1. Valuing Your Experience in the Trade

Practical knowledge and hands-on experience are invaluable in the painting industry. Whether it’s understanding the subtleties of paint application or managing the complexities of large-scale commercial projects, your on-the-job learning is your most significant asset.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) acknowledges this by evaluating your real-world experience and converting it into nationally recognised qualifications.

2. The RPL Process for Painters

RPL bridges the gap between informal learning and formal certification. With the help of our Partner RTOs, OZCAREER specialises in simplifying this process for painters. By documenting your experiences and matching them against the criteria of recognised qualifications, RPL validates your expertise, making it visible and valuable to employers and clients alike.
