OUR PROGRAMS

Sun Country Academy was developed and designed to ensure the safety of EV drivers, first responders, mechanics and the general public.

Delivered by traditional in-class and on-site training, as well as web-based/online format, we have established the first certification in the safe handling of Electric Vehicles in the World.

Program specific training varies in length from 40 to 80 hours depending upon the subject matter. These first of its kind, third-party training programs and technology are proprietary to Sun Country and they are offered throughout the world wherever Electric Vehicles are on the roads. We anticipate that the introduction of this specialized training will experience robust growth in every market we are operating and many where this will be a standalone venture. The opportunity for expansion and licensing of the program will be rapid.

Sun Country Academy is supporting the adoption of electric vehicles and creating a model for economic, social and environmental sustainability.

ACADEMY TEAM

Kent Rathwell

Founder, CEO

Kent’s entrepreneurial business career began at a young age and in 2007 he began his sustainable voyage in Saskatchewan when he purchased and re-purposed Sun Country Farms as the most sustainable business in the province. In 2012 Kent built the ‘World’s Longest Green Highway’ on his own dime to prove that one person could make a difference; he did it with speed and efficiency creating massive awareness, momentum and a lot of confusion within the EV space. As a result of this and many initiatives the added value of Sun Country is, ‘we care and our actions prove it’.
