The Company, already a leader in the education sector, will now participate in the massive task of educating the global community to work in parallel with the latest AI developments. This initiative, demanding heightened efficacy and efficiency in education and training, is set to elevate the quality of life and lifestyle for populations around the world.
The Board has appointed Mr. Charlie Penn to serve as the Company's Chief Operating Officer due to his extensive investment and education management experience.

He led the management upgrade of the college from being registered by the BC PCTIA to being recognized as a college accreditation, offering Pre-University English, Business Diploma, and University credit transfer courses. A large number of international students enrolled in multiple Canadian and US universities after completing the college's English and Pre-University courses. Mr. Penn presided over the signing of distance education cooperation agreements with Lincoln University, Central University, and City University in the United States, offering MBA/BBA distance education classrooms, and organizing course exams and graduation ceremonies for American universities at the college in British Columbia.
