The idea of having a training centre was conceived for augmenting the training facility in Coast Guard. It was envisaged that the training centre will cater for training of specialized Coast Guard related subjects and will provide training to personnel of both Indian Coast Guard and also of outside Maritime agencies. Accordingly, a board of officers under then Commandant Gurupdesh Singh was tasked to look into the formation of CGTC in Jan 2002. On the basis of their recommendation, Coast Guard Headquarters decided to have a training centre for CG specific subjects. Subsequently, Coast Guard Training Centre was established in 2002 and began functioning within the premises of  No. 4 Coast Guard District Headquarters.
Over a period of years, the number of courses has increased. Also, this institute started training personnel from other Maritime Agencies as well. The strength of trainees has also been on rise with each passing year. At present, on an average 500 personnel from Coast Guard and other organizations are being trained in different courses every year. CGTC also caters for maritime training for other Government agencies with marine element like Coastal Marine Police, IRBN, BSF water wing, NACEN and Customs. Foreign Officers from Maldives and Bangladesh have also been trained by this centre.
