Brighton College’s Surrey campus is now offering AutoCAD and Construction Technician programs! Be closer to home while you work on your career.

Develop the essential skills you need to fast-track your career in your spare time. The official start date for both programs is June 23, 2014.


The AutoCAD Certificate program focuses on top level AutoCAD, construction and Revit Architecture courses, to prepare students with the necessary training for careers as designers, drafters and project managers. You will discover how to use 2D and 3D AutoCAD design software and management tools that are frequently used in the industry. Your enhanced illustration skills will help attract future employers in the construction and engineering industries. The program is 13 weeks of instruction with an optional 4 weeks of practicum. The purpose of the practicum is for students to apply the concepts learnt throughout the program in a professional environment at various sized engineering and design businesses in the Lower Mainland.
