I am looking for information about any short or online course for training interpreters in the UK. Unfortunately I live in Glasgow so it is not convenient for me to do a full postgrad, nor do I have the money.

DPSI (Doploma in Public Service Interpreting) Apr 20, 2009

Hi,

Global Language Services in Glasgow used to provide some sort of DPSI training.
I had a quick look at their website but can't find the details.

They are also an official examination centre for both the Diploma in Translation (listed in the Charted Institute of Linguists list of external examination centres).

Probably best to contact them directly or else you can contact the Chartered Institute of Linguists for a list of course providers.

Stevenson College in Edinburgh also run a DPSI course (one day per week).

Good luck!

Found it - on the homepage!! Apr 20, 2009

Maybe a bit out of date, but I'm pretty sure the course is still available:

Diploma in Public Service Interpreting

Distance Learning



Global Language Services Ltd will be offering the Diploma in Public Service Interpreting on a distance learning basis starting October 2006, for the June 2007 examination diet.



For this session we will only be offering the Scottish Law and English Law option and we hope to offer all language combinations covered by this examination.

TOPIC STARTER
DPSI - valid outside the UK? Apr 20, 2009

Due to the nature of the exam topics I have always assumed it was not and I plan on working abroad.
Thanks
