Vancouver Community College Offers Kitchen and Bath Design
Vancouver Community College has a unique program for students that are looking to learn how to professionally design kitchens.
Their Kitchen and Bath Design Diploma program is the first of its kind in the province and can be studied part-time over 11-months.
“Specialty design of kitchens and bathrooms is a popular career choice as new home construction and home renovations continue to rise,” said Bernie Lyon, program coordinator, Vancouver Community College Continuing Studies.
The program is also the only program in British Columbia to receive support status from the National Kitchen and Bath Association of North America. This means all students in the program have a NKBA student membership and access to continent-wide competitions and scholarships.
There are up to 20 seats open for the September 2012 intake. Potential students must have Vancouver Community College’s interior design certificate, or have equivalent education from another accredited institution.
Students learn design theory, construction basics, sustainable practices, new and emerging products and systems, and the business of kitchen and bath. The program is made up of nine 36 hour courses (324 hours) within the Kitchen and Bath Certificate, as well as a 160 hour practicum.
