Versed in something

1. He's well-versed in Russian architecture; he's been interested in it since he took a class in college.
2. She has a great interest in renewable energy and is particularly versed in wind power.
3. Tom reads about different cultures all the time, but I hear he is especially versed in Asian cultures and traditions.
4. They told us you're well-versed in European train travel. Can you help us with our itinerary?
5. How versed is he in the latest state regulations? If he's well-versed in it, let's hire him.

Being versed in something means knowing a lot about a subject. It can mean that the person is an expert in the subject.
