Project: Completion Services - Wall and Ceiling Lining

Stage 5Stage 5

Building Completion Services

Artibus has been reviewing and updating qualifications for a number of trades involved in the final stage of the construction process: roof tiling, solid plastering, wall and ceiling ling, wall and floor tiling and construction waterproofing.



Thankyou to everyone who has provided input into this project. The Case for Endorsement will be considered by the Australian Industry Skills Committee at their meeting on February 25th. A project update will be released upon receipt of the official Communique from that meeting.

Most of these services, also known as finishing trades, have been identified by the Australian Government as being in high demand (National Skills Needs List). The sector is dominated by small to medium-sized businesses.

Certificate III in Wall and Ceiling Lining

This qualification provides trade skills and knowledge for wall and ceiling lining, also known as hanging plasterboard or drywall.

Units within this qualification have been updated to address new technologies and techniques, regulatory and  licensing requirements in all jurisdictions, and the requirements of the National Construction Code.

Changes have been made to the structure of the qualification. The current qualification, CPC31211, requires the completion of 19 core and 7 elective units. The updated qualification will require the completion of 23 core and 7 elective units.

  • CPCCPB3011A Finish category 1 and 2 wet areas has been removed from the qualification (formerly a core unit). 
  • CPCCWC3003 Install dry wall passive fire-rated systems, CPCCWC3004 Install suspended ceilings, CPCCCA3014 Construct and install bulkheads, and CPCCCA3026 Assemble partitions have been added to the core (formerly they were electives).
  • CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry has been added as a core unit.
