INTRODUCTION:

Training Institute (TI) of Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission (BAEC) was established at the premises of Atomic Energy Research Establishment (AERE) under an ADB project titled “Institute for Nuclear Science and Technology: i. Training Institute & Laboratory facilities ii.Tandem Accelerator Facilities” of the Ministry of Science and Information & Communication Technology during July’2006 to June’ 2011. Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission (BAEC) has a long and impressive history of manpower training in various fields of nuclear related technologies, like, Non Destructive Testing (NDT), Nuclear Safety and Radiation Control (NSRC), Nuclear medicine, Electronics, etc. through arrangement of training programmes in respective Institutes, Centres and Divisions as there was no full fledged training Institute at BAEC. There was a Training Division of BAEC in a very limited scale headed by a director and a nominal number of staffs in BAEC headquarter. The Division was primarily responsible for arranging BNOC courses once in a year and undertaking nomination formalities of BAEC officers and staffs for local training courses in other domestic training facilities out side BAEC. However, all relevant departure formalities of foreign trainings such as RC, TC, MEXT, IAEA etc. are usually accomplished by the International Affairs Division (IAD) of BAEC. Apart from training of the manpower in the above mentioned nuclear technologies, this Training Institute will also be used to train the manpower for establishment of the proposed Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (RNPP) of 2 units with capacities of 1000MW each at Pabna, Bangladesh.
