The application of a clear, resin based or pigmented product in liquid form which, when applied to a surface by brush, roller or spray gun, forms a dry, adherent film. Paint may be applied for decorative or protective purposes and may be applied to any appropriate surface on any structure, fixture, fitting or apparatus. For licensing purposes, works encompassed by the term painting include, but are not necessarily limited to:
(1) Completion of CPC30611 Certificate III in Painting and Decorating
(2) Completion of any of the following qualifications:
If you have ever held a licence in the prescribed classes (Home Building Regulation 2004, clause 46, excluding subsection (1)(a)) and you apply for a new licence, your previous licence will be accepted in lieu of the current qualification requirements.
To find a Registered Training Organisation that provides the qualification listed above, refer to the information on building licensing courses.
Since 2015, stand-alone contracts for internal paintwork no longer need a licence, unless done as part of other home building work. Please refer to the Major changes to home building laws page for more information.
