The BRTI does not provide academic courses – this is the function of universities and colleges in the region. However, the BRTI does commit to assisting scientists in Zimbabwe and the region to acquire skills to enable them to compete effectively in the international scientific community. To achieve this goal, the BRTI has since its founding been responsible for the design and delivery of appropriate training courses to develop research capacity in specific areas.
BRTI TRAINING COURSES
All courses are given an evaluation, using closed and open questionnaires, so that they can be evaluated and improved. The BRTI is in the process of making course materials available on-line, to further disseminate skills to researchers in the region.

TRAINING AT BRTI SINCE 1995
In 2005 and again in 2010 the BRTI successfully competed for an NIH/FIC International Clinical Operational Health Service Research Training Award in HIV & TB (ICOHRTA). This award has enabled the BRTI to provide direct support for over 40 postgraduate research scientists, attached to different research projects and registered with universities in Zimbabwe, and also 15 Clinical Fellowships that provide support for postgraduates in clinical medicine. The award also enables BRTI to host training courses to develop research skills. There have, since 1995, been over 1500 participants including many from the southern Africa region as well as Zimbabwe.
