VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 24, 2013) - Brighton College, a reputable Vancouver-based career college, officially announced the launch of its newest program, the Structural and Building Technology Diploma.

The first intake for the Structural and Building Technology Diploma was September 23rd, with regular and consistent intakes scheduled thereafter.
