This article gives a presentation of a one-semester course for interpreters at the University of Bergen. The course has been financed by the Directorate of Immigration and the target group for the course is interpreters working as Public Services Interpreters. The course is organized as a part-time study (50%) over two semesters. The students live all over Norway and therefore the classes are given partly on our e-learning platform, Lingo, and partly by lectures and workshops in Bergen at weekends. At the website we give lessons on communication and translation theory, ethics for interpreters and terminology. At the workshops in Bergen the students are trained in interpretation techniques working in groups with role-plays, and they receive lectures from specialists within for instant Medicin, Phsycology, Law, Policework and Terminology. During 2003 and 2004 we have admitted 147 students with ten different interpretation languages.
