I am overwhelmed to see the state of art training facilities specially Ship-In-Campus and Workshops. This A-1 grade Institution under CIP is a role model for others. I wish all the best in all its success of the management and students and learned faculties of this institution.

This was really a good & memorable visit to both of your Institutes. Post Sea Institute with an excellent infrastructure is at very prime locations in the city. To see the ship-in-campus at pre sea campus with all actual Engine equipments & machinery, and the mock-up facilities, at the bank of river appear to be really commendable facilities through which the cadets are being trained. The other thing which I would also like to appreciate is the Institutes efforts for just not making the profits but also its endeavor to impart quality training to the incoming aspirants. Institute is also now a first double CIP graded A1 Institute in India which may further be publicized for attracting the better & more number of aspirants.

This is yet another instance of reformed process in which DGS is trying to systemize various training and education program"

Mr. Shri Deepak Shetty IAS, Joint DG

“HIMT team strives for highest training standards and has conducted pre-sea courses responsibly. The college has a robust system in place for output monitoring and continuous improvement, placing it among the select few maritime training institutes, who respond to a changing maritime environment and bring the best value to its stakeholders. It has been an opportunity for us, too.
I proudly announce that the outcome of this inspection has been very positive and HIMT has been assigned A1 rating which stands for OUTSTANDING”

The atmosphere in HIMT is vibrant and conducive to introducing the best of new technology whilst retaining the age old maritime traditions,

Sanjeev Vakil is a low profile man with a high potential institute where lot of quality and value addition is present. We sponsor most of the members of our floating staff for courses in HIMT. In fact, our office superintendents also attend courses here, and many a times I too visit HIMT for upgradation course.

Mr. V. Ganapathi Rao, VP Technical, Goodearth Maritime Ltd

Sanjeev Vakil is doing an excellent job, especially when it comes to post-sea training. I’ve heard that his training quality is good, and there is no doubt about it. Chennai is an important Indian maritime centre and Sanjeev, through HIMT, is playing a vital role inmaritime training there. Further, he has always been supportive of the Institute of Marine Engineers India (IMEI) and its activities.

Dr. BK Saxena, Principal-Tolani Maritime Institute (TMI) & President-IMEI

Sanjeev Vakil is an innovative entrepreneur and astute businessman cooled with a strong sense of professional responsibility and foresight. In the field of maritime training he has excelled remarkably well.

Capt. Rajesh Tandon, MD-V.Ships & Operations Director-V.Group Manpower Services

Sanjeev Vakil started HIMT in a very small way and has built it up to be one of the biggest maritime institutes in India- all this because of his sheer hard work and forthright vision. Candidates completing their pre and post sea education at HIMT have always had a good word for the Institute and Sanjeev. My best wishes are always with him for continuing the good work in maritime education.

Capt. Shyam Jairam, Director, Seaarland Management Services (India)

Congratulations to Sanjeev Vakil for making it on the Cover of Maritime Matrix. I have seen his commendable efforts over the years to promote maritime training in our country and he certainly deserves this accolade. I wish him and his entire team at HIMT the very best for the future.

Mr. Kaushik Seal, Head of Systems Certification-Hub India, Germanischer Lloyd

Sanjeev Vakil is a very versatile personality with many firsts to his credit in the field of maritime education. He remains humble and rooted to the ground despite the successes he has achieved. This, in itself, is no small measure due to his persevering nature,unstinted hard work and an honest approach towards teaching and training.

Capt. Mohan Naik, Director-Dynacom Tankers Management

Ever since I attended a revalidation course at HIMT around the year 2000, I have held Sanjeev Vakil in the highest professional regard. His attention to detail, his clear commitment and his obvious pursuit of excellence have taken HIMT to a premier position today- I am not surprised at this.

Capt. Manu Mahajan, Columnist, Editor, Corporate & Maritime Trainer, Consultant

Sanjeev Vakil has done a marvelous and enviable job of creating a Mariners Training Institute that has steadily expanded- coveringall pre and post-sea courses. He has improved quality and systems based on feedback from the participants/trainees and are proactive- having many experienced mariners in his team and on call.

HIMT’s popularity is evidenced by those attending revalidation courses from the length and breadth of the country.

Capt. S Pullat, Proprietor, Aumni Shipping Consultants & Professional Maritime Group

I have known Sanjeev for over 20 years now As a chief engineer with Sanmar he had come to me expressing his desire and intentions of starting a business of his own. It was apt at that time that HIMT became a reality. His passion, dedication to make it succeed, his families' involvement and his acute business sense are proof today of HIMT's success story.
A true professional who has given all his life and time to the industry, soft spoken, amiable and pleasant by nature Sanjeev can be proud of his achievements. I wish him and HIMT well to make positive strides for greater glory.

"Sanjeev Vakil has to be admired for his sheer dedication and commitment. He is bound to make us proud in the maritime Industry and take HIMT to great heights"

"I am the happiest person when I see Sanjeev doing well.Am Very proud to see the Campus and his achievements.I will return to see further progress."

Mr. K. Shankar, President-Shipping, The India Cements Ltd

I know Sanjeev since 1998, when we were doing a Training of Trainers and Assessors (TOTA) course together. There's no doubt that Vakil has come up the hard way and he is doing quite well with competency courses. Indeed, I marvel at the way he has expanded to a sprawling campus from a small place. I wish him all the best for his future endeavors.

Capt. Srirang Manjeshwar, Director-Training, Wallem Maritime Training, India

Sanjeev Vakil has shown great business acumen, team building and leadership skills in developing HIMT to become India's leadingmaritime training institution. His dedication and zeal to attain his goals have taken HIMT to a pinnacle position among institutes in India. Having followed the growth of HIMT at close quarters since its inception, I have no doubt in my mind that, with Sanjeev at the helm with his committed team, HIMT will soon become the premier training institution in the maritime world.

Mr. K. Chidambaram, MD, Chidambaram Ship care PVT Ltd, Chairman, Chidambaram Institute of Maritime Technology, Past President, IMEI

I've had the privilege of teaching at HIMT many years ago- a fine academy that Chennai is proud of Sanjeev Vakil’s genuine commitment to deliver a good and consistent quality of maritime training to HIMT’s student is commendable. He is a great role model of how good business is synonymous with quality training and education. I wish HIMT the very best of success inthe years to come.

Capt. Sivaraman Krishnamurthi

Sanjeev Vakil is a 'seafarer entrepreneur' with an innovative mind and vision for the future. He is one of the first to use modern training technology at his institute. Sanjeev is a successful and enterprising Indian businessman in maritime training. Further, the growth of HIMT has been exemplary- keeping high training standards intact.

Capt. Inderveer Solanki, VP-Academics & Research, ARI, and Project Manager, NINI

When HIMT was established in 1998 I was the Principal Officer, MMD Chennai. At that time I was also the Chairman of the Southern Academic Council (under DGS) – which was responsible for inspection and approval of all institutes, including HIMT. I’ve seen this Institute grow from strength to strength with Mr Vakil's perseverance, diligence and devotion- to the cause of maritime training.

"Today I have the previlage to visit this beautiful institute on the request of Shri. Vakil. Incidentally, I happened to be involved in approval of various courses in its initial stages as P.O. MMD Chennai. It is really unbelievable that the institute has grown from strength to strength. The premises is excellent and facilities and arrangement are of top class. This has only possible because of Shri Vakils hard work and uncompromising attitude towards quality and lastly but not least, the grace of god. To me, it is the best maritime institute in India. I wish him and the institute all the best. Keep it up."
