Soon all trades will be required to be licensed, not to mention the self satisfaction you gain of being trade qualified.
The best part is that in most cases - it's free!
How can you become trade qualified? In today's world there are alternate ways to become a qualified tradesperson. You already know about traditional apprenticeship courses, but by now you have been working in the trade for a while and are well past that stage. Thankfully, you don't have to go back to trade school to gain a qualification. Recognised Prior Learning could be available to you.
Multi Skills Training in partnership with Sunraysia TAFE have developed a program which will give you credit for the experience, skills and knowledge you have gained. Through RPL we have made it as simple as possible for you to become qualified in your trade.
A Multi Skills Assessor will meet with you to confirm you meet the requirements of the trade qualification, answer any questions you may have and assist you in the evidence gathering process. If you have been working in your trade you can benefit from undertaking RPL with Multi Skills Training.
