PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
The greatest technical skills need exists regarding:
  • Surface preparation before painting
  • Area preparation
  • Selecting and applying different paints to different surfaces according to specification, using paint techniques to apply undercoats and final coats, and to varnish surfaces
  • Paint preparation
  • Handling the required equipment
  • Knowledge of different paints
  • Knowledge of materials used
  • Knowledge of different surfaces
  • Planning the paint job, by obtaining information about painting requirements

    The purpose of the qualification is that qualifying learners are able to prepare, prime and coat absorbent and non-absorbent surfaces using conventional construction painting skills, without supervision. A construction painter who works without supervision should be able to establish a site, install and use access equipment, select the correct materials, tools and equipment, prepare and prime surfaces, and paint surfaces, employing safe and healthy work practices. In addition, the qualifying learner will demonstrate competence in two areas of specialisation, elected from applying wallpaper, special surfaces, basic business practices, and industrial protective painting. The qualified learner is able to competently fulfil painting contracts safely and in a professional manner, to ensure that industry standards are maintained. 

  • RECOGNISE PREVIOUS LEARNING? 

    EXIT LEVEL OUTCOMES 
    On achieving this qualification, learners will be able to:
  • calculate quantities for construction painting materials
  • apply basic business concepts to manage a small enterprise
  • communicate verbally and non-verbally with customers
  • establish the health and safety of a work area
  • render basic first aid
  • establish the structure of a work area
  • erect, use and dismantle access equipment
  • select materials, tools and equipment
  • prepare and prime surfaces
  • paint surfaces
  • apply special surface coatings
  • apply wallpaper
  • apply industrial protective coatings 

  • ASSOCIATED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA 
    In particular, assessors should assess that the learner demonstrates an ability to consider a range of options by:
  • Measuring the quality of the observed practical performance as well as the theory and underpinning knowledge.
  • Using methods that are varied to allow the learner to display thinking and decision making in the demonstration of practical performance.
  • Maintaining a balance between practical performance and theoretical assessment methods to ensure each is measured in accordance with the level of the qualification.
  • Taking into account that the relationship between practical and theoretical is not fixed but varies according to the type and level of qualification. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    These standards have been developed in line with international standards for the same level of learning and application. Specific comparisons have been made with the standards employed in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, and some standards are based on those used in New Zealand. Included are the New Zealand National Certificates in Painting and Decorating (with strands in Specialised Coatings, Industrial Coatings, and Decorating) - Levels 3 to 5, the Australian National Certificates in Painting and Decorating - Levels 1 to 4, and the British National Vocational Qualification for Painting and Decorating (Construction), Level 3. The credits and outcomes are comparable to the qualification developed here, at NQF level 3. 

    ARTICULATION OPTIONS 
    This qualification has been developed for mobility across similar trades within the industry and is intended to allow for further learning towards supervisory and management qualifications within this and other sectors. This qualification builds on other certificates from a range of sub-sectors and will provide articulation with a range of qualifications in both technical and management areas. Articulation on the Framework is possible with qualifications such as Construction Plastering, and Construction Tiling, as well as fundamental Unit Standards in this qualification with those in others, such as Unit Standards 8558, 7784, 7788, 7885, and 8556. Also, articulation with ABET Level 4, and with FET Levels 2 and 4 qualifications is possible. The competencies attained during this qualification provides a basis for further learning towards SMME management, entrepreneurship, construction site supervision, scaffolding erection, spray painting, sandblasting, decorating, glazing, etc. 

    MODERATION OPTIONS
