with the title BPFA. It's now a Personal Fitness Test.

For a 36 year old male you need to do 39 press ups in 2 minutes, followed by 43 sit-ups in 2 minutes and then run 2.4 km (mile and a half) in less than 11 min 30 secs or reach level 9.4 on the 'beep-test'.
