The credit for the resounding success of Expert Coaching Classes goes to the vision of its Chairman Prof. Narendra L Nayak.

Beginning his career as a lecturer at the National Institute of Technology Karnataka, Surathkal (formerly Karnataka Regional Engineering College, Surathkal), for about 2 years, he started Expert Coaching Classes in a small way in December 1986. Now this institution has grown to be the best in the entire state of Karnataka.
