Professional development

The Nepal Press Institute (NPI) is a non-governmental journalist training institution. It was established in 1984 and runs a 10-month journalism training course for aspiring journalists. It also runs a one-month writing and interviewing skills course in its Regional Media Resource Centres in Biratnagar, eastern Nepal and Nepalgunj, western Nepal. 

Many institutions, such as the Centre for Investigative Journalism and the Sancharika Samuha (Group of Women Communicators) run short-term journalism courses but they are not regular and their availability depends upon the funding by the donor agencies.
