Qualification Description

Workers with this qualification have tradesperson-level skills in the manufacture and/or installation of products, including furniture and cabinetry, made from timber and other materials.

They have core skills in tool use, measuring, drawing (including computer-aided design), interpreting work documentation, preparing cutting lists, communication, teamwork, and safe and environmentally sustainable work practices. They may have specialised skills in wood machining, cabinet and furniture making, kitchen and bathroom construction and installation, marine cabinetry, coopering or drafting.

Work is in a defined range of skilled operations, usually within a range of broader activities involving established routines, methods and procedures, where some discretion and judgement is required in the selection of equipment, services or contingency measures. Individuals collaborate with others to achieve quality outcomes and take responsibility for their own work. They may have some limited responsibility for the work of others.

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.
