You will develop a range of skills that will allow you to stand out from the crowd when applying for jobs.

The Certificate III Painting and Decorating qualification provides a trade outcome in painting and decorating, covering work in residential and commercial applications. The Inscope Training Program is flexible, and focuses on matching your learning progress with the on-the-job experience you gain week to week.

This qualification has 27 units of competency comprised of 23 core units and 4 elective units to be selected from the list below.

Inscope Training also provides apprentices with a comprehensive portfolio of their work required for potential further education in the building and construction industry.

Prospects

Once you have completed our course, you will be a fully qualified painter and decorator. With this qualification you can choose to work with larger businesses, or you can also set up your own business, build up your own client base with trade skills that will set you apart from your competitors.

Most of our apprentices choose our Trade Contarctor’s course as an elective unit, so that when they complete their trade they have the required qualifications they need to become a trade contractor.

Should you have any questions or queries regarding our painting and decorating course, please feel free to contact us directly on 1300 579 808. Our friendly team will be on hand to provide you with the answers that you may need.

Costs

The typical fees that an apprentice (or their employer) pays for this trade is about $1,750 over 4 years. This is because the QLD government subsidises the bulk of the costs of your training.

If you qualify for a partial exemption, you will only be required to pay approximately $700 over the 4 years of your training.

Depending on your personal circumstances, you may even be eligible for a full fee exemption so you won’t have to pay anything at all.

Call us now to find out if you qualify for any fee exemptions.

Why choose Inscope Training?

Our Trainers - When you sign us with Inscope Training, one of our trainers will be assigned to you personally for the duration of your apprenticeship. They will guide you through your trade-training journey from day one, until the day you finish your trade.

Your trainer will be there to help you on a daily basis if you need it. Your progress will be closely monitored, and your employer will be regularly and actively involved in making sure you are progressing smoothly.

Our System - Inscope Training has built its own training platform from scratch, with our focus being on you, our apprentice. We want every aspect of your training to be clear and simple. If it isn’t, tell your trainer and we guarantee we will fix the problem.

And instead of going off-site for weeks on end to do your ‘block’ training with a trainer you probably have never even met before, doing your trade the Inscope way means you will do your theory training at your own pace on-line. You will gain all the practical, trade-related skills that you need from your boss on the work-site. That way you get the benefit of first rate on-line learning, as well as getting first rate industry-relevant skills. It's a simple win-win formula!

This means your boss doesn’t have to worry about losing you at busy times. They will still provide you with plenty of time at work to study, but trade-training the Inscope way provides the flexibility to do this when it suits both you, and your boss. Again, it's a simple win-win formula.

Again, it's a simple win-win formula.

Our Learning resources - Most of the learning resources you will encounter will have been made by an Inscope Training content expert. Our reason for this is simple - we want to provide you with the best training resources we can.

We are constantly reviewing and improving our training resources, and we actively encourage both you and your boss to give us feedback for improvements and hopefully some great ideas to train the next generation of apprentices.
