Checking the password thru Regex via Shell Script

I'm new to shell script. How do I check the password

1)password should have atleast one alpha character and one non-alpha character (0-9 Special)

2)password should not contain three or more repeated alpha numeric characters in a row

Can somebody help me in creating the regular expression for the above conditions
