In 1984, Biman Management took advantage of an ICAO/UNDP offer to set up an apprentice training school at the current location of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport. The UNDP/ICAO assistance to set up Apprentice Training School was utilized to build a proper and full-fledged training centre for the national carrier.

BATC provides training in the faculty of Operations Technical, Avionics Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Customer Services, Marketing & Sales and Management Development.

Maintenance Engineers of BATC work in different corners of the world, such as, USA, Canada, Middle-east, Australia and the East-Asian region. BATC also provides type maintenance courses (F-28, DC10-30, Airbus A310, Boeing 737 and Boeing 777) on airframe, Engine, Electrical, Instrument and Radio-Radar categories for developing Biman’s manpower for its growing fleet. Additionally, BATC conducts courses on Human Performance and Limitations, Air-Legislation, System Engineering, Quality & Audit, Engineering Planning etc. All of these basic & type maintenance courses and other courses are approved by the national Civil Aviation Authority.
