IEM Shout Out – 2017-11 Two Day Course on “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There: A Critical Thinking Journey


My technical division will be hosting a 2 day course on the 14th and 15th November 2017. It is worth 10.5 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Ir.

During this course, we will be introduced to what is critical thinking.
