The Certificate II in Building and Construction (Painting and Decorating) is offered as a pre-apprenticeship to local students. This pre-apprenticeship course develops your skills through a wide range of tasks and use of various materials in the painting industry. At Melbourne Polytechnic, students will learn skills across the building and construction industry as well as specific skills in painting and decorating.
The minimum age requirement for applicants is 16 years. If the student is under 18 years, they must have a completed release form from their school. Students will receive a reduction in training by approximately 6 months when they return as apprentices.
