Great Eastern Institute of Maritime Studies (GEIMS) is now the first approved maritime training Institution in India to achieve the 'outstanding (A1)' grade. The top grading achieved by GEIMS is for all the three approved pre-sea courses being conducted by the institute.

The Directorate General of Shipping (DGS), Govt. of India has developed a Comprehensive Inspection Program (CIP), integrating and upgrading the existing inspection processes, while introducing an effective grading mechanism for all approved pre-sea maritime training institutes.  To achieve these objectives, necessary guidelines and assessment checklist, identifying the parameters against which every institute is to be graded by a team of experts from the seven DGS recognized IACS organizations on an annual basis was formalized as per DGS Order No. 25 of 2013. The order integrates all other existing inspection processes maritime training institutes are required to undergo on regular  basis. This order was promulgated by DGS on 1st. January 2014.

For the grading process five parameters are prescribed in the DGS CIP checklist. i.e.: in Infrastructure maintenance, Faculty & Human Resource Development, Student Development Programmes (Academics & Personality), On- board Training Records and Overall Performance & Management stability.
 

Accordingly the GEIMS which is based at Lonavala in Maharashtra underwent the CIP Audit/Inspection by a team of four Experts from Indian Register of Shipping on 16th. and 17th. April 2014.  Having been inspected by the team, GEIMS has been evaluated ‘Graded A 1 (Outstanding)’ with overall credit points of 96.2%.
