Queensland Painters Licensing

To obtain a painters license in Queensland you will need to complete Certificate III Painting and Decorating, and a Business Management Course.
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.
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 Aussie Painters Network 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 $2990 for the Certificate and business course. It usually takes about 5 days to complete.
If you are already qualified you only need to complete the QBCC Business Contractors Course, BSBSMB401A Establish legal and risk management requirements of small business, which costs $200 for Queensland residents (subsidised by CSQ) and takes 8 hours to complete
