A K M Iqbal Bahar has been serving as an English Instructor at International Maritime Academy (IMA) since June, 2014. Here his main responsibility is to impart knowledge on English language and communication skills to pre-sea cadets and rating trainees. In doing so, he uses a range of course books and materials, plus a variety of audio-visual aids.

Overall, he follows a systematic plan of learning activities and lectures aligned with the model course curriculum of International Maritime Organization (IMO).
