Todate the Institute has been offering training to staff of the Bank of Tanzania, Banks and Financial Institutions in the country and SADC Central Bank employees.

Each year the Institute conducts a total of about 30 courses.


Capacity building process cannot be complete without deliberate move to build official strategic alliances with well-founded and resourceful institutions of learning. In this view the Institute is building alliances with the Reserve Bank of South Africa Training College, Graduate Institute of Studies – Geneva, Reserve Bank of India Training College and the IMF Institute. It is expected that this alliance will reinforce and strengthen the training capacity of the Institute.


Courses are presented on a modular basis which may be linked to one another or presented as specialized stand-alone courses/workshops. The BoT Training Institute is prepared to share its expertise and training infrastructure with other Central Banks in the SADC region.


The Training Institute focuses on the following success factors:

  • Client satisfaction
  • Quality programmes
  • Superior understanding of Central Banking activities
  • Effective delivery of programmes
