Board examinations – painters

This page is for: 

The Building Services (Registration) Regulations 2011 require certain painting practitioner applicants under set 2 and 4 to demonstrate experience sufficient to gain knowledge and skills equivalent to those possessed by a person who has completed the 52202 Course in Painter’s Registration.
The Regulations allow the Board to conduct examinations to assess a person’s knowledge and skills in relation to building work.

If you have not completed the 52202 Course in Painter’s Registration or an equivalent qualification as determined by the Board and you intend to undertake the Board’s examinations, you will need to undertake the examinations before applying to be registered.

Please complete the “Intention to sit Board examinations” form and submit to the Building Commission.  The scheduled examination dates are listed below.

Once you have completed all examinations you must lodge an application for practitioner registration within 12 months, otherwise you may be required to re-sit the examinations.

2017 Examination dates

  • 23 August
  • 22 November

Applicants under set 4 are also required to complete a Practical Trades Test.  Please contact South Metropolitan TAFE (Thornlie) or the Master Painters’ Association Skills (Maylands) for further information.
