yeh mate the fitness standards are 2.4 km in 09.30 mins, 16 dips, 8 chin ups, 40 sit ups. On your aquaint you will do the fitness test, circuits which comprise of jumps from a 6m board then a swim then a short run, thats done 3 times. you will also do a 1km swim with a dry suit and fins as a squad and also an endurace event which when i done it was a 5 mile run with the pti. its not too hard but it certainky isnt easy so i would train for the specific tests you're going to be doing. I would say if you can run 2.4 km in 9 mins then your laughing mate.
