Fleet Management Training Institute
Fleet management Training Institute (FMTI) was founded in 1997 as part of the training division of Fleet Management Limited with an aim to provide basic familiarization to staff joining the ships operated by the company. With the increase in strength of the fleet, the need to expand the activities in training was felt and in the year 2003, the training institute was expanded to accommodate training of a larger number of ship staff using state of the art simulators and audio visual aids. The training institute is administered under a non-profit making body called Fleet Management Maritime Education Trust. The trust was established by its chairman Mr. Kishore S. Rajvanshy, Managing Director of Fleet Management Limited.
