Becoming a Chartered Professional is challenging and it is important to thrive in this competitive industry. With the experience of mentoring hundreds of aspirants, Mr. Ramesh Palikila designed the program in the best way, which enlightened the life of many people, including me. AIMS is the best platform to my knowledge for a Quantity Surveying Professional to improve their standards and fill gaps in their skills. Aspirants who joined AIMS receive many intangible benefits. The best part of it, which I like, is the efforts taken to help candidates transform more than the minimum acceptable standards of a Chartered Professional as expected in the industry. It was a fantastic journey of one year where I was mentored by some of the most experienced people and after becoming a Chartered Professional, I am still enjoying my association with AIMS. I thank Mr. Ramesh for his invaluable service to aspirants and recommend every QS who aims to become a Chartered Professional to join AIMS.

Joining AIMS was one of the wisest decisions I have taken in my career. Unlike other training institutes, AIMS provides frequent follow-ups during each steps of the APC programme, from initial enrollment to final interviews for all candidates. The programme is well structured to build confidence and impart motivation to the participants. It is amazing to think that Ramesh found  time to talk personally to each APC aspirant in spite of his busy schedule.                         
The team /study group formed by AIMS is an asset that we can take lifelong with us. The mentors were very helpful, and they shared their APC experiences which helped us to focus in the right direction. Another positive fact is that AIMS always provides a platform to all  its’ members, to share their expertise and this stimulates the mentoring skills in them. I can undoubtedly say that AIMS played the major part in achieving my aim to become a 'Chartered Quantity Surveyor'. My sincere gratitude to ‘Captain’ Ramesh and all other members of AIMS family for their constant support and guidance. I wish AIMS a every continued success in all its future endeavors.

“I completed MSC in Quantity Surveying from Herriot Watt University (from Dubai Campus) in 2014 and applied for APC interview in 2015. I was not so confident about my success at that time. I met Mr. Ramesh Palikila during this period when he visited Oman for the very first time. That was the turning point of my success in becoming a Chartered Quantity Surveyor. I joined AIMS in 2015 and Mr. Ramesh helped me a lot to improve my presentation skill and he also conducted several mock-up interviews to keep me competent for the APC interview. My sincere thanks to Mr. Ramesh Palikila and the entire AIMS team for their invaluable support”

As of day 1, I found it a privilege, a unique chance to be admitted to follow AIMS sessions. It is simply a lovely gift that still gives me pleasure every day in my profession. The course exceeded my expectations in many regards -- especially in the depth of information and sharing of invaluable industry experiences. The reference material and professional network has been top notch, and I liked the variety of lecturers and different teaching styles which motivates me enormously. The contribution of charges which I’ve paid for these sessions is nothing as compared to the wide knowledge and real time skills that AIMS offer in a professional environment at international venues and absolute care on various event facilities. Without reservation, I recommend AIMS programs  to all who have the desires to rise up to the higher level of their profession, for better life, confidence, and great opportunities

Mr. Darbar – Kuwait



When I embarked on my journey to become a Chartered Quantity Surveyor with RICS, I took the help of AIMS. I found extremely well-planned and structured sessions which covered theoretical knowledge of all the 18 competencies in great detail. I found these sessions to be very interactive, thus helping me clear all queries regarding the topics. My practical knowledge was further enhanced by the group study sessions which also helped me to develop my communication and presentation skills. The mock interview gave me the final boost before the final interview. I am extremely grateful to Mr. Ramesh for his tireless efforts and guidance to help me to achieve my goal. He has been instrumental in providing many Chartered Surveyors to the construction industry. I wish him all success in his endeavor to achieve a global reach.
