This qualification is aimed at those who are involved in preparing surfaces and applying decorative finishes to surfaces. It is not expected that candidates working in this industry all do the same activities; the qualification is structured to ensure that there is a high degree of flexibility within the units available. The qualification requires candidates to prove they have the skills and knowledge to prepare surfaces and apply surface coatings by brush and roller and use access equipment.
The standards cover the most important aspects of the job. This qualification is at Level 2, although some units may be at different levels and should be taken by those who are fully trained to deal with routine assignments. Candidates should require minimum supervision in undertaking the job.
There is also a Level 3 qualification in this field available from GQA, please email info@gqaqualifications with any queries
