In answer to the need for a harmonized approach of education and training (E&T) programs in radiation protection and, based on that, the mutual recognition for radiation protection courses and the acquired competencies of Qualified Experts, the ENETRAP project made a study of the current European E&T issues. The results of this study lead to a proposal for harmonized programs for both the educational part and the training in radiation protection. These recommendations are based on the answers of almost all European countries to a vast questionnaire inquiring information on (i) numbers of RPEs different sectors dealing with ionizing radiation, (ii) identification of practices, (iii) national E&T needs and capabilities, (iv) regulatory requirements and (v) recognition, a study on the need and effectiveness of on-the-job training (OJT), a study on the approach of e- and distance learning tools and a study of the EU and IAEA requirements and syllabi for Qualified Experts. In this way ENETRAP will provide the fundamentals on which the European umbrella organisation EUTERP can build the organisation, follow-up and recognition of E&T programs, which will contribute to an enhanced mobility of workers, teachers and students throughout the European countries.
