    One of the best institute for 2nd mate and mates exam preparation I had done mate exam preparation and very good experience . They are teaching from base and clear all your doubts.The teachers are very helpfull, friendly, and experienced. One of the best Institute to join for those who requires assistance in order to clear their exams and orals

    Few best things about the CMG and the instructors

    They are completely dedicated towards teaching.Time is not a issue at all.What i have noticed first time in India that they are solving each & every questions of past competency papers with proper solution & correct answer.Once they explain & solve the problem the candidate is not going to have any doubt whether the answer is right or wrong. They are ready to explain as many times the candidate wants with better explanation every time. I would say that even a weakest student can get a positive result but personal effort is must.They can give their maximum but our maximum is required to get the 'Pass' result in first attempt. Very friendly and comfortable atmosphere for each & every student. Hats off to CMG !


    Attended the phase 1 and 2 preparation courses from cmg.its the worth money you invest and best place to study and prepare for the competency exams. Cmg have experienced faculties who have vast experience of more than 7 years in teaching and exam preparation for competency exams.all batches consist of 10 to 12 candidates which helps to clear all the doubts.faculties are approachable at all materials provided from institute has covered whole syllabus and precise to exam preparation.mock test provided at end of the courses provide confidence prior appearing mmd exams.even the online sessions conducted by cmg is also helpful for the candidates (outside mumbai) for the exam preparation.i found cmg courses very helpful for preapring and clearing mmd exams .

    Be SMART join CMG: It would save your lots of precious time.

    CMG is the best institute for clearing MMD Exams. My learning experience had been amazing, I cleared Mate’s Phase-I in my first attempt with only 2 months of preparations which I am sure I wouldn’t have had achieved with my preparations alone. An institute you can trust blindly for 100% guaranteed success. - Teaching Faculty has more than 7 years of teaching experience. Very knowledgeable, helpful, supporting, and approachable and hard working. - Batches are small in the group (10-12), (You have more time to clear your doubts). - Weak students get more personal attention compared to the best ones. - Teaching methods are highly result oriented (You don’t have to think anything about your syllabus or topics etc). - Study materials are precise, concise and to the point. I am really very thankful to Vinit Sir and Deepam Sir for their excellent guidance and I wish all the best to CMG for bright future 👍👍

    Simply "THE BEST"

    I approached CMG after hearing rave reviews from friends and even fellow officers onboard,after my 1st meeting with Deepam Sir i was sure i wanted to join them.I cleared my Phase-1 exams in first attempt after studying here,Deepam Sir & Vinit Sir always guided me with smile.The atmosphere to study & studying methods suggested by them are great.Its definitely worth every penny you invest & above all simply "THE BEST".
