Training and research are two important and key factors to improve any country’s development. In this regard, the building and road industries are not an exception. The science and technology have increasingly grown in recent decades such that considering the specialized training as one of the development tools seems to be necessary for adaptation with the changes. Research also can find its real identity and status along with proper training.
According to Article 2 of the Statute of BHRC, organizing conferences, seminars and training courses in cooperation with the relevant organizations is one of the tasks of BHRC. In this regard, Training Vice Presidency planned the first training seminar called “Types of Concrete and its application in building construction” in 1986 and officially launched its activities since November 1987 in cooperation with Technical Faculty of Tehran University, and is proud of organizing about 1,000 training courses, technical seminars, national and international conferences during more than three decades providing remarkable services to the engineering community of the Country.
