Queensland Painters Licensing
How to get a QBCC Trade Contractor Painter's Licence in Queensland
Certificate III Painting and Decorating is the nationally recognised qualification for painters and can be obtained by completing an apprenticeship, or by a skills assessment called Recognition of Prior Learning.
Getting Qualified and Certified
To be eligible for RPL Skills Assessment you must have a minimum of 4 years full-time experience as a painter.
The National Institute of Painting and Decorating, in partnership with Best Option Training RTO 41246 is the leading training provider for painters, and can help you get qualified and licensed.
Training will be provided in any subjects you don't already know. The training will be provided on your work-site and through our e-learning system, which means you don't need to take a lot of time off work to complete it.
Once you get qualified and licensed you will get free mentoring, stickers, a web-page and brochures to promote your business.
If you have more than 4 years experience but are not qualified the cost is $2500 for the Certificate and business course. You have up to 3 months to complete the course
