Governor to highlight skills goal and importance of training Maryland’s workforce


ANNAPOLIS, MD (September 17, 2012) – TOMORROW at 2:30 p.m., Governor Martin O’Malley will continue the “Jobs and Opportunity” Tour by visiting the BioTechnical Institute of Maryland.

This stop on the tour will highlight Maryland’s highly-skilled and educated workforce as the key to competing in a rapidly-changing 21st century economy. The Administration has set a strategic goal to increase the number of Marylanders who receive skills training by 20 percent by the end of 2012.

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.
