The purpose of this qualification is to train the learner to operate and qualify as a Painter artisan. The Painter must
be able to prepare a variety of substrates – using hand and power tools – for painting, use basic, intermediate and
advanced painting techniques involving brushes, rollers, to paint substrates in either decorative or industrial
environments and on new or previously painted surfaces.
The learners will attend institutionalised training at our centres which are situated in Cape Town, Kya Sands and Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth). The course is broken up into three sessions of 8 weeks per year over a period of three years. In year 1 they will focus on Hand skills and tools, the introduction to the painting industry, and painting of all new surfaces on concrete, plaster, PVC and metal surfaces.
In year 2 they focus on the painting of existing painted surfaces on concrete, plaster, PVC and metal surfaces and the painting of new floors.
Then in year 3 they will focus on the fitting of domestic glazing, painting of roofs gutters and downpipes and wooden surfaces and the painting of pre-painted floors.
