Summary/Abstract: The article tackles the main problems related to the specific environment of initial and continuous training of technicians, specialists and experts in the area of forensic science. It has to be notice that the forensic scientists are a special category of personnel of Police and that they can only develop under the umbrella of law enforcement (there is also a category of "independent forensic scientists", working within the areal of Ministry of Justice, but this domain has nothing to do with initial training of such personnel). Also, the main terms and notions used in this domain are carefully explained and defined, for a better understanding and delimitation of the area - due to the fact that currently there are many concept misunderstood, aspect mainly caused by different media surces to present forensic science as a simple domain, with spectacular results in a very short time frame - aspect which as fake as nocive. The authors are also presenting the Romanian realities related to the system of training this type of personnel, from the point of view of the institutions with attributes of training (Romanian Police Academy, cadet schools, other institutions dedicated to continuous training etc.), along with some aspects related to the tendencies from other countries. The conclusions are intended to bring up the main advantages, as well as the flaws of the training system, as well as proposals linked to possible enhancements, tacking also the tendencies from different sources to promote the concepts linked to the private section of forensic scientists - thus eliminating the so-called monopoly of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
