Training Courses


The National Institute of Painting and Decorating is the leading provider of education for the painting industry. Our world-first e-learning system allows you to study at home, on-line, when it suits you. On-line short courses are designed to help painters update their skills and train their staff, anytime, anywhere.

It is important that you and your employees keep up to date. The benefits of training yourself and your staff include:

  • Safer Work Practices
  • Higher quality work
  • A more professional image to consumers
  • Better efficiency
  • A more flexible work force
  • Better pay
  • Improved EPA and WHS legislation compliance

There are often generous government incentives to help you get trained and qualified.

NPDI on-line courses follow a simple 3-step procedure:

  1. Watch the multi-media video lessons, which are presented by the industry's leading trainers, using animation and showing you the latest techniques. Answer the questions.
  2. Upload photos and videos of yourself performing your new practical skills
  3. Once you complete the course a certificate will be sent to you to confirm your completion of the course.

All you need is to be working in the industry, and an internet connected device.
