Cert III Painting and Decorating

Big thank you to the team at Best Option Training for helping me complete my Cert III in Painting and Decorating. I had completed by apprenticeship in Scotland many years ago but unfortunately my qualifications aren’t recognised over here in Australia. This course helped prove my capability and guided me through all the process. Could not fault them one bit and they have been so helpful and amazing to work with. Highly recommend to anyone looking to apply for a painting licence. Now I can officially say I am a licenced painter in Australia also.
