  ECOKNIGHTS BENEFITED FROM ADOBE CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL; WINNING DESIGNS TO FEATURE AT 16TH INTERNATIONAL KL ECO FILM FEST

Friday 24/05/2024



KUALA LUMPUR, May 24 (Bernama) -- The third Micro-Credentials Education Summit (MCES) launched in Kuala Lumpur on May 23, 2024, with over 300 delegates from federal ministries, government agencies, industry, and 110 higher education institutions. Deputy Minister Teo Nie Ching officiated, coinciding with the Creative Cloud Community (CCC)'s Adobe Certified Professional (ACP) and MOS Malaysia National Championship 2024 finale.

Themed "Preparing for Tomorrow’s Workforce," MCES 2024 acts as a global education hub, fostering collaboration, innovation, and change. It encourages dialogue between education and industry to ensure future talents are workforce-ready.

In her opening remarks, Teo highlighted “The creative industry, particularly in creating visual and video contents, recognises a compelling need for the production team to have validated skills such as video editing in post-production.”

“To this end, FINAS actively implements a wide array of human capital development programs, ranging from workshops and masterclasses to film appreciation programs, seminars, community initiatives, and beyond with 3,700 participants over the last year.”

Dato’ Kamil Othman, chairman of the National Film Development Corporation (FINAS), remarked “At FINAS, we are committed to integrating craftsmanship with cutting-edge technology, optimising this methodology to produce world-class content.”

The summit facilitated a live dialogue between educational institutions and industry representatives to align outcomes with industry needs. It explored micro-credentials, bridging academic learning with practical skills.

Case studies showcased effective upskilling and AI integration, improving student job prospects. The summit shared Vietnam's digital skills strategies, encouraging similar approaches worldwide.

Natalie Sit, Acestar’s managing director, emphasised “Micro-Credentials and AI will be the future of our national education and talent acquisition ecosystem. Acestar Group welcome all partners to collaborate in turning this vision into a reality as we are aiming for 3 million Malaysians to be upskilled and certified in the upcoming few years,” 

The event concluded with the declaration of winners for CCC's ACP and Microsoft Office Specialist Malaysia Championship 2024. ACP assessed Adobe software skills, MOS focused on Microsoft Office. Champions will compete in the Certiport World Championship 2024 in Anaheim, California. This year, EcoKnights was selected as the NGO Partner-Beneficiary Body for the ACP, with the winning designs being designated as the official posters for the 16th International Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Fest organised by EcoKnights. 

The 16th International Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Fest (KLEFF), Southeast Asia’s longest-running ecofilm festival, is collaborating with CCC’s ACP Malaysia National Championship 2024 and ‘Kempen Air Kita’, supported by the National Water Services Commission (SPAN), to creatively educate on sustainable water management.

“Malaysians' daily water consumption per person averages 237L versus World Health Organization's (WHO) recommended 165L, thus KLEFF’s theme, ‘Water: Sustainably Yours’ highlights the importance of internally-motivated behaviours in water consumption based on informed decision-making process,” explained Amlir Ayat, KLEFF Honorary Advisor, on this year’s championship theme.

Malaysian youths have previously achieved notable successes in the Adobe Certified Professional World Championship, bringing home several top titles. The press release urged corporate sponsor support.
