About us

Indian Maritime College (IMC) based out of Chennai-India, is a D.G Shipping approved training institute founded in 1993 by highly experienced Marine Radio Officers, who foresaw the emerging simulation technology and the power of Simulator training.

With a motto of "Training Thru Simulation" IMC has focused primarily on harnessing the power of software simulations and artificial intelligence to provide hands on training for various elements of Communication, Navigation and Cargo Handling.

Recognizing simulator based training as the driving force of the future training requirements, IMC ventured into developing training simulators and pioneered the simulation training in India. This is evident from the following facts:
