    CIMeT is approved by the Directorate of General Shipping, Government of India as a recognised institution for converting Graduate and Diploma Engineers into Marine Engineers as per the requirements of Directorate of Shipping and confirming to STCW1995 convention Chidambaram Institute of Maritime Technology (CIMeT) was established in 1997 under the CSC Trust as a dedicated Institution, catering to the training needs of the Maritime Industry.
    Our parent company Chidambaram Shipcare Pvt Ltd has been in the Ship repair business since 1978, and was in fact the first Indian Ship repair Company to be certified to the ISO 9002 Quality Standards.
    Since 1990 onwards Chidambaram Shipcare has been carrying out Marine Engineer Training with the approval of the Director General of Shipping, Govt. of India.
    As new regulations and tighter standards came into force under the STCW 95 ( an international training and certification code) CIMeT was created as a full fledged separate Training Institution.

For centuries man has gone out to sea in the most primitive of ships, and despite a hard, unforgiving life, found a great deal of joy and fulfillment. Today, albeit ships being technological marvels, the call of the sea for some is as primitive and strong as it was for our forefathers. Notwithstanding material comforts, ease of communications and a good salary, life at sea is still tough. Yet the level of maturity and self reliance one gets within a short time of working at sea, can never be achieved elsewhere. Having chosen a career at sea, one does not have to remain an old sea dog, unfit for jobs ashore, unless one chooses to. The qualifications, skill and experience one gets at sea are much in demand ashore and with 10 to 15 years experience at sea, one can easily slip into a senior management position ashore.
