Need info on Compression and Leakdown testing!

Hi NAM!
Can anyone lead me to a how to for Pacemans/ Countrymans on leakdown/ compression testing? I have a 2013 JCW Paceman with 25K miles and was wanting to know how to do a leakdown and compression test. Does anyone know the procedures or has done it and can inform me or lead me to the right direction?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

-Iris

i've never done a leak down test. but compression test is pretty straight forward. on cold engine the numbers are lower than hot engine. the number i see on my engines range from 170 to 190 psi.
