BioTechnical Institute of Maryland

The BioTechnical Institute of Maryland, Inc. (BTI) was founded in 1998 as a non-profit 501 (c)(3) corporation, to fill a need for specialty scientific training of entry-level biotechnicians for employment in Maryland’s rapidly expanding biotechnology industry. The BTI Laboratory Associates Program provides tuition-free training in basic laboratory skills to bright, ambitious, unemployed and under-employed Maryland residents. A combination of classroom instruction, and on-the-job work experience, enables BTI’s successful graduates to realize employment options, while employers benefit from a stream of ready-for-hire, well-qualified lab technicians.
Enrollees of this program are mature, ambitious high school graduates, who have the desire to improve their job prospects by learning basic, in-demand lab skills. Many local companies currently employ our graduates.
