I found out about CMC Maritime Academy via Google when I was searching for Maritime Colleges in Chennai to do one of the short courses. I was particularly impressed by the location of the institute as it was close to where I stay in Chennai. On visiting the institute, it was nice to note that this institute was well kept and operated by Professional people. The ease of registering and the help in doing so was excellent.
The delivery of the course was done by very learned and professional staff. Even though I am a Master with over 20 years of experience, I take back new knowledge gained after this course.
Keep up the good work CMC and I wish you all the best.
