SCNU held an online Chinese teacher training program for the United Chinese School Committees' Association of Malaysia (UCSCAM), aiming to further spread Chinese language education and deepen cultural exchange between the two countries. 

The training, which was held by way of remote courses due to the epidemic, includes a variety of activities, such as on-line lectures, cloud visits to representative middle schools, community building, participative training, case studies, and symposiums.
