15m Bleep Test Instructions

The 15m bleep test is a maximal running aerobic fitness test, a variation of the 20 meter shuttle run or beep test. This test was developed by Loughborough University in 1995 for the UK Met Police Service. This shorter version was created to cater for those with less room to conduct the longer 20m test, and is used as the aerobic assessment for UK Police and Fire Services. There is also a 15m version of the PACER test, which has different speeds and laps compared to this test. For more information on beep tests, see the complete guide to the beep test.
