BTI BioSTART to Laboratory Associates Program

BTI offers tuition free training to un and under employed Baltimore city residents who are high school graduates or have earned their G.E.D. Those interested in the program must be highly motivated with an interest in science and pursuing a new career path in the vibrant biotechnical industry. The total Laboratory Assosciates program timeframe spans six months, and participants must make the commitment to attend classes, study, be actively involved in their academic success, and complete an 100 hour paid internship.

BTI training begins with BioSTART and progresses onto the Laboratory Associates Program.  The BioSTART component of the BTI curriculum consists of a 12 week bridge program designed to advance participants’ knowledge in basic math, communication and professional development, each presented under the purview of the bio/lab based industry.

Upon completion of BioSTART pre-training, participants progress onto the more technical hands-on bench skills in the Laboratory Associate Program which includes classroom instruction, hands on laboratory training, guest speakers for the bioscience industry and an 100 hour internship at an area bioscience employer.
