The DPSI is a degree equivalent qualification that is seen as the ‘gold’ standard for interpreters. It has a very low pass rate even for experienced interpreters so at Learn Q we wouldn’t recommend even attempting it without a minimum of a Level 3 Certificate in Community Interpreting and 2 years professional interpreting experience, otherwise you would probably spend 12 months and £1000 or more working toward an exam that you are likely to fail. To be successful at the DPSI, we recommend you study the Level 3 Certificate in Community Interpreting, gain 2 years work experience and then if you still wish to obtain this qualification to take a thorough course, practice your skills daily and then attempt the DPSI. Realistically the journey is likely to take 4 or more years and some never make it.
