Project: Painting and Decorating


Stage 2

On behalf of the Construction, Plumbing and Services IRC, Artibus Innovation is reviewing and updating the CPC3XX19 Certificate III in Painting and Decorating qualification and 17 units of competency.

The Technical Advisory Group has agreed to make the latest draft of the qualification and units available for stakeholder comment until April 5th, 2019.

Artibus Innovation is seeking broad painting industry feedback on the proposed updates to the Certificate III in Painting and Decorating.

The Technical Advisory Group has evaluated industry feedback and has made key recommendations on the packaging of the qualification and to the intent and content of the units.

Discussion continues about the content of the following two units:

  • CPCCPD3034 - Apply advanced decorative paint finishes
  • CPCCPD3031 - Implement safe lead paint and asbestos work practices in the painting industry

Stakeholder comment on these units will assist the TAG to determine what updates are required.

The TAG has also been informed of the latest Construction, Plumbing and Services IRC decisions to incorporate:

  1. CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction unit in the core of each CPC qualification
  2. the following statement to the Application section of every CPC unit:

‘Completion of the general construction induction training program specified by the model Code of Practice for Construction Work is required for any person who is to carry out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.‘

The qualification and units have been amended to reflect the IRC’s decision.
