The Story of CIIM

The journey to the top is often full of obstacles and hindrances. Setbacks can often be disheartening, but perseverance is the key in every aspect of life.

Surjeet Thakur lays the foundation of CIIM

After bidding goodbye to his regular job in 2010, Surjeet started to train people in Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Pay-Per-Click (PPC), and other prevalent digital marketing techniques, inside a small room establishment.

Revised Courses

Two years later, the existing digital marketing courses were upgraded to bring all contemporary niches on-board. This ensured that our trainees were gaining skills in all industry-specific digital marketing skills, which would help them get their dream jobs.

Setting up a fully-commercial Institute

After a few years of humble beginnings, CIIM set up its fully-operational commercial institute establishment in Sector-34, Chandigarh. With this, we appointed more expert trainers, started more batches and satisfied the ambitions of more aspirants.

Partnerships with notable companies

By the end of 2015, CIIM had made professional tie-ups with many digital marketing firms in Chandigarh, Mohali, Panchkula, Zirakpur, and Ambala. This was done to ensure a 100% job placement for our students.

Started online batches

We are often regarded as Chandigarh’s “first digital marketing institute to go online”. Even in pre-COVID times, we knew the importance and power of online learning. This medium of training proved immensely useful, especially for housewives and the elderly

Going Completely-online during COVID-19

During the global coronavirus outbreak and subsequent lockdowns in 2020, we went completely online with all 90+ course modules and trained students via live video classes. This made sure that learning didn’t stop even at the peak of adversities. As the lockdown and movement restrictions eased, we started with our regular offline courses as well, though with only limited seats so as to maintain social distancing and safe COVID-19 protocols.

We launched night batches

There are some students who love to learn during the night, as there are no disturbances and they can easily focus on any given topic. For these night owls, we launched a number of batches that had their classes at any time between 11 p.m. - 2 a.m. Our night batches got instantly popular upon launch.

Record Job Placements

Most of the companies recovered from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and began hiring full-time digital marketers even if some positions being offered were "work from home". Many companies visited the CIIM campus and hired the best talent for diverse roles, helping us create a record!

Adopting Innovative Methods of Training

When cutting-edge technology is combined with highly effective training pedagogies, the end result is a revolutionary method of teaching. We at CIIM continuously innovate in our way of teaching. This makes the concepts easier to grasp and keep in mind for a longer time even without revision.

100% Job Placement Assistance & Focus on AI tools

CIIM now provides its students 100% Job Placement Assistance. Many top companies visit our institute to offer jobs to CIIM students. Besides that, now all our courses go in-depth on numerous AI tools that are shaping the future. We believe digital marketers must become experts at using AI tools, as they not only save time and effort, but also add great value to their resume.
