I wondered whether anyone has any comments on joining the Register of Public Service Interpreters, or the Metropolitan Police's own register. I'm a qualified interpreter (MA), but lacking experience. Is it necessary to follow a course to prepare for the exam? Any comments on the different courses available?

You're probably best off contacting the National Register of Public Service Interpreters, c/o the Institute of Linguists.

I've got all the literature from the IOL and from the Metropolitan Police, on the exam and courses etc. I just wondered if anyone had any comment on the exams, which proved the most useful, whether you can get work without them, etc. I'm already a qualified interpreter, so they may accept me as an interim member.

You have to obtain the Criminal Records Bureau Enhanced Disclosure before joining the Register of Public Service Interpreters according to the thread above. The initiator of the posting had some apparently insoluble problem in that. I hope he has found the solution in the meantime.
