IMC, based out of Chennai, is a Maritime Training Institute approved by the Directorate General of Shipping in India. It was 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.
