  1. I am also interested in this subject as I am currently training as a special for the met, I wanted to apply to be a regular but did not have a second language as it was required at the time. I am a bit concerned now as it sounds like to become a regular I will need to do all the training again from scratch which seems crazy, so do I apply to become a regular at the same time as a special or wait until I am ips then apply ? It seems pointless waiting another year just to get ips if the only difference is I wont need ckp I would rather pay the 1000 and get started quicker I am not a young special by any means and time is running out any suggestions on the best plan of action guys ?

  4. Thanks sir95 I am 41 and I am starting the specials intesive course for the met on the 9th of may I think I am the oldest one on that intake, I am also worried about the studying side of thing after not being at school for 25 years do you have any advice to help with the exams I have paid for an onine revision service where you can take mock kee1 2 and 3 exams there is def a lot to take in. My ultimate goal is to become a regular but at the time the met had the second language campaign running so I went for the specials gonna hopefuly pass training and get my head down get my ips and then try and get in that way good luck with your new career mate.
