The training workshop, with about 30 participants from Kaohsiung Customs, was designed to further customs officers’ knowledge on Radiation Portal Monitor (RPM) safety, enhance their troubleshooting skills, and enrich their hands-on experiences. It did not only mark Kaohsiung Customs's effort to improve the sustainability of Megaports system, but also demonstrate Taiwan's contribution to the global anti-terrorism campaign.

The four-day workshop allowed the participants to improve their technical and practical knowledge, as well as troubleshooting skills. At the end of the workshop, a gathering with banquet was held at the auditorium of Xiaogang Branch of Kaohsiung Customs. Attendees of the event included Mr. Arthur C.W. Yang, Director of Kaohsiung Customs, Mr. Bob DeWitt, Chief of American Institute in Taiwan, Kaohsiung Branch Office, the US technical team, potential local maintenance providers, representatives of Taiwan International Ports Corporation (TIPC), and yard operators. In an atmosphere of friendship and harmony, the Megaports Workshop was brought to a successful close.
