The Training Division at the BRDB plays a vital role in ensuring skills development amongst BRDB staff and beneficiaries. Through the provision of training courses, at the four training institutes of the BRDB, and by arranging for foreign courses, study tours, symposiums and seminars, it ensures that BRDB staff are well-skilled in the requirements of their jobs.
In addition to institutional training, the Training Division manages all local level training for beneficiaries. At Upazila level, through Upazila Central Training Centres, training is offered on income generating activities, Women's empowerment, awareness development, environmental sustainability and a whole host of other knowledge and skill development areas.
Residential training is yet another method through which officers and staff at the BRDB are provided the opportunity to develop their skills.
