Towards the end of 2020, I overcome my resistance towards virtual events and participated in the Seol International Invention Fair 2020 (SIIF2020). For this event, I submitted our Auto-Select IoT Vehicle Management System (AS-IVMS), which is a radical upgrade from the system that won Gold at MTE2020 back in February.
In my second collaboration with the Minghsin University of Science & Technology (MUST), Taiwan. I was invited to conduct a second workshop on IoT for their students and staff. A year earlier (Dec 2019), I visited MUST in person and conducted a 3DAY workshop for their student and staff members of the Mechanical Engineering Department. This time around, I was invited to conduct a session specifically for Software Engineering Department.
Another professional recognition and certification. After undergoing the 5-Day Train-The-Trainer workshop and successfully passing its gruelling test, I was awarded the Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) official certification. The HRDF is an agency under the Ministry of Human Resources of Malaysia. It is the official certification body for Training in Malaysia. Being HRDF certified means my skills and abilities as a trainer has been vetted and verified by the HRDF, and so I am qualified to provide Training in Malaysia.
As a follow up to the MTE2020, we attended a national event, the 2020 Minggu Penyelidikan & Inovasi, or the 2020 Research & Innovation Week (MPI2020), hosting participants from Malaysia's Universities, Colleges, and University Colleges. I Participated with two products, and we did well in this event, scoring a GOLD & SILVER Awards.
