This work gives an overview of the past and current situation regarding education and training initiatives in radiation protection. The paper focuses on the current 7th framework programme ENETRAP II, which aims at developing reference standards and good practices for education and training programmes for radiation protection experts and officers, reflecting the needs of these professionals in all sectors where ionising radiation is applied. The introduction of a radiation protection training passport as a mean to facilitate efficient and transparent European mutual recognition of these professionals is another ultimate deliverable of this project. It is envisaged that the outcome of ENETRAP II will be instrumental for the cooperation between regulators, training providers and customers (nuclear industry, research, non-nuclear industry, etc.) in reaching harmonisation of the requirements for, and the education and training of, radiation protection experts and officers within Europe, and will stimulate building competence and career development in radiation protection to meet the demands of the future.
