In an effort to ensure the highest standards of education and training within the three schools, the CMI has adopted relevant quality assurance measures. The University Council of Jamaica (UCJ) provides the quality framework for the entire programme offerings for the School of Academic Studies. The offerings of the Marine and Professional Studies School are authorized by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The Institute’s Quality Management System (QMS) is ISO 9001:2008 certified. With a view to ensuring quality standards of training in the Advanced Studies School, National Council on Technical and Vocational Education and Training (NCTVET) accreditation status has been attained by the Institute. The accreditation of these programmes is one bench mark of excellence that the institution upholds. There are global shortages in the maritime field and to this end, the CMI operates a very active and proactive placement unit for the benefits of its graduates with the right attitude and aptitude. These are qualities, among others, that the Institute inculcates in its graduates.
