Is a qualification required for the Painting Trades skills assessment Australia?

To apply for the Painting Trades skills assessment, you need to either;

  • Hold an NVQ Level 3 as a Painting Trades worker and have 3 years of paid work experience post NVQ Level 3
  • Or if you do not hold an NVQ Level 3 as a Painting Trades worker, then you will need to obtain the AQF Certificate III in Painting and Decorating and prove 6 years of full-time paid work experience as a Painting Trades worker, so you can then move forward to apply for the Painting Trades skills assessment.

If you have a UK qualification as a Painter and do not need the AQF III for the visa, then you may want to consider still obtaining the AQF as this will help when you are looking for Painting Trade jobs in Australia.
